Ears
I saw an older guy today, and it looked like he had something on his head, like I don't know a dark piece of lint caught in his hair or something. On closer discrete inspection, I realized it was in his ear. Then I noticed something dark in his other ear too. I figured they must be hearing aids, but they still kept catching my eye because they were an odd color.

Then I realized: it was ear hair. All of his hair was gray/white/missing, but apparently his ear hair is still its natural color. Dark. Little tufts of dark hair in the middle of each ear....

I tried really hard not to stare. I hope I succeeded.


Unrelatedly, She Who Clarifies is really cool.

Why would he not trim it? Yikes!

That is harder to do than you would think.

No, I don't use it myself, but it certainly seems about right for the job. Certainly, I imagine it would remove enough that your ear hair isn't mistaken for hearing aids.

Kind of reminds me of the old joke (or was it a myth) - that men have a fixed about of hair, and as it disappears (or thins) from their heads it pops up in other places.

I figured that my Little Trees Fairy needed her wings...

Sadly for many men hair keeps growing everywhere but on top of your head.

Yeah, you know you're over thirty when the hair on your back is longer than the hair on your head.

Tell me about it. I gave up and decided to just give in to Mother Nature's wishes.

Funny enough, our offices are located on the same floor as the Hair Club for Men (and Women). I've seen lots of bad attempts at fixing these problems, I'll take my Head Blade and a chrome dome anyday.
