Women notice the subtle things!

I mean, this is really subtle right?

Well, this is a quickie post as I've been sick, I went to see Rifftras's version of "Night of the Living Dead" and trying to avoid watching the Red Sox currently losing Game 2 of the World Series.

This was written for Shauna Marie a few years ago, and what the hell .. it contains mentions of an Imp which is always fun to read, don't you think? I have referenced them in the past, mainly in this caption post, "Mindi and the Imp" which you can find HERE.

Well, anyway, I'll be posting more over the weekend. Have a great night!


  1. It is subtle. I think anyone who's accepted his receding hairline (what hairline?) can appreciate this even more.
    And when dealing with women, trying to hide having dressed up means you would have to become subtle yourself. A trace of makeup, a little perfume lingering, they pick up on it unless you have a good reason to explain it.

  2. as an ex long hair in my grunge heyday no problems up top yet except for the grey. I am all ways amazed what ladies can do with their hair and how it can change their look. not that I am a fetishist or anything.

  3. It's funny, but I didn't think about this when I read the caption. It only came to me when I read Helena and Ian's comments. My hairline had been static for a very long time but after a year of keeping my head bald (while my Dad was going through Chemo) there were certain parts that never came back. I now sport two fairly severe widow's peaks. Not only that, but there is a 'ring' of comparatively 'thin' hair surrounding the top of my head.

    I've always had a rather 'boyish' face and people assumed I was between five and ten years younger. Those assumptions stopped at that time though and people were better able to gauge my age. Other things happened around the same time (some weight loss making my face more long than round, some 'laugh lines' and other subtle wrinkles...) but I believe my new more 'middle aged' hairline has grounded my look into the late-thirties/early-forties that I truly am. I suppose it helps that I wear a hairstyle that emphasizes my widow's peaks rather than trying to hide them.

    I've also never given much thought as to what I'd do with my hair if I mysteriously and quickly changed into a woman. About the most discrete thing I've thought of is that I'd keep it simple. A ponytail or some other method of controlling my new long hair. I wonder if that comes from me having a simple hairstyle as a man and never giving much thought to my hair now.

    Thanks for the deeper thoughts Dee, Helena and Ian!
