Shorn for Comfort: February 9, 2016

February 9, 1927: Virginia bobs her hair

. . . the most important event in my life since marriage: Bobo shingled me.  Mr. Cizec has bingled me.  I am short haired for life.  Having no longer, I think, any claims to beauty, the convenience of this alone makes it desirable.  Every morning I go to take the brush & twist that old coil round my finger & fix it with hairpins & then with a start of joy, no I needn’t.  In front there is no change; behind I’m like the rump of a partridge.
