And you actually did get it cut
  1. Say "yes, I did."
  2. Do not say: "No, I got my ears lowered"
  3. Do not say: "No, I got them all cut!"
  4. Do not say: "No, I dyed the tips invisible."
  5. Do not say: "No, it was stolen."
  6. If you care, ask if they like it.
  7. This is all you need to do. Seriously.
