"New Man!"

Just a stray observation. My barber has a few stock phrases he uses over and over. Usually, there's not much of a queue, so you only hear things once or twice, but this morning, a lot of people were getting cleaned up for the holiday or something. The first stock phrase, said as he whips off the drape and holds up the mirror so you can see the back of your head, is "New Man!" The other, said when he's ready to tilt the chair back up after giving someone a shave, is "Time to wake up!" Both are said with a bit of a shout and a smile.
