Heredity

by Chris Sorrenti


like my father before me
and his father before him
the tiny bald spot
on the back of the crown of my head
grows steadily larger
with each passing year

and the funny part about it is
I really don't care

Yeah for you. Most of the time that bald spot bothers you guys much more than it bothers the women who love you. I'm glad it doesn't bother you.

Ha, you just have a little spot - I have an ocean of skin up there. I don't know for sure, but I think one aspect of maturity (such an ostentacious word) is the ability to concentrate on the really important and to ignore the superficial. Fun read.

...when your bald, the funny "part" is....there are no longer ANY parts, funny or not!

I think John Hiatt wrote a song in which he refers to it as a "solar sex panel". Think of it in those terms! Good read.... d:-)

great piece! yeah, my hubby's been balding since his late 20's, and i love him just the same! i'm glad it doesn't bother you - all he ever says is that he misses his hair...

Neat commentary on going bald! Join the crowd! I just think of all the money I have saved in haircuts! LOL!! I am amused at some of the hair restoration ads. You'd think going bald was some kind of major calamity! LOL!!
