However, the cats aren't the only hair-producing machines in the house. I tend to lose quite a bit, too. Every time I wash, comb, or fiddle with it a few strands come loose. The average human loses between 50 and 150 hairs per day. (I think I'm on the higher side of that range.) In warm weather we shed more, so this month's oppressive heat should lead to quite a shedding season!
This afternoon when I walked into the bathroom, I noticed a small pile of hair on the floor next to the rug. Then I saw more on the other side of the rug. And more by the toilet. What a mess! I'm not sure where it came from. because when I comb my hair, I purposely turn my back to the mirror so any loose hair falls on the vanity and I can throw it away. Wherever it came from, it had to be cleaned up. I got down on my knees and went around the room, sweeping the hairs into a pile with the side of my hand. When I got done, I had a pile of hair that rivaled anything the cats ever produced.
Is that something to be proud of or embarrassed about?
