But seeing how the world has taken this on, I realize they anticipated something great.”

Wife appreciation post Now where do I begin, this journey started 2 days ago after 1 month of pestering my wife to cut my hair. She kept delaying it and now I understand why. I showed her you tube videos on how it was to be done (maybe I should have shown her easier videos). Ofcourse she started off really confident cause that’s just her personality, but slowly and surely grew to realise that this was not going to be a piece of cake. Day one started at 2.30 pm and ended at 10pm with me skipping both lunch and workout after which only one side was completed and exhaustion had struck (I wish I took a pic of my day one hair where one side was long and the other short but I guess the exhaustion just took over). Day 2 started at 3.22 pm and ended at 9pm (obviously on day 2 we were smarter than day 1 and had lunch before we started). You all know how the 2 days went but what you all do not know is how patient and dedicated my wife was to the job. She was standing non stop with her neck and hand bent in weird positions and did not once say she was done with it, in fact on day 1 she said she will keep going till it was done. Thank you baby @sanayairani for being so patient and calm and getting it done eventually. Thank you for making sure I didn’t have to shave my head by the end of this 😜. I love the haircut and this is the only haircut after which I could kiss my sexy hairdresser @sanayairani 😘. P.S. We have written to the Limca Book of records for this to be the longest time a haircut has ever taken. We are awaiting their revert 🤪. @sanayairani thank you baby 😘😘 I love u ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
