The Big Man is follicley challenged. Is that a PC way of saying it? And no that is not a picture of the Big Man. It's Gregor Fisher as "The Baldy Man" one of his many hilarious characters.
The Big Man was bald when I met him, so it is only in old faded photos that I've ever seen him with a full head of "Rick Astley" hair. He liked his hair mousse did the Big Man. The more volume the better.
So obviously the Wee Man has never known his dad to have any hair, save for some bum fluff on the sides and back. We never really mention the baldness. It just doesn't register. The Big Man is the man I fell in love with and he is quite secure with his "hair style".
So it is with great surprise that the Wee Man has become rather obsessed with his dad's lack of hair and seems to be quite worried that he will lose his own luscious locks.
Wee Man: Mum, when I grow up will I have hair like Dad's
Me: I'm not sure son, maybe.
Wee Man: BUT I LIKE HAVING HAIR!!!
Me: (Trying not to pee myself) You'll just have to wait and see, darling.
Wee Man: I LIKE MY HAIR!!!
Wee Man: Dad, why do you cut your hair when you have none?
Wee Man: Mum, why does Dad have no hair?
Me: I don't know, what do you think
Wee Man: (Thinks for a bit and then runs around like mad shaking his head)
I think he went like that and he knocked it all out.
Me: (Trying again not to pee myself) Maybe it's not a good idea for you to do that again then.
Hopefully the Wee Man will get to keep his locks but with baldness on both sides of the family, the future is looking quite bleak.
