The sideswipe

February 21, 2013

I started wearing my hair pretty short about a year ago. I realized that a guy can only do a comb over so long 😮 It is just the way it is… I am going bald.

I am not a vain person. Baldness doesn’t bother me … getting old does, a little bit … but I can’t stop that either. I will not get hair plugs, hair extensions or a toupee. So the next best option for me, was to start wearing it short and embracing my extended face 😮

Last night, I sat down to get a haircut. Connie had the clippers all ready and made a big swipe up the side of my head. I heard her gasp, cover the spot where the clippers had just been with her hand and exclaim… “Oops, sorry honey!” She had forgotten to put the little plastic depth gauge on the clipper head.

We laughed a bit, especially when I said, use the shortest gauge we have and it will blend in. She was bent over with laughter trying to tell me that there was no such thing as “blending in.” There was NO hair.

I am sporting a much shorter hairdo than normal. The shortness also revealed a few other places where hair has taken a vacation and is not home! I doubt that it will return. Connie was the most bothered because her mistake occured in the winter … no big deal, I’ll just wear a different hat …. for quite awhile 😮
