Here is the story of a Bad Hair Day. It was Halloween, and my husband was taking my daughter around the neighborhood, leaving me to answer the door and shovel sugar to the monsters, princesses, and other assorted Trick or Treaters.

Most of the kids travel in packs, but towards the end of the nights' visitations a single girl, around 12 or so, rang the bell.

"Trick or Treat!"

She took a piece of candy, smiled at me brightly and said, "Hey, that's a great fright wig!"

I looked at her and said, "It's not a wig."

Astonished, she said, "It's not?"

"No, it's not."

Then I felt bad, because she was embarassed. So I told her I have the world's worst hair, and not to worry about it. I closed the door and I laughed.

Truly, I have always had the world's weirdest hair. So losing it to alopecia isn't such a hard thing for me. But I'm not buying a human hair wig...ever.

What if I got the world's penultimate worst hair?

That's funny you had the weirdest and I had the wildest hair gowing up. Kids would call me Medusa(sp?) after the lady with the live snake hair. My hair was very long and curly/kinky. Looking back that was pretty accurate. I forgot what movie had come out at that time(early 80"s) depicting Medusa but they had me pegged. I would cry about it then but wouldn't mind having that wild hair now. Sigh!

I love this - I hate wearing a wig at home so I am constantly on the alert to get it on before someone comes into my house - I must look ridiculous and extremely funny to anyone who sees me lol !!!
