It’s confession time:
I have a bald spot.
I’ve had it for a long time. It’s mine, & it’s going nowhere!
Well, OK: it’s probably going outwards. A bit. Maybe.
It’s not exactly uncommon; I see it in a lot of men.
That doesn’t mean I have to be happy about it though.
Yes, I’ve tried that regain stuff: it didn’t work & it left a stain on the pillow. So not only was I unhappy with it but my wife wasn’t too thrilled either.
The thing is, from the front you can’t see it. So as most mirrors I look in show me front on, when I view my ugly mug there I look up top & think “Yes, what a fine head of hair!”. Conveniently forgetting that’s there a big patch of skin back there out of sight.
I do find though that there’s nothing like being outside in the rain without a brolly to jog my memory….
So the other day Jake was sitting on the arm of the sofa, next to me.
Looking down on my head.
“Daddy, why have you got a hole in your head?”
Yes, Jake: thank you for the reminder.
I explained as best as I could.
“So when I’m bigger I’ll have a hole in my head like you Daddy?”
“Yes, Jake: you might.”
He actually seemed pleased about it!
Ah, the innocence of youth….
