Let It Shine
Today, believe it or not, is Be Bald And Be Free Day. Having a full head of hair, I'm not sure if I can fully sympathize. Is baldness such a catastrophe that those who suffer from this malady need a day to celebrate their affliction?
There are tons of jokes:
What did the bald man say when he got a comb for his birthday? I'll never part with it.
Don't look at it as baldness, look at it as a great cure for dandruff.
Is my hairline receding? No, your scalp is advancing.
I don't believe there's any consensus among scientists as to the evolutionary point of baldness. It may just be a sign of aging--most male pattern baldness comes after the prime mating years, when many parts of the body change. Some believe it's a marker of maturity, so women will think, as a man goes bald, that he's less aggressive and more socially responsible.
Regardless, let's observe BBABF Day. Now is the time to let your bald flag fly.
