It’s been three months since Dr. Ricardo Mejia conducted my hair transplant, which means I am supposed to be seeing the first signs of hair growth.
And I am. But nothing very noticeable in a photo or even if you are standing across from me in a room.
But if you stand up close and stare at my hairline as my friends who haven’t seen me in a couple of weeks do, then it becomes noticeable.
It’s especially noticeable to me when I stand in front of the mirror and notice that some of the new hairs sprouting out are white, which goes to show you age will fuck you one way or the other, hair transplant or not.
But even then, I would rather have a salt-and-pepper head of hair than no hair at all.
To the random stranger who has no idea I had a transplant, I look as if I am losing hair rather than growing hair.
That is why I wasn’t surprised the other day when I was strolling through the shopping mall and was approached by a young lady working at one of those kiosks you see in the middle. Continue reading →
You know you’re out of touch with pop culture when you’re excitedly told that iJustine is going to be at an event and you’re like, “who the hell is that?”.
It turns out, iJustine is very hot. Not just in the physical sense but in the celebrity sense.
And more impressively, she did it all through Youtube videos. Armed with nothing but a handheld digital video camera and a laptop, she started producing videos of herself going about her day.
Yes, we’ve all seen people who do that. In fact, Youtube is filled with people like that. And most of them suck, which is why I spend as little time on Youtube as possible.
But iJustine has the distinction of appearing not to take herself seriously when in fact, she takes herself very seriously, which is the secret of her success.
But I didn’t find all this out until after I had met her and started Googling her.
The night I met her, which was about a week before my hair transplant operation, she was just another pretty face with some kind of celebrity status. And those are a dime-a-dozen in Miami.
So I decided to ask her the question I’ve been meaning to ask all females since launching this blog.
“Would you prefer a bald man or a fat man?”
The truth is, most women would prefer a chiseled man with a full head of hair, but there aren’t that many to go around.
And when we get older, we tend to either gain weight or lose hair or both.
It’s a question that’s been asked countless times on the internet. And the answer is pretty obvious once you realize women crave sex just as much as men.
They would prefer a bald, fit man over a fat man with a full head of hair. They’d rather stroke their fingers over a man’s muscular buttocks than run their fingers through his hair.
But iJustine – who is never at a loss of words in her videos – refused to answer that simple question.
Granted, she has the looks, age and celebrity status where she doesn’t have to settle for one or the other, but it was just a hypothetical question. And we all had a good laugh over it as you can see in the above video. She’s a very cool chick. Continue reading →
