This afternoon’s development

Well, this morning I woke up, and my hair seemed all in place…  tightly locked into my scalp…  Even had helmet head when I got to the office, so I wet my buzz cut and rubbed it out…. All was good – nothing exciting in terms of hairs straying from their rightful places.  Then, this afternoon, I reach up… and Viola!  I’m losing my hair.  AND SOME!  Man – I thought it’d be slower.  But just clump after clump after clump.  Almost to the minute, 48 hours after the third cycle.

So – presenting – Lee’s bald head.

I decided I’m not so keen on the patchy look, so I pulled out the clippers, and Cheryl helped me make sure I have an even cut.  So, there you have it.  I’m pretty much bald now.  The slight variation in shading is the difference between areas that have already lost a bunch of hair… and areas that have not.  Wow – that was fast.

Probably, I’ll wear little hats and stuff.  I have some head sweats, an excellent skulls cap, a chili pepper head sweat, some buffs, and a hand-made F*CK CANCER hat…
