Typho: Close Shave

Bantha Challenge
Originally uploaded by Captain Typho.
I think I have an honest chance of winning this challenge. Not that I know anything about banthas, but as a kid I did have a dog with a lot of hair that my dad was too cheap to send to the groomers, so I had to take care of it. I learned to use clippers on the dog with varying degrees of success. I used the clippers once on my dad too. He was asleep at the time. To say that he was upset when he woke up is a bit of an understatement.

Anyway, since I'm not getting these banthas ready for the show ring, I should be good to go.

I chose a slow, elderly bantha lagging at the back of the herd. It responded to my offering of food and the shearing began. It got away from me a couple times, but more offerings of food calmed it down and brought it back.

Eventually, the task was done.

When I looked up, some others had finished also. I was so much in the zone, I'm not sure who finished first.

Crossing my fingers...

It's good to have something to fall back on if this security guard gig doesn't work out. ;)
