Yep, pretty grim! It got better - not a lot! That's why I was unafraid of telling you about it, as NOBODY would recognise me from that! No HBM needed!!
I had a (better!) set when I met the current Mrs S-B, but I was bored with it (the set, not potential Mrs S-B!)
She had long hair and was bored with it too. So a pact was made - I'd shave off, she'd get her hair chopped and we'd meet up and go out for a meal to celebrate our new looks.
One skin matelot and a long haired pash went out that night....... Yep, she welched on the deal!
