I know I just wrote a post about hair but it is kinda on my mind (not for long.) About two days ago I was fixing the side burn part of my hair and it came out in my hand. Well I thought, I won’t need to trim that for a while. I called for my sister, Christine, who is staying for a few weeks. I showed her the chunk of hair. There wasn’t much to say. It is very weird to pull wads of hair out of your head. It is amazing how much hair we really have.
Today was a windy day. I was wearing a hat. On the walk back from PT (this is the PT who works on my lymphatic system and surgery site as opposed to the PT that works on my pinched nerve. I am a project.) I decided to pull a little chunk of hair out near the nape of my neck and let it go with the breeze. I showed Christine where I pulled out the hair. She said “Oh you might not want to do that as there is a “v” shaped space in the back of your hair.” I said “Well I can fix that.” So I pulled another chunk out on the other side to even things out.
I felt like standing there with my hat off and pulling all my hair out so it could go with the wind. But then I probably would have ended up in the police blotter. (For my non Bainbridge Island readers, the Bainbridge Review police blotter has some off the wall items that only happen in small towns.) I can see the headline now “Island Trainer Loses Hair in Massive Wind Storm. Fined For Littering.” I kept my hat on and walked home.
You’re so funny. I know all about the police blotter & you would have made it 🙂
Good decision on putting your hat back on – I hate seeing someone I know (and love) mentioned on the police blotter! Like that lady last year who found a suspicious box on her porch and instead of calling the police, she put the box in her car and drove to the police station. They had to shut down the streets around the police station for over an hour while they checked for bombs. Now THAT’s embarassing!
I know the Review is having the “Best of Bainbridge” where you vote on your favorite things from breakfast places to your favorite dentist, vet, etc.
I think you would have won best story in the police blotter of all time had you let your hair blow in the wind.
Heck, you might have gone viral!
And once again, you make me laugh. I love you.
So I was searching the web for a good hair joke and because “hair” is in the middle of “chairs” this is what popped up: by Robin Williams…I wonder what chairs think about all day: “Oh, here comes another asshole!” Hahahahaha!!!
That would have been right up there with my favorite blotter entry:

Crash: A monkey is believed to have contributed to a vehicle crash on Blakely Avenue. A 22-year-old Bainbridge man told police he swerved his Honda van to avoid hitting a deer. The van struck a tree and then rolled onto its side, causing front-end, side and roof damage. The driver was not injured. Police learned that a “live, unrestrained monkey” wearing red shorts was in the van with the driver. Police believe the monkey distracted the driver, contributing to the crash.
I love your sense of humor. Keeping laughing!
