Why you don't make impulse decisions

Ok…so my lovely girlfriend Michaelyn pledged to get a mohawk if $1,000 was donated over 2 weeks last month.  You guys responded!

Well, she’s a woman of her word.

Well someone in the crowd asked how much it’d take for me to get a mohawk.  I said $500 donated to Reasonfest thinking it’d never happen.

I was wrong.

The things I do for this movement.

    JT, I have the strangest urge to give you a noogie the next time I see you. I have to admit, that look is adorable on the both of you!

    You both look great, although I will admit to being somewhat biased: I live on Capitol Hill in Seattle, where pretty much everyone has some variation of tattoos, piercings, non-traditional hair or dye-jobs. (FWIW, my own… ah, decorations are normally not visible to the public.) You guys look positively vanilla.

    You may want to consider treating the ‘hawks as fundraising tools. “I got it because people donated to some worthy causes. This month’s group is X, and we are only $Y away from goal; if we make it, I keep it for another month.”

    Whoa, she is totally rockin’ the ‘hawk, and you look pretty darn fine yourself! :-) I had a mohawk… oh man, 7 years ago now!… back in college. (NB, I’m a woman.) I really enjoyed it, and I still miss it sometimes. Enjoy it while you have it!
