Question: Any of you guys out there ever sported a Mohawk haircut when you were a kid? If so, I have a little tale to tell you.....
Yesterday, in a town in northern Illiniois, T took his son, C, off to the barber and C got a Mohawk. The grade school C attends held what they call a "Wild Hair Day" today, and the kid with the wildest hairdo earned an award.
C was all kinds of excited. Home from the barber, C pulled a muscle man pose and did his best to look mean and tough so his mom could take his picture. He could hardly wait to get to school.
So this morning, his mom gets a phone call from the principal, telling her to come get C. Seems the his 5th grade class got as tickled and excited as C was about that Mohawk haircut and thus a "disturbance" was caused. Thus C would not be allowed back in school until his Mohawk was cut off.
Mom calls Dad. Dad goes to the principal's office. Wants to see the rules on paper that says anything about a Mohawk or any other hairstyle. There are none. Nevertheless, principal says C's out until. Dad asks the principal if she's gonna pay the ten bucks it's gonna cost him for the barber. Principal says no. She has clippers at home and will go and get them and cut off C's hair herself. Dad takes C to the barber and C not only misses seeing who won the award for the wildest hair style, but goes back to school...bald. And very upset.
Additionally, C has missed the awards ceremony.
Whatcha gotta say about that one?
