In the past month, my sweet sweet Bucky (Poss/ grand father) has started chemo treatments. Well, today we got the phone call that he has started to lose his hair! It made him a little sad, and then it made me sad that he was a little sad about it.
|Please note that Bucky is not a pirate nor does he normally dress in pirate garb (boots, skull and cross bones belt buckle, patch, bandana on head). He was kind enough to dress up as Cap'n Bucky the sweetest pirate to ever sail the oceans a blue for Sophia's 3rd birthday!|
Then, I started thinking of all of the bonuses about being bald. Let me share!
1. Save money on shampoo and conditioners! CHA-CHING!!
2. Think of all of the cool hats that you could be sporting?? (This would be where all of your shampoo and conditioner money would go to!)
3. You do not even have to fix your hair! Good-bye brushes, combs, and hair dryers!
4. You can ride around in a convertible (top down) and not even worry about your hair being messed up! Best day ever!!
5. You will probably not be getting lice when your bald (and if you do, you will not have a hard time finding them)!
6. You will not have to worry about high lights or picking out grey hairs!
7. Say good-bye to split ends!
So, those bonus reasons for being bald are sounding good, right??
Well, still not convinced that "Bald is Beautiful" or that "Bald is the New Black" or that "All the cool kids are doing it!"... let's check out some people who wear this look o-so well!
Really, Bruce Willis! Ummm, did you see him play John McClane in Die Hard?? I am pretty sure he fought off many terrorists and saved a whole lotta people in that high rise office building, on Christmas eve! Note to self: bald people are tough as nails!
Tele Savalas..... bald! He was Kojak for pittys sake!
Vin Diesel.... NO HAIR! He was super fast and furious in those car movies! FYI, no body messed with Dom in those shows!
Michael Jordan. Do you think he could have flown in the air to make a ba-jillion baskets with hair?? Ummm, I think not!
Okay, Homer Simpson. Well....uhhhh... well.. he does not... well, he's bald too.
Lord Voldemort. Trust me when I tell you that he was so happy when he did not have to make any more hair appointments... (he had been grey since he was in his early 20's. Such a shame)!
Britney Spears was wanting to go bald, but she did not have the right bone structure (she could not pull it off)! Don't worry, you have the perfect cheek bones for this look!
Dr Phil.... he has his own television show!! Do you think that Oprah would have liked him so much if he had a head full of hair???? NOOO!
Bond, James Bond.
Sigh..... he is so dreamy..
This man needs no introduction! He has a whole line of cleaning products (and those muscley arms)!
The Dali Lama
I have heard he just loves being able to jump out of his bed, jerk on his clothes, and go! He spends like zero time fixing his do!
James Carville has no hair!
The Great Yoda
"hair I have not...mmmmm"
Ron Howard, everyone loves Opie!
Andre Agassi, he is like a gold medalist and BALD!
Wha? Evander Holyfield.... no one is messing with this man. Notice nothing on top!!
Samuel L. Jackson... he made genetically enhanced sharks, fought snakes on a plane, and was using the force on an episode of Star Wars... think he coulda done all of that with super long locks???? Nope!
Now that I think about it, in that shark movie he may have had hair. He also killed off in that movie when he was eaten by a shark, but I believe that had he been bald, that shark would have totally swam off and left him alone! Just saying!
Long story Bucky. Losing your hair is no biggie. If this has to happen in order for you to kick cancers butt..... well, alrighty then! I know you can beat this!
