History of Hair....Mine!

I've always wanted to wear a nice short, well-groomed ponytail.

So far it hasn't happened. If I had one in high school, they would have beat me up.

If I had one at BYU, they would have booted me out.

If I had one while on an LDS mission, they would have sent me home.

If I had one while serving in Bishoprics, it would have been a 12-day dabble instead of a 12-year stint.

Once they release me from working in the temple and once my wife and I serve a mission, I should finally be home free with the hair.

I can hardly wait, and neither can my hair. The whiter my locks become, the less there is of them.

Here is my history of hair, sans potential ponytail.

 The comb-and-go look at age 15.

 At 17, a little dab of Brylcreem was nice, but Crisco was better.

Mainstream Mane at 30.

At this stage of life, the race is on between my hair and hopes of a ponytail. It should be a photo finish.

  2. Mahalo,

    I was feeling rather melancholy and discouraged over some aging issues tonight (I suspect we are close to the same age) and I stumbled across (retorically ofcourse, although I did stumble a year ago and tore both achilles tendons, but I digress; a.k.mentally wander.) your amusing post...old though it may be. Thanks, it made me smile. So far I have not done "getting old"
    very gracefully. I'm sure I'll be humbled plenty before its over :)

Thru the lens and life of HB

I'm an apprentice senior citizen who can't wait for my old-man discounts to kick in. At one time, HB stood for Healthy Baby, Hunky Body, Happy Bridegroom, HouseBroken and Half-Baked. My current HB status is Has-Been. A few more Happy Birthdays and Hardly Breathing can't be too far away. Then, hopefully it will be Heaven Bound. I will keep you posted.
