I am coming upon the end of the year and my commitment to a shaven head. I will be purchasing new clippers so that I can maintain my hairless noggin so that I can continue with what I set out to do. I rub my hand over my head. There is slight regrowth. To an … Continue reading Being Bald
Since my mf blog post just vanished, here is the reader's digest condensed version: You may not agree that Bill Cosby in guilty. Great, fine. Whatever.
