Oh damn! There is no two ways to look at it. I am bald! I’ve known it for a while but I always seem to forget it or not accept it at some level. But I can’t deny it anymore or feign ignorance. I am bald. I have hair on my head but there’s a big bald spot on the back of my head and my front hairline is receding badly. I usually like to grow my hair a bit and only cut my hair once every 2.5-3 months and that way my bald spot isn’t very glaringly noticeable. Not after today.
Today after a long gap of 3 months I went to get my hair cut. Unfortunately I have not found a new barber shop or saloon despite my declaration after my last hair cut (please read here) and I had to go to the same place that I have gone to for the last 4 times and with each time a new barber, to whom I have to repeat my instruction on how to cut my hair in the safest way possible to not screw up the baldness terribly.
After today’s hair cut – yes the new guy is terrible and it just feels & looks awful – my balding forehead and top/back of my head is quite prominent. I can’t do much about it so I have to resign myself to the fact that I am bald and will so be completely so, somewhere in my 40s, which is only 2 years and 7 months away. Someday before that I hope to be daring enough to take razor to head and just shave the whole crop off and let it breathe! That – and or perhaps a wig, weave – are the only things I can do!
