No...(my mother used to call the buzz cut a RahRah) My brother always got those. The pixie was more like a Bowl Cut...short with bangs but the sides were more tapered; unlike the bowl cut.

    Very similar with more tapered sides shorter if you can picture it.

    When I was 3 or 4, I got to go shopping with my mom and her best friend  (Girls day).  It was a big deal for me, cuz usually we only got to go (40mi away) for back to school shopping.  My twin Bro, stayed home with Dad.  While we were gone Dad shaved off his mustache.  When we got home my Bro, and "some strange man" greeted us at the door, I took a direct right, (instead of straight to them) and wouldn't go near the door.  I couldn't understand why my brother was with some stranger.  I don't remember them convincing me it was really my daddy, but I very vividly remember taking that right.

    One of my most embarrassing moments (I was a kid...so it was mortifying)
    Every late November early December my mother would let my brother and I have a bunk school day to go for our yearly check up with the pediatrician. 

    We'd go to the city and make a day of it; doc's, lunch, holiday shopping...it was the early 70's. Long hair, bell bottoms, VW vans...etc.  Saddled with bags, my mother said, "I'm hungry must be lunch time; go ask that blonde haired lady what time it is."  I stroll to the woman on the sidewalk, tap her arm from behind and say, "Excuse me Miss, do you have the correct time?"
    She whips around, MY EYES BULGED OUT OF MY HEAD:  She, was a he, and had a mustache thicker than Tom Selleck's.  I went back to my mother sobbing.

    Ok...continuuing off topic stories:
        A few years ago, my wife for some reason, really liked watching Murder She Wrote. I think it was relaxing and mindless after work or something like that. I, of course, complained when it was on to no end.
       One day, I come in and sit down and she is watching Angela Lansbury again. I'm reading the paper or something and kind of half watching and suddenly Angela Lansbury gets shot in the head and drops dead!!  I turned to my wife with a big smile and said "This is the best Murder She Wrote, EVER!!"
        Sadly, it turned out that it was some mystery movie, not the series. Still, it was a nice moment...

    Sort of like me watching jaws with DH and pretending like I love it still; like it is the first time that I'm seeing it.

    *Pheww!* I was so afraid he was going to quote her as "while you're down there..."   :-X
    That would have been the end of my career as what they used to call aide or orderly, but really... it might have been less embarrassing.  I see other people have experienced such suffering as well.  Always good to know I'm in good company.   :D

    Wierd.  I used to watch it just to get a ear full of that New England/Maine type accent.  I love accents as you already know.  I really like the one from Maine almost as much as the Southern Magnolia.  Besides my significant other absolutely detested the show and I would get some morbid satisfaction out of that as well when I was feeling crabby. :D

    I always forget about Maine accent.  Can't even remember what it sounds like right now.

    I can hear it, but I can't write it yet.  See, I don't care what the armchair critics say, when I read a character, I want to hear them and when I write them, I want the reader to hear them in their heads and since some of my characters... almost all of them have unique accents, I try to get a good ear for the accent and then spell them out phonetically as best I can.  It's great fun and I hope my readers enjoy it, too.  I have faeries, Irish, Scottish, English, Italian, French, Texan, Southern Magnolia.  Great fun! ;D

    My husband shaved off his mustache...but here's the kicker:  It's been 30 years!!

    Our children (21 and 19):  Have never seen him without it
    Our Niece and Nephews:   Have never seen him without it
    His Co Workers:               Have never seen him without it (He's been there 25 years)
    The Dentist, PCP, Clerks, Bank Teller, Grocery boy, Newspaper Carrier, our Neighbors, My Boss, Many of our Friends:  You guessed it:     Have never seen him without it

    His Mom and my parents barely remember him without it and...I've never really KISSED him without it.  It was sort of peach fuzz when we were in high school (but it was there).  If I'm not on the boards later; you'll know why...though I NEVER KISS AND TELL...lol. ;) :o

    Did he ever grow it back? And did/do you miss it?

    I'm thinking about growing one to impress a girl...one thing led to another (down the rabbit hole of the internet and whatnot) and I ended up here. sjc brought up that it impacts  :-* and I was curious if she thought "A kiss without a mustache is like an egg without salt" or "A kiss without a tickle isn't worth a nickel"

    No harm in asking, right?
