My nephew Patrick is now bald. Bald in a good way. Up until last night he had been sporting long curly hair about a foot long, give or take. Apparently the shock value of long hair had worn off at school. And, being a properly rebellious 15 year old, he decided it was time for a change. His plan was to send his hair to "Locks of Love" after its amputation. His equally rebellious parents tag teamed on the hair removal surgery. By the end of the evening his head was smoothly shaved(Ooooh! Shiny!) and a rubber banded bunch of hair was waiting to be mailed.
I have yet to hear the details of his school mates reactions.
