Funny enough, my head feels cold. I didn't expect that, given that I have very short hair anyway, but after getting it shaved off...yep, walking around the mall, it was cold.
Overall there were 314 people registered for the event...and only 80 women. *Lots* of kids, though, and a surprising number of younger girls, getting shoulder length and longer hair shaved off.
Those are the ones I give major respect to. It takes a lot for a little girl to go bald, especially those who are around junior high age, when how you look is *everything.*
And something that surprised me...I was a little nervous.
After about 10 minutes, I was waiting to be the next one out onto the stage.
Yep, a little nervous.
This is KCRA (Sacramento channel 3, NBC) Chris Riva talking to me, and after getting my name and where I was from, the first thing he asked, "Why the purple."
Oh yeah, I threw you all under the bus and told him I have strange friends who donate money to see me do stupid things.
Will I do it again?
Ask me again in a couple of weeks, when I've had to deal with staring and questions...
