Most of us don’t want to feel old. Even fewer of us want to look old. Yet extreme measures to cover up our age aren’t always successful. For instance, let’s just say that the following story is true.
Because it is.
A guy in his mid-thirties starts to lose his hair. He has a few options.
- Shave it all off.
- Go bald gradually.
- Fake it with a rug.
So he gets a rug. The first time he wears it he’s thinking ‘dang, I look good.’
So good, in fact, that he wants to really convince people it’s real. So… he purchases two more toupees.
Bald guy now updates his Outlook Calendar with reminders. Every 10.3 days he plays toupee shuffle, switching out the longer lengthed toupee until it’s time to go back to the shortest. Hence, he actually gets a haircut.
Also, he’s constantly taking compliments on his ‘new haircut’ every 30 days.
How old do you feel?
It’s one of my favorite out-of-left-field-get-to-know-you questions.
The answers always reveal a lot about a person. Try it sometime and see what responses you get.
