Who would have thought … I look sexy in a buzz cut!

By | Fri July 18, 2014

Today was the trip to the really nice lady who volunteers to shave heads for those who are going through chemotherapy. We decided we needed a before picture – as Scott was also going to get his head shaved (in part in solidarity, but more because he needed a haircut).

Afterwards, Mom and I went shopping. I started out wearing the head scarf but soon found myself feeling just fine without it. I was especially amused with the feel of the wind on my head with the windows open in the car (usually it drives me nuts to have the windows open as my hair flies everywhere). Then I discovered my shadow, which is very odd looking and still catches me by surprise.

There are so many new sensations – it is amazing. Even a task as simple at putting on a t-shirt feels completely different. I’m looking forward to tomorrow mornings swim and shower!

Now I just need to get a few nice pairs of dangly earrings (I welcome donations/gifts). I don’t normally wear earrings, but long dangly earrings suddenly help me dress up nice. I was never really big on fashion, and now I find myself buying a bunch of nice clothes so I have something fancy to wear to various appointments and meetings.

Definitely feeling good today :-)

    Your smile definitely looks bigger and I think a hat that sits well above your ears to compliment the shape of your head. Like a rooster’s comb, not like frosting on a cupcake though. Or maybe a tiara? Be sure not to burn your ears in the sun, years of roofing taught me that.

      You guys really look cool. Just think you will be able to go 2 miles per hour fast on your bikes due to less drag .
      Take care remember the sun screen.

    You both look like two very cool Forest Thai monastics and I agree Becky, that your smiles are both so radiant. This is what faces are obviously designed for : )
