As I was getting my hair cut this morning on West 72nd Street, we were interrupted by a loud commotion outside. Police sirens and shouting. It turns out a woman had just successfully given birth in the doorway next to the hair salon! Some of the stylists saw the baby actually arrive in the world while I saw the baby in a carrier and the happy mother being wheeled away into an ambulance, smiling.
After the excitement, all of us returned to our chairs where I loudly wondered how that woman’s hair still looked so great after giving birth outside like that.
The other customers laughed while the stylists showed us.
