A few weeks ago, I found a little lump in my left breast. It'll probably turn out to be something completely harmless and boring, but in any case I'm going to the hospital on Tuesday to have some tests done on it. (One involves squeezing my breast between two glass plates to take x-rays of it, and the other inserting a large needle into it to take a sample of the lump. Yay, that will be fun!)
Well, when I first discovered it, my first thought was: "No! What if it's cancer?!"
Then, my second thought was, "Yes! What if it's cancer and they'll have to remove the whole breast?! What a neat scar that will make!!!"
(Well, it's not like it would make too big a difference whether I have a breast there or not - the ones I have can only be found with a microscope, anyway.)
Another thing about cancer that can be fun is chemotherapy. Of course, it will make you feel sick, but then, you get to wear wigs when your hair falls out! Also, I suppose it's not only the hair on the head that falls out, but also those irritating bristles on the legs. Another plus. The minus on the latter is that the hair grows back again if the therapy is successful, but at least you regain your health ...
Well, before anyone starts thinking of accusing me of severely bad taste, let's return to the wigs. If I could afford it, I'd buy several wigs to wear at different occasions and moods.
There are plenty of wig shops on the internet ...

The first one
could be for 'normal' occasions (like school), and the second
for more demanding occasions (job interviews, etc.).
Féke wigs and hairpieces
has a special focus on people under chemotherapy. Unfortunately, they don't allow right clicking on the website, so I can't give them free advertisement as effectively as I'd like to. Or so I thought, before I tried with my ancient Opera 5 browser (I keep it around, since it's pretty much bug proof and thus suitable for surfing after hairy men
Well, it would certainly be nice to have different lengths to choose between (long hair can be a pain in the ass, even if it can look quite nice). If I'd have a short wig ("Laurie"
), a mid-length wig ("Brandi")
- but not blonde like in the picture, a really long wig ("Janice")
and a slightly eccentic curly wig ("Chelsea"
), then that would give me some room for play.
Of course, it's hard to tell right now what styles and colours would really suit me - I've just picked the wigs that looked nice to me right now. But trying on many different wigs would certainly be half the fun!
