My Dad is as bald as a badger. This may seem like a fairly irrelevant fact, but male baldness is passed down through the female line. I’ve always told the boys that if they want to experiment with their hair, best to do it now while they still have it, because statistically they’re not all going to end up with full heads of hair like their father.
A year ago some of you may remember that Evan15 was given dreadlocks by Santa Claus. This necessitated a long drive to the other side of town and a 6 hour marathon session with two crochet hook wielding woman who turned his lovely silky locks into ropes.
He went back once for maintenance on the regrowth, but then made excuse after excuse not to go back. His dreads grew long and unkempt. He looked like an ‘Occupy Melbourne’ protester. (Just a topical little joke there…)
He finally decided to chop them off. Most people just shave their heads, but when David18 cut his off last year, he un-matted as much as he could and ended up with a decent head of hair, so Evan15 decided to do the same thing. It took hours.
For a few halcyon minutes he sported a mullet. It was like being back in the 70’s.
