Countdown to the head shavingJuly 5, 2007
In the lifelong battle between me & the hair on my head, I’ve been threatening to use the nuclear option for many years, but I think today’s the day I finally do it. The twin demons that have restrained me in the past are 1) fear that I will look like a neo-nazi, and 2) self-consciousness about my uniquely shaped noggin. I’ve come VERY close on occasion, but at the last minute, the barber, sensing my trepidation has left just enough hair to qualify as a scalp covering. Well no more, do you hear me?!? This is the day. Perhaps I’m drunk on the false bravado of knowing that the feds didn’t come get me for the prior post, or perhaps this is all just bluster & I will chicken out yet again, but as of this moment, the intention is to get the full monty. Say goodbye, rich, lustrous & cowlick ridden locks, these are your final hours haunting my glorious mis-shapen skull!!!
