I Wouldn't Have the Guts to...

"I wouldn't have the guts to get a haircut like yours. I just couldn't chop off all my hair like that. It looks good on you though."

That is what the lady at the optician's office said to me when I picked up my new glasses this week.  She kept going on about how she was going for a haircut that night, but that she was sure all her wrinkles would show up more if she had that little hair.

Should I have explained that this was regrowth after chemo and not a haircut at all?  Or should I have just thanked her?  I didn't know what to do, so I just sat there smiling at her while she adjusted my new frames.

The good news is that I think this means that my hair no longer looks like a Medical Emergency. 

I guess now my hair just looks like a Bad Decision or a Serious Fashion Mistake. Or maybe it looks like my hairdresser decided to really give me my money's worth.

I'll ask Lou to take a picture so you can see my hair and my new glasses.  Check back tomorrow...
