The Joy in “It Really Is a Small World” Stories

Before Sukkot, I went to a different Super Cuts and had my hair cut and the undercut done. I’m glad that the salons have opened, even though they take our temperatures and ask us many questions. Dana, my stylist, was friendly and chatty. We were chatting about family, piercings, tattoos, our Bubbes (Ah, Nan), the warm memories, and different holidays.

By the end, after Dana styled my hair and was about to put it into a bun, he asked if I was familiar with Tribe12. I said I participated in a Zoom event at the end of Yom Kippur, then I thought and said, “you were the one with the one eyed cat!” He replied, “Yes, Beaker!” The other stylist laughed, apparently his cat is famous.

It truly is a small world and I’m going to keep going back to Dana. Here’s to many more laughs.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    You got a great looking haircut, dear friend, and I’m glad you found that you have so much in common with your stylist Dana. You discussed some of your favorite topics including holidays with family, your tats and your beloved and sadly departed Nan.

    You look great, healthy and happy, Jess, and I hope you remain so for the duration of this stubborn pandemic. Don’t forget to get a flu shot. Mrs. Shady and I got ours yesterday.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
