There is no greater indicator of how good of a day you're going to have, than a prostitute propositioning you at 5:50am, while you're trying to complete a 5 mile run. That's what I always say..I was tying my shoes, and out of nowhere comes this prostitute dressed like the woman at the beginning of MJ's Dirty Diana video. She put her hand on my back, asked me how I was doing, and I said I was fine, but I had to run..literally. As I ran off, she asked me if I was sure I didn't need any help with anything, and I thought to myself, "Really? That's your hook to get folks to sleep with you for money?" COME ON!

Now I get to a much more serious matter. Yesterday, I had the distinct pleasure of participating in Washington Wizards Media Day, and in the next few days, I suppose you will read my thoughts, findings, opinions, etc. But there were photographers all over the place during that event, and as a result my picture was snapped a few times, but there is one picture that concerns me, and that is this one.

Now if you look closely at the top of my head, it looks like either I'm thinning up top or I am balding. This is a great concern of mine, because my father is balding that way too, although his didn't start until around 53 or so. I don't know whether its the way I brushed my hair the day, or if its the fact that I'm wearing my hair longer than usual, but I am disturbed at this. I love my hair man. I'm no Troy Polamalu or anything but I still love my hair. And if I lose it, I don't mind rocking a bald head, but if I did that, then I'd have to shave my beard. As my friend Cliff says, if you have a bald head and a beard, then that beard looks like you just snapped it out..as opposed to folks with hair who can blend it in nicely. The king of snap-ons right now? RAWSE. I can't go out like that at all.

Luckily for me, I was able to find another picture from yesterday right here, which shows that my hair is fully intact..still, I'm completely paranoid now.

you're tripping. All I noticed were Lebron's shifty eyes. and in the 2nd picture it just looks like you got a fresh new cut. but if it concerns you that much, take some hair vitamins. They may help, they might psych you out ;)

Man... I can't even comment. I now cut my hair super low to hide thinning in that EXACT location but it is slowly turning into a bald spot.

I can't even blame my Pops. He is sporting a full head of hair at 71 and made a point to tell me... "not sure where you got THAT from son..."

I have to say this is the most depressing blog entry you've written. For me at least...
