It’s 2001 and I’m only a couple of years out of high school. A recent realization has sent shock waves through my life. Something I figured would be almost inevitable, due to its heavy presence in my family, was undesirably coming to past. I desperately was hoping that I would be spared from suffering with this mind altering ailment. What, you ask? M.P.B. Male Pattern Baldness. Excuse me while I wipe away the tears. Although what I noticed was only a bit of thinning, I reacted quite furiously. “I’m too damn young”, I pleaded. “WHY?  WHY ME?  WHY NOW?” Deep depression shortly ensued and I thought my life was over. Knowing that most of my Uncles on my mother’s side of the family sported Cue Balls and some a “Homie da’ Clown” look, I began to inquire. Legend has it that the majority of them were clean bald long before they even graduated High School, all due to genetics. WHEEWW!!!! With that bit of knowledge I realize that I’m a little ahead of the curve. 

Over the past few years it has gotten worse but not by much. I’ve been licked by the cow, but fortunately for me, she left some hair behind. In recent years I’ve tried different ways to mask the thinning or prolong the time I have with my precious hair. A short curly fro, extremely close hair cuts and Braids (the most extreme), were a couple avenues I traveled down. None really satiated my desire for everlasting hair, so of late I have been considering the unmentionable. Cutting it all off. I try not to utter those words too often because of the pain it leaves in my heart.  “Oh the Agony!!!” Being that I have a large, oddly shaped head and have been called “Widget the World Watcher” in the past, I dread the day that will soon arrive. Now I finally, understand the reasoning behind the Combovers, Homie da’ Clowns, and road kill toupees my fellow M.P.B sufferers sport in an effort to keep what is so dear to us.

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT OF SILENCE AS YOU VIEW BELOW, THOSE WHO TRY TO STOP TIME, BEAT THEIR GENES AND KEEP WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY OURS!!!!

What’s going on everybody? Long time no post. Yeah, I know. Alright, for those of you who have been craving the rants, comical life stories and opinionated commentary from Jay3arr, and have been awaiting my return with bated breath, it is finally here. I’ll be honest, when I started this blog thing and everything was so new, I was excited to post and share what I had to say with the world. I must admit though, the initial excitement wavered a little and I was overwhelmed with keeping up with this thing, but with anything that you want to work, one must put forth the necessary effort to get it done. You’ll only get out of something what you put into it. So I’m back and ready to get it going. Again, I apologize to those of you whose depression worsened as the post-less days went on. I’m here to talk you all down from the ledges and tell you to drop the knives. For Jay3arr has returned!!!!!
