BUZZ CUT EXPERIMENT THAT WENT AWFULLY WRONG – III

by Allwin Bright

The concluding part

Power resumed after an hour I charged the clipper again and shaved my head completely.

“Not bad at all. A completely shaved head also looks good on you.” The mirror said

“Hmm….Yes it does”

“Now should I also shave my beard?”

“Are you crazy? The goatee beard adds sophistication to your look. Sporting a completely shaved head with a goatee beard is a style statement. Don’t do it Allwin. In this look, you remind me of some of the coolest celebrities around the world.”

“Really, Do I look like one of them?” I asked like a curious six-year-old.

“Of course yes Allwin. You do.”

“Now clean up the mess  and go get some sleep. It’s already too late.”

I woke up before the alarm went off.  (That was so uncharacteristic of me!).

A good 15 minutes was again spent staring at the mirror.

“I am not making a laughing-stock of myself. Am I? ” I asked skeptically.

“Trust me Allwin you look good. All you have to do is carry yourself with poise, with confidence….” It said

@ OFFICE….

As soon as entered into the gates. The security guard greeted me with a smile. Only difference was that it was a BIGGER and a BROOOAADER smile today.

“Its a good thing to do during the summer.” He said

“Ummm… Yeah” I returned a sheepish smile.

I opened the door to get in. People around looked at me with their jaws dropped. A few were already giggling.

Cursed be the damned mirror. It filled my head with a bunch of non-sense. ‘I-look-like-a-celebrity’ was a huge lie. Silly me I should have known.

Feeling embarrassed, avoiding their glares I headed to my cubicle straightaway.

I switched my computer on. It had only been a couple of minutes that a Skype message popped up. It was from a work friend. I’d received an image.

Along with it he sent me the lyrics of this rap song. (Apparently it was from the movie Sivaji – The Boss)

The Boss(3)

I messaged him back

Me: Why ?

Minutes later I received another image on Skype. It was from my lunch-mate this time.

1055

I didn’t message him back to save myself the embarrassment.

Colleagues passing by stopped at my place to tell me how they thought I looked like.

One of them told that I should audition for the main Villain’s role in the Singam III.

One said I looked like anaemic cousin of Vin Diesel.

Another said I looked like malnutrition-ed grandson of Bruce Willis.

My boss said I looked like the guy who hosts the cooking game show “Kitchen Superstar” in Vijay TV.

Others embarrassed me further asking these dreaded questions. I wanted to be invisible. I didn’t want to answer them.

Why mottai (mottai in Tamil refers to a “clean-shaven head”) ?

I can’t tell them the truth. Can I ?

I had to shave my head because I was having an itchy scalp and hair allergies.

Which temple?

No, not in a temple. I got it done in a hair salon.

Suffering from hair-loss eh?

How the hell does he know?

No… No… I am not. I am definitely not suffering from hair loss. It was just that I was having an itchy scalp and some kind of a hair allergy.

I had to totally dodge a few questions like.

Why didn’t get it done in a temple?

Why didn’t you get this beard shaved then?

What kind of hair allergy?

Did you consult a physician?

I got back to home after having a very long and a dreadful day at office.  Just out of curiosity I clicked a few pictures of myself. I captured them with my mobile phone which comes with a VGA camera. And this is how I really looked like.
