    It seems I've accepted it

    Hair loss, that is.

    As a kid, I learned to come out of the water with my head tilted back, so the wet hair went backwards. Even after my hair got thin enough that it wasn't a problem, I still found myself doing that. This year I find I just come straight up.

    I guess my subconscious mind must have finally accepted that I'm bald.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Don't think of it as baldness, think of it as "folicular migration". I am sure that as hair as retreated from your scalp it has sought new ground elsewhere!

    Just take hair from elsewhere and duct tape it up there, that stuff can fix anything!

    At least you don't have to worry about haircuts, mine grows so fast I need to cut it every two weeks!

    I have alopecia... so mine comes and goes in big circular patches that my kids refer to as my "crop circles". I just wish it would make up its mind... bald or not!

    I keep wondering when Sports Clips is going to charge me an extra buck or two for my "neck trim".

    Baldness doesn't run in either side of my family, so I'll most likely be 70 with a full head of hair!

    Just tell them there's less to do with your head, so the neck should offset the cost!
