A rite of passage at Cole & Pickett Barber Shop

Hunter Durham writes:
When i was young and in high schoolm i kept asking Mr. Cole and Mr. Pickett when i could shave. One day Mr. Cole said, "Today's the day," and Mr. Pickett went to G & M Grill and got a cigar. Mr. Cole heated a towel and put it around my face and then put the cigar in my mouth and lit the ciigar; and there i sat with a lit cigar and and he then put the razor to the strapp, put shaving cream on my face and gave me a shave. I bet it had a least 3 hairs and I continued to smoke the cigar and enter into manhood. - Hunter durham
