Nua bearradh gruaige.

Fuair mé bearradh gruaige Dé hAoine seo caite. Bhí mian liom air. Faighim sé gach sa dhá mhí. Gheobhaidh mo gruaige níos fada, mar sin caithim ag dul ar an bearbóir áitiúil.

Ach, bhí an íoc ar an gruagaire mar ar dhulta ar feadh geall le scór blianta go bhfuil is costasúil anois. Níl mé ábalta a tiomaint ar fud timpeall an cathair agus go leor a chailleadh ar chor ar bith. Ní maith liom faoi sos dó. Mar sin féin, tosaíonn muid airgead a chur i dtaisce níos mó go deireanach. Is cosuil dúil leis ár tír ann!

Tá gruaige agam is gearr. Ní raibh ag gearrtha is faobhrach riamh go dtí sin é. Is radharc é go dona, b'fheídir. Is cabhair é leis taisleach. Tá aimsir go bhfuil teas ar seachtaine seo.

Ní fhaca mé amharc sa scáthán ina síopa. Bhí lá deireanach ann. D'imigh an síopa ar fiar ar théann thart faoi an coirnéal ansin. Ar ndóigh, ní chonaic mé rud eile go bhfuil a tharla nuair go fáil bearradh gruaige agam féin. Is mian liom mo spéaclái sróine.

Is cuimhne liom faoi athbliain Ghuidach. Tosoidh muid atosú! Tá ceann níos ramhar. Ta sé ag dul i gcósulacht le arán dubh mór. Ina dhiadh sin, d'inis Léna orm go mbeadh is fearr oraibh ná mbheidh mé ag fáil eígin céann ar an nós sin aríst. Is fearr linn beirt a gruaige níos fada a glacadh de rogha ar gruaige nios gearr.

A New Haircut.

My hair's much shorter. It wasn't cut so sharp before now. It's a bold look, perhaps. It's a help with the humidity. The weather's been warm this week.

I got a haircut this past Friday. I needed it. I get it every two months. My hair will get longer, so I must go to the local barber.

But, the cost at the hair-stylist where I have gone during nearly a score of years is too expensive now. I'm not able to drive all the way across the city and to go to great expense anymore. I don't like the break-off from him. Nevertheless, we're starting to save money more lately. It's the same desire within our country!

I didn't see a look in the mirror of the shop. It was the last day there. The shop was moving diagonally around the corner there. Of course, I didn't see anything that was happening when I got my haircut. I need my eyeglasses.

It reminds me of the Jewish New Year. We're starting afresh. I have a rounder head. It resembles the holiday's great brown challah. All the same, Layne told me that it'd be best for us if I will not get the same style again. The pair of us both prefer longer hair to shorter hair.
