A Fresh Grooism Plus
Thirteen and a Half Things™

It was inevitable, but ya gotta admire my speed and efficiency …

Ahhh, My First Grooism of 2004!

Boy, I sure don’t waste any time!

At about 1:15am yesterday, that's an hour and fifteen minutes into the New Year, I nailed my first Grooism of 2004!

Some friends and I were hanging around outside of Medieval Times, where we celebrated the New Year, smoking cigars and reminiscing. I was talking about a college friend who lost his hair in his early 20's, yet instead of going toupee or something dopey like that he just Let It Be, and looked quite distinguished.

In describing him, I said he was “shiny bald up top” with short, neat hair on the sides, and to demonstrate gestured front to back across the top of my head with the hand holding the cigar...

...and dropped the lit cigar down the back of my collar!!!


Happy Groo Year, Indeed!!!
