I shaved my head tonight.

I'm not sure why, except that I'm losing my hair anyway and tonight seemed like as good a night as any. So I scalped myself. It feels really good and I don't think that I look appreciably more ridiculous than I did before. Hrrrmmmm.

I went Brazilian, baby. I know how you likes that.

I'd make fun of you, but, well....I've kind of always wanted to shave my head too.

But I need to keep as much facial hair to cover up as much of my face as possible and I haven't figured out how to make that work.

I have that same issue... the more of my face that's covered up, the better, so I beard it up. I left the beard alone. It just stops abruptly at the top of my ears.

I haven't decided if I'm going to keep it this way or not. I think it looks okay, and it feels really good, but somewhat surprisingly, being bald is a lot of fucking work. Maybe I'll go back to just using the clippers and keeping it really damn short. I fear may be too lazy for this.

A lot of work? I think you're doing it wrong. They make chemicals that cause you to loose your hair. Of course, you might want to get a murkin and the beard equivalent first.

I too have thought of going completely hairless. But right now I am still exploring the wide world of pontytails.

When I had long hair, I always thought shorter would be easier. Except for drying time, short hair is so much more work. Shaved must be a pain in the ass. Should have gone Mr. T on that shit.

Every person that walked by his cube today asked him about his newly bald head. It's almost like car wax. :)

The Taco Prophet said...

Damn the missed opportunity! I could have asked him what was the best kind of wax to use!

Welcome, brother.

I tried not to groan out loud each time they asked you about it. "Now, did you do that with a RAZOR?"

Yes, a motorola RAZR even! Jackass.

The Taco Prophet said...

"Nope. I had to sneeze and pinched my nose. The resulting blast blew every hair out. Damnedest thing."

Bluejeangirl said...

You crack me up. :)

My father always used to say that real men don't shave, they just pound the hairs to the insides of their cheeks with a hammer and chew them off.

I had a great uncle who would pull open his collar, point out his chest hair, and explain that he hadn't gone bald, but rather, had hit such a violent growth spurt when he was 16 that he'd grown straight through his hair.
