For years now, I’ve wondered what the exact shape of my head is. The only way to find out was to take off all the hair and go BALD…. which I did on the 5th of May 2010. Yippee…. finally I know!!
OK, its wasn’t so much the shape that I wondered about, but maybe a combination of a few things… how would it be to wake up in the morning and not have to comb or shampoo all that hair? How would a bald head feel to my own hands, would I look weird or good or just OK? Is my head symmetrical or bumpy? Could I just get up and DO IT??
Turns out I could, and I don’t look so bad. The shape of my head is nice from the front, the back is a little flat and it would have been nicer had it been a wee bit more egg shaped… but never mind… there are no bumps and I am completely symmetrical!!
Have had all sorts of reactions so far, some good, some not so good! My mom kept laughing and saying she doesn’t want to talk to me, but she did eventually. My dad called and said “Hello beautiful stranger”, my husband loves it and has even more adoring sparks in his eyes, my younger daughter shuts her eyes whenever she sees me, the older one hasn’t seen me yet, but says I’m mad! A few friends who’ve seen me so far think it looks great… even stunning! So far so good… no one’s made me feel lousy about it just yet, other than Anya, who’s coming around and has started to reach out for my bald head and feel it once in a while. Mostly she keeps shaking her head and saying “My Mom is bald, I don’t believe it!”
So far, great feeling…. maybe when the novelty of a bald head wears off, I’ll start missing my long, beautiful hair.
For now, I feel bald, bold and beautiful!!!!
