Tonight during dinner, I opened the subject of my inevitable hair loss. I wanted to prepare them mentally as best I could. (Ironic, since I find myself so unprepared, despite knowing that this day was coming.)
I asked them what they were thinking. Would they freak out at me being hairless? I want them to take it seriously, but not too much so. I don't think I want any bald jokes...unless I initiate it. Kind of like the "flat" jokes about my chest. It's okay if I say it. But not so much so for others.
Anyway, I had to crack up at the two responses I got from them. This was spontaneous, right at the beginning:
Isabelle: "You are going to be all face."
Olivier: "Now we will find out if you really have eyes on the back of your head."
Gotta love it. It made me crack up for the first time over the subject!
