Throwing In The Towel

Well, there goes two months of hard fought effort!

Since way back on my B.Day in November I had but one goal...and now it's over...forever.

My goal was simple, at least on paper...grow hair while I still can!

I didn't cut my hair for over two full months, and overall it seemed to grow fairly rapidly and was very encouraging for quite sometime. Then the realization just a few short days ago, that no matter how 'hard I try', my hair is too damn thin to be viewed as anything other then a guy who's afraid of going bald!

I've been shaving my head for the better part of the last decade, with a few hair spurts thrown in from time to time, so I have no issue with 'being bald'...it's just the finality of it all that hurts I guess.

Good bye my precious, until we meet again, perhaps in another life time.

I'll be ok, no really, I don't need to be consoled here people, just go about your normal day to day living...looking in the mirror morning after morning and fully taking for granted that YOU have hair while people like me are struggling just to maintain my core temperature without any insulation working for me.

Not to worry, I was able to salvage just enough hair to make at least one style work for me...

(Yeah, I'm bad...)

You are amusing. Hey, at least its easy to care for. Pfft, after a run I gotta wash,condition,blowdry and flatiron my hair before I can goto work...what a waste of valuable time. Unfortunately, I wouldn't look good bald.
