I was on line at the pub yesterday and when it was time to get served I wasn't paying attention, and the bar maid said in a very loud tone, hey you "blindy mate", what'll ya have.
That not only got my attention, but the attention of all the other patrons of the establishment. Mad

Today I overheard this little kid say to his parent, "look at that man mommy, he has no hair".
The mother's reply, "he shaves his head". The kid asked, "why does he shave his hair".
Mothers reply, "it's hot and probably he thinks he looks cooler that way"!????

Why would a grown man care what a child says. No

I get more negative reactions when I explain how I shave my head with a razor, than I do to the shaved head itself. "You actually drag a razor across your scalp?" Yes, sir or maam, I do.

Yesterday a woman I work with asked me how often I shave my head and if I use a straight-edge razor or an electric one. She can be fairly negative and I expected to get a "that's dumb" on my reply, but she surprised me by saying her boyfriend just shaved his head for the first time with an electric razor and she's trying to get him to do it now with a straight-edge. Two other women overheard us talking and chimed in that they think it's great for a guy to completely shave his head. I wasn't expecting the conversation at all from any of them and was a bit surprised to have them all standing around me looking at and talking about my head. When I was still sporting a short buzz cut, I was still sensitive about my baldness, but once again this reminded me of the freedom I've gained by shaving my head.

We should be happy we live in a time when baldness is embraced by the mainstream. It's always good to hear (hair Cool unexpected compliments, and yes, of course, a blade yields a closer shave than an electric. Hope your brief chat got the gent to switch shaving techniques.

Now that the door has been opened, I'll keep checking in with her to see if he's gone straight-edge yet. I agree, it's great that baldness is embraced by the mainstream. I wish it had been when I first started losing my hair, but on the other hand my experiences may have made me a stronger man, so it's all good.

To the casual onlooker, there's no difference between a razored or electric headshave. I rotate daily between the two, but my wife prefers me to use a straight edge for special occasions and meetings.

Like with many of life's experiences, you don't really know or see the benefit until you can look back and reflect on it.

I look at it this way. Things, the good, and not-so good, happen over a life-time for a reason. We learn from those experiences and improve one's life by moving toward the positive.
