Lookin' like Juan!
I said it before and I'll say it again...the longer a couple stays together the more they look alike!
Don't believe me? Then take a look at my portrait with hubby Juan Luckybastard, taken just last Friday evening. I think we look strikingly alike, don't you? From the tops of our little bald heads to the tips of our mustache, our image shows what a healthy, happy marriage we have.
OK, I'm callin' bulls*!t on myself. Don't get me wrong, we are a happily married couple. And I do usually have a mustache. And he does wear glasses (just not those pink ones!). But the haircut itself is just more fun with chemo!
The truth about my lost hair is that when the chemo doc asked me Friday if I had started losing my hair yet, I answered no as I ran my fingers through my Mohawk. Lo and behold, I came away with a fistful of hair. Even the doctor laughed at the timing of the first fallout.
So when we got home from MDAnderson that night, Juan took the dog clippers to my thinning Mohawk and gave me HIS hairdo. The free photo-altering software GIMP did the rest.
By the end of the evening, I was completely shaven bald.
I don't know what it says about me but I actually like it.
And when we take our nightly walks, cars veer away as their headlights reflect on our naked domes and they think we're an oncoming car!
