To Mohawk, or not to Mohawk
So, at least half of you will hate this idea, or so I believe.
I am planning to cut off all my hair on the 12th as you have read.
After the public hair cut I have to have it styled. The original plan was to shave my head anyway, but for fun get a mohawk. My high school reunion for the classes of the 1980's here in Dundas is less than a month after chemo starts so theoretically I will have some hair left by then. What better way to rebel against cancer than an aggressive haircut? What better way to rebel against any good girl image anyone may still have of me?
But truly, I have always wanted to be 'Storm' from the Uncanny Xmen in the 80's-NO not the heinous Halle Berry version (yes she is hot, but Storm she is not!) I had a Storm costume for the 'Chateau' Halloween party at Middlebury College in 1986( maybe '85) and I stood in the girls dorm washroom shaving the sides of my head much to the chagrin of the preppy white girls. I left the top of my Robert Smith like hair sticking up as high as I could hairspray it.
This is how I hope it will be next week.
Where the heck is Wolverine when you need him anyway?
I figure his admantium claws could remove cancer cells.
