Because I couldn't see their eyes anymore, I finally took the boys to get their hair cut yesterday. Usually this involves driving about 30 miles, across a bridge, finding parking and change for the meter, and $46. It's a great kid-friendly place, but you can see why I put it off.

So I looked up "kid's haircuts" closer to home and found a place called "Little Scissors." With my usual optimism/flakiness, I left the house with both boys but no address or directions. I knew what street it was on and what it was called, and I figured that would be enough.

So I couldn't find it (didn't see that coming, did ya?) and I finally pulled into a florist's parking lot. I ran in and asked if anyone knew where the kid's haircut place called Little Scissors was. An irate customer stopped being irate and stepped aside and told me it was on a different street. Hmmm. OK. I prepared a rant for the owner on changing her business listing on the internet if she moves....

and I follow the lady's directions, and end up at.....wait for it....






Little Ceaser's.

So I run into the dentist's office next door to Little Ceasars and ask them if they knew where the Kid's Haircut Place Called Little Scissors was. They, again, direct me next door to get some pizza. I pantomime cutting hair and try to articulate REALLY CLEARLY - "Little SCISSORS". No, they don't know where it is, but they have a phone book which solves my problems, and the kids can see again.

Note to self: next time, just ask for the &^%$ directions when you make the stupid appointment.

I wasn't looking for North Dakota dentists, either. I was looking for LITTLE SCISSORS. Sheesh.

It's times like that when I start calling people who might be sitting near a computer and can Google map the location for me. I've called my sister in Ft. Worth to find the new location for my hairdresser in ABQ, my husband in ABQ when my sister and I were lost going to a friend's house in Ft. Worth, and my BIL in Amarillo when we were taking the roundabout way to the Ft. Worth Zoo another time and got lost again. One would think I would invest in GPS or even just a map. But I like to think that I'm making the person feel needed and useful.

So if you're going to drive 30 miles anyway - drive over the hill. I guarantee parking and only charge a hug per haircut.
I think it's a good deal!
