A common diversion among some friends of mine is to offer unsolicited opinions over whether the time has come for me to end my scalp's recession and just start shaving my head. A friend who had been identified with the idea of my not just shaving my head but using laser hair removal to do it recently sent me this photo that she had taken of me. She said the photo provided a good idea of what I would look like with a shaved head and, on the basis of it, she had changed her mind and I shouldn't do it. Which was good of her to express her opinion, although it's not like shaving my head was an alternative or fall back option, but rather something I am presuming I'll feel compelled toward sooner or later, albeit preferably later.
All this just reinforces the idea that what I should really do is disappear for a year and come back with a giant thick curly head of hair and a plummy British accent. You think I'm joking.
