Having read an interesting little blog about hair loss and the bad language it causes, got me to wondering. If bald men don't get so much as a second glance, why is it so bad for a woman to be bald? One day this will be the norm anyway as the centuries roll on. You only have to look back a few thousand years to see how much hairier our ancestors were. I never heard of a cavewoman who made a fuss about losing any or a caveman grooming himself with duckfat brylcream to hide his bald spots.If they weren't worried, why should we be with much less hair to worry about? Maybe they just didn't have mirrors or died of the cold. My neighbour Archie Pelago is called just that because his hair is so thinly spread on his head it resembles a scattering of islands in a sea of scalp.It doesn't bother him one bit although I've been told he sleeps in a balaclava. I'm pretty sure it will be fashionable one day for both men and women to be bald and hair will be considered an unsightly throwback to our primitive past that caused untold misery to countless despairing mortals who just because they were follically challenged thought that this somehow made them a lesser person than the vain sun-tanned hairball in number 15 who spends more time in front of a mirror than a finalist on Come Dancing. So all you RA folks and that includes me, let's stop worrying too much about hair and if that's impossible then it's easy to collect it from the comb and make a wig.
