Abe Needs a New Barber

Abe’s barber, Chris, got so confused because strong cold pills he’d abused. Chris hacked up Abe’s haircut, declared, “I’m NOT drunk, but EYES fail me!” Abe was not amused. “For Heaven’s sake!” Abe did exclaim. “Glad you’re not a doctor. You’d maim heads—not only head HAIR!” If you want to be fair, just don’t cut hair when your brain’s lame! January 11, 2019, entered in Joseph May's Limerick II contest

:) Don't think Abe will be paying Chris to cut his hair anymore. Enjoyed, Janice. Congratulations on your win! Best wishes, Carolyn

This is very cute, Janice. I've been afraid to let someone cut my hair as I've done it myself since high school. With my luck, I'd end up getting someone like Chris. Best wishes in Joseph's fun contest. (Bet you found the alphabetical requirement wasn't so hard once you started.) Hugs, Carolyn

Carolyn, thank you so much. Gosh, I cut my own hair too, have for many years now. Actually I found the alphabet requirement very challenging. I came really close to giving up! Janice
