I'm with Faye, I've rarely used scissors and couldn't without it looking like a hack job lol! Mine all get introduced to clippers as weanlings so I never have to worry about it. If you don't have clippers, I would consider a razor comb (like a hairstylist uses to create layers) and slowly razor it out, it wouldn't be as blunt of a cut as you would get from standard scissors.
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
