The Weird and Wonderful World of TEFL # 23

I used to get a shave and a haircut every month from an old man called Tassos. I watched his skin turn slowly yellow. When I could talk a little, he showed me a business card. It was dog-eared. 1967. President Lyndon B Johnson. He had cut the President's hair. That was the highlight of his life. Tassos died in April, 1993. His shop closed down, then reopened a few weeks later, selling ballet shoes.
