Me: "Sorry my penmanship is a little shoddy. I had neurosurgery done today."
Guy #1: "Really?"
Me: "Yeah, see?" :| :dramatically takes off bandana, revealing the shaved part half slowly:
Guy 1 & 2: "Woah!" :o
Guy 1 moves around to see scar.
Me: "Naw, I'm just messin' with ya'!" :D
I also claimed it was male pattern baldness, only that it was happening all at once, from the right side to the left, and from the top down. Later, I told thetakogun that my hair was fine, and that he must have shaved a bit in his glasses, so he's only seeing that I shaved half of my head.
I've been having more fun with people's reactions than the hair itself!
