Birthday Week Part 1: Steven gets a mohawk and I get a job

As you know, Steven and I were born two years and one day apart. Meaning that our relationship faces the trying hurtle of back to back birthdays. It’s really hard not having everything be all about me around my birthday, but SOMEHOW I persevere. This year was especially dramatic because Steven turned 30. And went through some kind of crisis of hair:

The sides of his head can feel the breeze for the first time since infancy

However, mohawk styling–or really, any styling–isn’t an inborn skill. It’s taken lots of practice.

He actually owned more haircare products than me before this too.

Again, it was actually always him.

Isn't perfection worth it, though?

He also had a concert two days before his birthday, the perfect occasion to debut an awesome new hair:

I also noticed him getting a lot more compliments from people in the audience during intermission and after, maybe because he stands out way more now.

He just wants attention
