An Existential Haircut Crisis
Okay, here’s another example of a bit of a kid who is too much. They were getting their hair cut at a salon, and the hairdresser was attempting to make some enjoyable, light conversation while they were doing it. They remembered that this youngster had mentioned liking oysters the last time they came in for a haircut, so they decided to ask whether he still liked them. The response was odd.
The parent of an 8-year-old boy told me they didn’t have a favorite meal because they didn’t want to become attached to anything or anyone. Is this youngster all right? First and foremost, what is it about oysters that attracts an 8-year-old so much? Secondly, where did they hear the expression “cultivate attachments”? These days’ youngsters are under too much strain. What happened to playing video games and going outside in nature?
