Mr. Obama’s graying is still of the flecked variety, and appears to wax and wane depending on when he gets his hair cut, which he does about every two weeks.The waxing and the waning of the flecks!
His barber, who goes by only one name, Zariff, takes umbrage with bloggers who alternately claim Mr. Obama, 47, is dyeing his hair gray (to appear more distinguished) or dyeing it black (to appear younger). “I can tell you that his hair is 100 percent natural,” Zariff said. “He wouldn’t get it colored.”A barber taking umbrage — umbrage with the bloggers. Zariff the barber takes umbrage with the bloggers for writing something I was just about to write. But I will not. I choose not to provoke the umbrage-taking barber they call Zariff.
And for all of his 16 years giving Mr. Obama his “quo vadis” haircut — black parlance from the 1960s for close-cut locks — Zariff said he is not about to start ribbing Mr. Obama. “We do not tease about the gray at all,” he said.Quo vadis... parlance... Zariff... ribbing... I love the way this article is flecked with amusing words, these words that wax and wane. And I will not tease about the gray. Nor will I tease about the ears or anything else about the head of President.
There is still nothing I see that is not perfection...
