I Can Smell It

Not only can I smell it, I can almost feel it.

ODells Hair Trainer. The green goo that turned your head into plastic. You had no choice. It was mandatory with all haircuts. This stuff didn’t wash out, it peeled over time.

The Star Barber, Broadway. Oh the smell.

Needless to say I did not go in. NYC, in the late 50s or early 60s this would be the Star Barber.

I may not sleep tonight.
