Things I love about a shaved head …
I find myself wondering if I will enjoy this as much when I’m bald as I am now? I am thankful that I look good with a shaved head. I go out without covering it – only covering it up when I’m out in the sun so that I don’t get a sunburn. With nothing on, it feels like I’m wearing a hat all the time – the thin layer of hair seems to have the same sensation as wearing a tight skull cap.
As I mentioned previously, I am enjoying the feeling of the wind in my hair when I am in the car with the windows rolled down. I almost want to stick my head out the window like a puppy dog! Unfortunately, I cannot stand the sounds of other cars, so this pleasure is reserved for when I’m driving on the back roads or side streets.
I find myself petting myself (rubbing my hand down the back of my head). The feeling never gets old – I catch myself doing it when stopped at a red light waiting for the light to change. I’ve also discovered that I love the feel of the cold water on my head when I first jump into the shower after swimming (it takes a good 5 minutes for our hot water to reach the ensuite bathroom). I used to make Scott shower first, as the cold water didn’t bother him – now I’m finding that I enjoy it so much that I jump in first!
And of course, it’s a lot of fun when Scott pets me too 🙂
