Summer in Japan gets extremely hot, with temperatures all but touching 40 degrees in the Aichi and Gifu region. That means it’s time to shave some heads!
Remember these gentlemen?
Well, here’s what mummy did to us!
Rikuto didn’t seem too bothered about his new hairdo, or lack thereof, but for me it was quite a big decision. I’ve had the same hairstyle all my life, and the one big factor stopping me from shaving it off earlier was the infamous “Ramsay bald patch”! If you look closely at the picture, you can see I have a bald patch on the side of my head. It’s about two inches in diameter and looks kind of like a crop circle. I’ve always kept it covered with floppy hair until now.
In the past, I’ve joked about getting a bar code tattooed on my bald patch, but figure it would hurt too much. I did, however, get the courage to shave my hair off and expose my bald patch for the world to see. One reason for that boost of confidence is that my hair has receded so much over the years that it’s blended with the bald bit anyway, and another reason is I have four weeks before I need to go public again. Let’s hope it grows back by then! 🙂
