Forgive a Father’s Pride

And now for something completely different. I don’t usually post about non-pupillage stuff, but my number 4 is cutting her hair off to make a wig for a child with cancer, which seems a worthy enough act for a worthy enough cause to justify a departure from the norm. All sponsorship gratefully received on the Justgiving page.


The deed is now done. Thank you very much to all of you who have donated and spread the word (the page is still open). It all looks a little different now…

    1. What you said could come across as a bit rude, don’t you think?

      Whether you feel like you have been cheated out of a proper “climax”, it doesn’t detract from the fact that what Penina did – “cutting her hair off ” was the wording of the post, not “shave” – was an exceptional gesture that has no doubt been of great benefit to the charity in question, particularly the receiver of the wig – presumably there was enough hair for the two of them.

      I, personally, think it’s amazing.

    2. Not much experience of 13 year old girls in that case.

      I’m sorry you think it is an anticlimax. I rather took the view that the altruistic act was the important thing, rather than becoming a participant in a sort of freak show for the pleasure of strangers. I suppose I’m very old-fashioned.
