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?
