The Bear presents CLOSE SHAVE: hairy stories

Storytellers explore the theme, sometimes in the most unexpected ways. Here are some triggers to spark your creative juices. Viel Spass!

His stubborness makes me want to pull my hair out; We split hairs every time we plan a vacation; Going way to college, put hair on my chest; I wanted to keep her out of my hair, so I just gave her my credit card; My hair is standing on end as I watch the car's front wheel dangle over the cliff edge; It's my last night as a bachelor, so I decided to let my hair down; I haven’t seen hide nor hair of my father since my parents' divorce 33 years ago; Just the thought of a robber going through my closet makes my hair curl; I got out of the car just before it blew up, escaping death by a hair's breadth; Our new boss looked like he couldn’t harm a hair on someone’s head, but oh, was I wrong; I had 10 minutes to get to the departure gate and my hair was on fire; When I opened the letter, I didn't get hysterical or blow up, but it was a close shave; That was a close call - my mom almost saw us climb out the window; he liked my hair long, so I cut it short;

Every gray hair tells a story.

Tell us your 7-min tales about narrow escapes, near collisions, and bad hair days.
