My barber, Damien, never talks to me. Today he said, in his thick Italian accent:
"How old you?"
"Forty-four," I said.
"How long you been coming here?"
"Since it was Sal's. More than twenty years."
Then he pointed out my first strands of gray hair. "Can you fix that?" I asked.
He laughed. "Impossibile."
