While In Bed…

The other night while listening to the nightly news I heard that men who start to lose their hair in their early 20’s are twice as likely to develop prostate cancer later in life. Seems unfair, but interesting nonetheless.

Later in the evening while my husband and I were watching tv in bed I recalled that piece of medical news and asked him, “Did you start balding in your 20’s?” Without even looking at me he said, “Who said I was balding?”


I busted out laughing. My laughter turned to tears then breathless laughing.

My question was careless but it really was out of concern.

Now out of full disclosure my husband isn’t really balding. His hairline has started to recede but that’s how it goes for most, right?

Regardless, I guess I need to be more careful of my questions.

Asked any embarrassing questions lately?


  1. hahaha.. oh my..
    Interesting tid bit though. (My husband began losing his hair in his early 20s.)

    As for embarassing questions - I am sure I have. ;-)

  2. LOL poor hubby :) Hopefully he got a laugh out of it, too. Mine has a receding hairline, too. What can we do..old age is a B. Not that I'm getting older...just wiser!

    On another note, Adam just finally installed the faucet in my closet. Whoo hoo! No more sharing!

    And thanks for commenting on my rant about BCBG. I am a hurried shopper, too, and prefer to try on items at home.

  3. OMG I died laughing when I read this. I bet the look on his face was priceless!!

  4. Tim started balding in his teens. That's crappy to have prostate cancer on top of losing your hair! Hope you were able to repair your husband's self esteem after that one!

  5. I love how an innocent question of genuine concern could be misinterpreted as an insult. Hysterical.

    My hubby is receding, too!

  6. Hmmm I tried to think of an embarrassing question I had asked lately and I'm just coming up blank.

    However, I have a funny one that happened in my house not too long ago! My baby girl (Meggie Beth as I affectionately call her) turned to her daddy and said, "Daddy when did you start getting so much snow in your hair?" (referring to his BEAUTIFUL FULL head of grey hair.

    I laughed so hard I almost blew tea out of my nose. The innocence of a child eh? LOL

  7. Oh my that is a riot!! That is totally something I would do without realizing it. I know I have asked embarrassing questions but, I can't remember any at the moment..bummer. I do remember when my hubby and I were new at our church he turned around during the few minutes we get to greet the people around us and he met two guys that looks like they were both in their early 30's and both were named Mark. My husband shook their hands and then asked them...and I am not kidding, oh so are you his dad? I looked at my hubby and back at the two men who were the same age and had the same first name and said, "could you please tell me how on Earth you could think they would be father and son?" My hubby was having a total nervous, meeting new people brain fart moment but, it was a crack up!

  8. That is funny and very interesting at the same time. I guess it is good to know to check all things as we age. My husband has a great head of hair. That is not to say that he should not get checked. I hope you are well. Just send the article and I will let you knw when I will post it. Have a great night!

  9. hahahahaha, your poor hubby :) I'm sure you were being SUPER nice the rest of the evening after asking that??!!! So funny!

  10. This was so funny. Such a cute post. I am new to your blog and I am glad that I found it.

  11. Too funny. My husband is definitely getting the "ring" in the back of his head. He keeps trying to comb his top hair over it. This is a very *sensitive* issue so I pretend it's not noticeable. Yes, I've been known to ask embarrassing questions...ones that show my lack of underderstanding... I've learned over the years to think not once but twice before I start to speak.

  12. Haha, I actually LoL'ed at that! I ask hubby weird/embarrassing things far too often =/

    Found you on a hop, I'm glad I did!!


  13. Lol, too funny! My hubby has a receding hairline too, I'll make a mental note not to ask him when he starting going bald! New follower from Mom Blog Monday :)

  14. oops! i have the tendency of saying whatever's on my mind, but i've been much better recently! =)

  15. LOL...Great Post and Excellent Blog!!!

  16. This is so funny! I've never heard that before! I'm going to do some more research because my husband did start to go bald in his early 20's. Yikes! : ) I'll have to think about the embarrassing question. It's not that I can't think of one, I can't decide which one I should spill! Have a good day! (I know I've said this before, but I am in love with the music you use!)

  17. Hi, I found you on a blog hop. I'm your newest follower. Feel free to take a look at my blog:

    I'm sure everyday I ask at least one embarrassing question, but people are kind enough to answer them with a straight face.

  18. Hahaha! Yes! I asked my five year old "Do you notice anything different about Momma's hands?" I was freezing and my hands were super cold. She said, "Yes. They are really wrinkley!" Niiiiice. I laughed so hard! Kids.


Thanks for stopping by - it's appreciated!
