I hear this voice in the other room say -
"Caitlin, don't move. I need you to be still so I can cut around your ears. Don't worry. There's nothing to be afraid of"
I panicked. And when a person panics the very first thing out of their mouth is not always the right thing.
"Dominic Anthony Murrell if you cut Caitlin's hair I will shave your head with the clippers!!!"
Now given his immense fear of the clippers I think my threat was very effective.
Threatening to shave a child's head on the other hand, probably wasn't my greatest moment.
By the way, none of Caitlin's hair was harmed in the making of this story.
