That, but Aziraphale is unconsciously growing his hair and his barber just being super chill and going along with it. He’s just accepted that Aziraphale just doesn’t make any sense and probably isn’t human anyway.
So I’ve been thinking about Good Omens (shocker, I know) and it’s established that Aziraphale has a barber. But like his hair is always the same length? I’ve seen it suggested that the barber just pretends to cut his hair, as it’s more of a social thing than an actual necessity. But I would like suggest a sort of Stardust-esque scene. You know the bit where Captain Shakespeare cuts Tristan’s hair but at one point it’s even longer than when he began?
My mother: why don’t you spend more time with your dad?
my dad: *has Fox News on almost everyday, uses a term for intellectual disability to mean dumb like this is the early 2000s all over again, and cannot see an lgbt couple on tv without remarking on how it’s “wrong”*
Me the closeted bi, who tries to get my dad to see that these behaviors are problematic and is ignored: *looks into the camera like I’m Jim on The Office*
My mother thought the two characters were having two completely different conversations, but my dad had no idea either character was talking about sexuality. It wasn’t particularly subtle subtext, if you can even call it that. But it sure escaped their comprehension.
It kind of boggles my mind how much queer subtext goes over straight people’s heads. Or maybe how much I’ve started to notice. My parents have been watching schitt’s creek and there is a discussion between two characters about sexuality that uses wine as an extended metaphor. Like the straight character “prefers red wine” but the pansexual character “likes wine not the label”
