Because it appears I will be joining many of you gents in the “post-hair” phase of life.

My wife thinks I’m overreacting, and my full hair did last a decade longer than my brother’s, but I admit I’m not talking it as well as I thought, knowing years ahead it was a distinct genetic possibility.

Now it’s matter of seeing if I get my dad’s hairline (bald spot in 30s, kept the rest full and no change in hairline), or my brother’s (... He’s as bald as they come). Hairline is holding strong for now. But who knows.

Better start shopping for a car that will be as shiny as the top of my head. I can turn any circumstance into a reason to buy a car, luckily.
