Top 15 Reasons Why Bald is Better

1.  When someone asks me a question I don’t know the answer to I can answer, “I have no hairy idea” and mean it!

2.  I can walk out of the house without worrying about fixing my hair.

3.  I use a lot less hair product, hence, baldness is a money saver and I’m never blamed for using up the shampoo.

4.  I am always on the “cutting edge”.  (At least I think I am)

5.  I can always be a “head” of the other guy.

6.  I don’t have to worry about getting lice.

7.  I can use the joke about how smart I am since “grass doesn’t grow on a busy highway”. (that was my Dad’s joke – don’t blame me)

8.  I fit in with the old men. (Wait – I don’t know how that is a benefit…)

9.  People easily see what is on my mind.

10.  I never suffer from hat-head or bed-head.

11.  People are more likely to take me bowling (if you get this one – you are showing your age)

12.  I am much more aerodynamic when walking.

13.  No one tells me what “hair-brained” ideas I have anymore!

14.  I am really good at “bald”er dash!

15.   I can attack things head-first and not worry about the fall-out.

(Bonus:  16.  No one knows I have grey hair!)

(In retrospect:  I really look like my Dad now!)

About inmycorner

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.
