I thought the word agroof was used to describe the headboard. Like when you wake up and your hair is on end, it can be described as “agroof”. But that’s not right. Agroof means you are “face down” as if the person is “agroof” or flat on their face. Maybe if you’re a stomach sleeper and your hair is messy, you could use that term.

Unless you’ve secured an appointment during the short opening hours of salons and barbers (with caution), you’re probably feeling a bit unkempt. I understand that the Governor is open to certain personal services being permitted outside.

Another name for the headboard is the moptop, which can come with a face covering, when you get imprints of your bedding on your face after a good sleep.

I would like to abolish the whole idea of ​​a bad hair day. Can we just agree to do this? And I would like to respect those who lack hair for whatever reason. I haven’t had my hair cut since January 6th. I decided to let it grow and endure.

There are spikes, and these occur naturally when certain hairs grow in a different direction. Luckily for me, Ken Eichstaedt’s hair is a complex collection of strands – and therefore very forgiving to cut, even with borrowed clippers. Not to be confused with dog licks. Waylon has the perfect hairstyle and never needs to cut it. Let’s hear it for the fur!

Self-styling is one thing. I recently saw an acquaintance I hadn’t seen in months. Her hair was really beautiful and she wears it very short. After complimenting her, I learned that the first two attempts at cutting her hair didn’t go well (shaved bald spots, etc.), but they did push through and she’s since mastered her look.

So I write about shaggy hair in an attempt at levity. While a laugh or a good gut laugh is so welcome right now, there’s not much to scoff at these days. Seriously, KWMR works hard to bring you relevant programming, including our Monday-Thursday “Epicenter” programs and other special interviews on health, racial justice and fire safety, to name a few. . Additionally, our programmers seek out timely interviews with authors, artists, environmentalists and elected officials.

Thank you for your calls, notes and emails about programming and our efforts here at KWMR. And for your support. Yesterday was the 20th, and the recurring donations from the Calendar Club arrived – a lifeline for the radio station. If you haven’t supported KWMR in a while, today is a good day to contribute.

And for what it’s worth, I hate confidence drops, so I don’t miss them at all.

If you have any questions about what 6′ apart means, here is a list of famous people who are 6′ tall. Just imagine they’re lying on the floor between you and the others: Bruce Springsteen, Brooke Shields, Dave Chappelle, Aimee Mann, Dave Grohl, Maya Angelou, Macy Gray and Bill Nye.

You know the drill – cover face, wash hands, sanitize and repeat,
Thank you all for reading, listening and supporting KWMR Community Radio.

Amanda Eichstaedt, Station Manager and Executive Director
