Bald Spot

Thanks to the genes in the family, going bald is probably a long shot for me. If I were to head down that path, you'd quickly see me going to the local Long's and buying a heavy duty Wahl to keep thing high and tight

It's been about a year since I decided to go all Grizzly Adams and let the old beard grow. The current growth is just a sign of laziness on my part since shaving while I've had this cold is not something I really feel like doing. However, I did notice something unusual this morning in the mirror when I looked at my mug.

Apparently my bicycle helmet snap had created a bald spot under my chin. I don't have any issue with being "Manley" and growing a beard, but these spots look weird. Yeah, spots...plural. Just checked again and there are two distinct areas. Apparently the bike helmet industry hasn't caught on to this adjacent benefit from their gear. Too bad it can't work for my entire face. Shaving is just a hassle.

Have you heard of the TOP of the helmet producing these bald spots? Makes me not want to wear a helmet...or at least try and find an alternative.
