I Have a Confession And It's Not Funny!

I have a confession to make. In my current near-hairless state ((chemo, remember?) I've found that I resemble my brother who wears his hair in a buzz cut. We have the same head shape. Even my Mom is amazed at our twinship appearance that was previously disguised by my mop of white hair.

But that's not my, it's WORSE than that! I've found that by placing my fingers behind my ears to make them stick out to the side and by grimacing and mumbling some insane quote of that poor fellow, I look uncannily like Gollum of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. (If you've never seen the movies, do a google image search for Gollum. You'll get the picture!) I kid you not. The resemblance is uncanny! This morning I appeared in the mirror behind my beloved while he was brushing his teeth and he sputtered toothpaste all over the bathroom sink while trying to suppress his laughter.

I told my beloved that I could post a movie of my Gollum impersonation on you-tube and I would be an overnight sensation. I'd probably get 165,000 hits in a single week and I'd be famous and I'd get an invite to appear on MSNBC and Fox News and the Larry King Show and who knows what else!

However, I'm no glutton for notoriety, not even of the best kind. So no pics today, folks!

I take great comfort in the fact that God looks at the heart and not at the outward appearance. I Samuel 16:7 That, and the fact that my hair will grow back. In about four months.

I don't know the character you speak of, but I'm glad you and your dear one are able to find some humor in such a difficult circumstance.
(I don't know how people do it without the Lord!)

Oh my. At least Gollum had lovely eyes. Sort of. And with the light of Christ shining from your eyes, the resemblance to Gollum isn't as close, I'm sure.

Are you in the midst of all that nasty weather I see hovering over Iowa (and heading our way)? This has been an unusually turbulent spring, it feels.
