Bald

Nora has the camera with her, and I won't get all the fun pics of the shaving itself until I go back to work on Monday...so, here's the best I can do with the cell phone camera:





Anyone wants to rub it for good luck, that'll be $5.

Today was the last day of the ILEETA conference, and on the last day of the conference they run the "Flatfoot 5k" to raise money for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. Last year I made the mistake of starting off way too fast, trying to keep up with one of our fit officers who is 20 years younger than I am. I ran well (for me) for the first two miles and then flamed out. I didn't even finish. This year I ran slower, and while it was a really slow race for me, at least I finished it running. Albeit like I was carrying a refrigerator up a driveway. I kept reaching up to brush the hair out of my face, before realizing I didn't have any. I suspect that I am slower without the Elvis hair.

Hope y'all have a great weekend!

You have a great weekend, too! At least the exercising part of it is over now, I hope???

Oh, and my donation has been donated. Farewell, Elvis hair!

Nice head, dude. Word.

Loved your performance in THX-1138.

SkylersDad said...

Well done Bubs, good work on the head and the run both!

Loved your performance in THX-1138. Ha!

Indeed, nice chrome dome. It'll probably help you at work. A bald pate can make even the most low-key dude look a little more dangerous.

You've actually got a really nice head - no weird bumps or anything. You can pull this off, dude.

May need to start therapy for that phantom hair syndrome though.

Katie Schwartz said...

You look awesome. Congratulations on the run -- you finished, you did it. You're a mensch.

I will be making a donation to your cause (FYI).

Bubs, you're a handsome brute without hair. I'm glad you finished the run. Slow and steady wins the race - well, not "wins" in your case, but "finishes" anyway.

As Barbara said, you have a nicely shaped head.

Does the $5. include shipping and handling?

I shaved my legs the other day, and I've only been getting $.05 a pop. I think I need to re-evaluate my pricing strategy.

Dude - they say it will grow back thicker and curlier.

Oh, wait. that's your head.

Never mind,

you have the perfect head to be bald.....

Wren said...

Very nice, baldy. Try out some snarls and mean looks in your mirror -- bet they'll work on the bad guys. Don't scare yourself, though. Oh -- and maybe get yourself one of those stick-on tats for the back of your head. A skull and crossbones, maybe?

Good job, Bubs. ;o)

Erik Donald France said...

Wild -- you did it. You really did it. Oorah!

Gifted Typist said...

You gotta good head on them shoulders, bubs

Watch out MizBubs, you know my affinity towards bald men!

Dale said...

I could never do that, my head is freakishly large and most likely bumpy. Congratulations on your streamlined success!
