And I'm not talking about the kind you walk on. I'm referring to the rugs balding men wear. Why do they wear them? Are they in denial and do they honestly think we can't spot one a mile away? My hubby wore one when we first got together. It was custom made and I had no idea, really. It wasn't until we were, ah, having whoopee one afternoon and the damn thing flopped forward over his eyes that I found out about it! LOL
Do men think we love them for their hair? By the time I found out hubby was balding I was so in love with him that he could have surprised me with anything. I didn't care. And after that I hated that darn rug. It took a couple years to convince him he didn't need it. He switched it for a baseball hat. One thing I noticed was when he did wear it, it was because we were going out and he knew there would be other women there. He told me he was vain.
I found that old rug in a box in the closet not too long ago. At first I thought something had crawled in there, died, and all that was left was the hair!
Last night we were dining out and I glanced over at a couple at the next table. I immediately spotted the rug. OMG it was so obvious. The poor guy was bald and the rug he was wearing was a thick strip of hair that only covered the very top of his head. I looked away so he wouldn't see my smile, and met hubby's eyes, seeing the amusement in them. He'd spotted the man and was doing the same thing.
I know several other men who wear rugs. Some look better than others. And I'm not saying I wouldn't wear a wig if I was losing my hair. Which I am. As I get older I notice it thinning out. Even though my stylist says I have nice hair...whatever that means:)
