Have you done something different with your head?

I recently made a startling realization: I gained wait in my head.

Yesterday, in an effort to avoid the glare of the ruthless UV rays I pulled out my beloved 1975 replica Boston Red Sox fitted baseball cap. The cap – sized 7 and 5/8 – already marked my head as unusually large but I dealt with the trauma of my head size when I bought the cap in college because the cap fit me so perfectly. But now, when I put the cap on, it sits on top of my head like a beanie making me look like tweedle dum. As much as I try to pull the cap over my hair and down to my ears it is an effort in complete futility.

TW suggested I pull out some old pictures of me wearing the cap so that I might assess if my hair is bigger now than it was then. I checked. My hair is smaller – much, much smaller – than it ever was in college. Which conversely means that my head is just bigger – much, much bigger – than it ever was in college.

So: I decided to start the Atkins diet tomorrow in an effort to lose weight in my head. I’d like my head size to be down to 7 and 3/8 by the end of the month. Wish me luck.

Your hair is less than it was in college, but it is also most definitely bigger than it was in college....either that or the hat shrunk.
