When Mark came home from work today, he set his workout bag and briefcase down by the front door and kissed Chloe and I hello per his usual routine . He had a phone call scheduled with one of his clients, so Chloe and I stayed downstairs where I was working on dinner.
Normally Mark trims his goatee and shaves the day before he goes to work so he doesn't have his dopp kit in his bag. Apparently, he took it to the gym this morning to shave instead. I never heard the buzzing noise. I smelled Mark's cologne and realized she was playing with his 'sweet smell'um.' When I starting picking up stuff and putting it back in Mark's dopp kit, I noticed it...a pile of long blond hair!
I said, "is this yours?" to Chloe as I started to scoop it up. I quickly turned her head so I could see the side and noticed a bald spot about 2 inches wide and one inch long on the side of her head! I started laughing but I wanted to cry.
|it's more noticable than this picture shows...|
For those of you who know about her Alfalfa spike...it's safe. She still has it. I'm going to tie a ribbon around it and cut it for her scrap book tomorrow...before anymore hair CUTtastrophes strike.
