Thushan got a much-needed shave and a haircut. And why not? It was right next door to the shop that was fixing our moped’s flat. Later that day I found out that my favorite Vintage Cookie is coming to visit in May! Then we tried to copy K’nyay, one of our local favorites, and made a mean (and ridiculously spicy) banana curry!
Being the copy-cat that I am, I went for a haircut on the way home from work the very next day. The first place I stopped only did up-do’s (it’s big business with all the weddings going on these days). They nicely pointed me across the street, where I made the scissors sign with my fingers and they responded with a positive nod. And so I got a haircut for $1. The exact amount that was to be taken off got lost in translation somehow and it wasn’t much of a cut, but Thushan was quick to point out that at that price, I could get a few more until it was the right length. Truth.
