To know what it is like to be a man, they say, is to walk a mile in their shoes.
I have decided, instead, to pay homage to U.S. Presidents past by trying out their hair. Being of "limited follicular density," I am able to assume these 'dos fairly easily, and here they are now for your perusal...
Our first president, a brilliant strategist and an inspirational leader, true, but a tragic hairstyle by today's standards.
To think that he led the U.S. Army to independence, wooed and won Martha, and fathered our country with this coiffure as a hurdle to overcome, only underscores the greatness of the man.
Ol' Honest Abe went on to abolish slavery, popularize the stovepipe hat, and discover Nebraska, all while sporting those ears and without the benefit of a comb! Amazing.
Now THIS is great hair! You can't tell me this this guy wasn't a heartthrob with this mane of chick-magnet locks. If I were to grow back my hair, this is what I would be aiming for. Oh, yeah!
"SIngle file, ladies!"
Now some of you might think that this posting is born simply of me missing my own golden curls, from days back when my dance card was full. And perhaps there is a kernel of truth here, but even still...
HAPPY PRESIDENTS' DAY.
