I recently got an email from a friend who is shaving his head as a part of a cancer fund raiser. It reminded me of the time I did that. More or less on a whim actually. I had friends participating in the big head shave (one of whom had hair down to her bum at the time) and I had thought to myself before "why aren't I doing this?" So I decided the day of the event "If I can raise $200 in the next 20 minutes, I'll do it" and I did, so off with my hair. (i ended up raising another $500 or so in the week to follow)
So there I was...Bald. The phone call to my then boyfriend was pretty priceless. It went something like this I think:
"So.....guess what I did today..."
"I shaved my head..."
"Yup....I shaved my head...I'm bald"
"uuuuhhhhh.....ummmmmm.....bald? as in no hair?"
Good time had by all really. Though the growing out process wasn't entirely fun...
