I thought it was just random but I was wrong. Every once in a while I get an itch on my back and scratch away. Sometimes, on the same spot where the itch came from, I find what I thought to be a loose and fallen hair from my head. I slowly brushed it a couple of times with my fingers and all I did was change the direction it was pointing. Upon closer look, I realized it was actually connected to my back! Very uncharacteristic of a true Latino lover. No biggie right? But then I get an itch on the other side of my back and stumble onto another lonely hair begging to be yanked. What the hell? Is this the precursor to a mid-life crisis? Are these random hairs a result of unwarranted stress? Am I still undergoing the last stages of puberty? Have I pissed off a random Aztec god I don’t know about?
I don’t find it a coincidence that I recently celebrated a birthday. Is this what happens when you age? If so, ladies beware, I hear it happens to you too. I can handle a few random hairs on a woman’s back, but once the mustache starts kicking in, that settles her birthday or X-mas present (whichever comes first).
