Today I was at my sister’s house in west Cobb. I saw an elderly slim man studying her
driveway. I walked our and asked could I
help him. He said he was studying her
driveway, the workmanship, how good it looked.
He is in the market to have a new driveway put in, his present one is
crumbling up.. He introduced himself, he
lives about 3 houses down the street. He
said he either needs to fix it up or move down by the coast. He said he was from south Georg but lived up
here many years.
He told me he was a Barber at Bob’s Barbershop on Canton
Road, now he is retired. I told him my
wife cuts my hair but the last time I had a store bought haircut was about a
week after the drunk young man’s head was accidentally sliced off in Bob’s
Barber Shop’s parking lot. We went over
what happened, he knew the details. Two
drunk young men left a rocking bar on Church Street Extension. On Canton Road the guy that wasn’t driving
put his head out the window to puke. The
driver pulled into Bob’s Barbershop Parking lot so, I suppose not to get vomit
on the side of car. The driver drove on
The next morning the police were knocking on his family’s
door. They told them a headless man was
in the front seat of the car.
They figured the head was sliced off when the driver got too
close to a pole’s guild-wire and was sliced off.
A uncanny story resurfaced.
