the new me...


So...what do you think? There was a small movement of people that spread the rumor, "if we raise $_________ at the auction, casey will shave his head." the thing is....I haven't cut my hair since December 19th 2006!!! that's a year and a half. So, Brandon Angelo made the announcement at the beginning of the Auction that if we raise $30,000...you know the rest. As my wife kept a running total, we looked to her for updates. As we worked our way closer to the end of the night, it seemed as if we weren't gonna come close to 30,000, so Dave Galanter started auctioning off swipes to my hair for $50 dollars. That wasn't awkward...it made my stomach hurt. i didn't want to lose my hair. We raised  nearly $500 extra dollars toward our goal, and at the end of the night...for everyone elses pleasure, the winners, along with a few of my students (which i was really glad) took turns at the death of my "mop." In just a few short minutes my hair was gone. 

 Before

First Swipe

After

As i was saddened by that moment, I have to say that it has been freeing to not have it in my face when I sleep or read a book. To use a dime sized amount of shampoo, instead of half the bottle. So, my conclusing is this. I was bummed in the moment, but today i stand tall not regretting for a minute the small sacrifice made for me.  I love all you bidders and you 8th graders who cleaned up the mess that we called my hair.
