Sure I know people snicker behind my back. They also snicker to my face! And tell me I’d look better bald.
Well, no, I wouldn’t. I did that once and got so much ribbing and head-patting and codescention that I let the combover come back.
And every time I think it might work, I go swimming and some friend will be aghast, and give me a look that screams “You’re bald!”
