Ugh, stop twitching
hair care stories
life Posted 2011-03-27 19:20:07 by Jim Crawford
When Tim, Mike and I moved to Truckee for three months at the end of 2004 to make video games together, one of the first tasks we took care of was some serious grocery shopping. When I was picking out hair care products, Tim noticed that I was more or less choosing at random and mentioned that he was surprised that someone with hair like mine didn't have a preferred brand.

It took me a moment to absorb this. It had never occurred to me that I could have a hair care brand preference, but I almost immediately realized that I did, a brand I liked significantly more than the crap I kept trying. I just hadn't realized it at a conscious enough level for it to affect my purchasing decisions.

One of many ways working with Tim improved my life. Thanks, Tim!
