When I showed up at the restaurant this afternoon to meet my father for lunch, he didn't say "Hello."
He said, "Nice comb-over."
Okay, now...wait a second. I know I'm a little thin right up front. It's kind of fluffy. But this is not a comb-over. And my hair has not changed since I was 23. That year, suddenly my hair got a LOT thinner, and I was pretty worried. But then it stopped, and my hair has looked exactly the same for eleven years.
Still, I've been thinking: maybe it's time to shave it. Just to see. What do you think?
I won't do it for at least a couple of weeks, after my stepfather's memorial.
