Talking to my brother in the living room.
Me: "Nice haircut. [looking at it] Are you no longer spiking it in the front?"
Tom: "I usually do, but I didn't today."
Me: "Oh, I like it this way. This says 'I'm a casual guy.' When you spike it, the message is, 'I'm a high-maintenance metrosexual."
Tom: "I better spike it then! Wouldn't want to give the wrong idea."
