Throat Blog — Sick Hair

I stopped shaving my head back last September. Grew a fairly long (for me) fringe. But, my hair is so fine, it tends to drift up and down with wind, static electricity, or improper thoughts. I suppose I could put some hair gel on it, but not fond of the greasy look (or feel). So, Tuesday I shaved it all off.

Between Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning that is all I did. But, since then people who have seen me frequently during treatments suddenly started telling me how much healthier I looked. At first I really couldn't figure out wh,y all of a sudden, I started getting that comment. And, it wasn't just one or two people. It was several people in different departments at UTSW, several people at my office…

Then I realized…hair makes me look sick. Not like badass "Dude, that is one sick set of wheels!" sick. More like "Maybe you should go lie down for a while" sick.

So, I'm back to a smooth, healthier-looking pate.
