The Greek Bouzouki blasts from the tv screen overlooking 3 barbers. Two young hip,stylish American Greek men wear sleek black plastic gloves that match their hair color as they trim and buzz the two patrons in the shop.
But the older barber with the creases in the back of his neck, that my kid calls “credit card swipes,”cuts and snips with his bare hands. You just know he’d rather die from Corona before he’d wear sissy plastic gloves. He reeks of machismo.
After he removes the customer cape, and walks to the register-he doesn’t even think about a squirt of Purel. He just scratches his face, hands the patron his credit card receipt and gives himself a quick crotch pinch.
Thank you. No Corona worries here. Opa!!
