Missing

When I was growing up my Dad changed his facial appearance so often that it got to the point where we just didn't notice when he shaved off his mustache or beard. One time, when I was a teenager, we went for three days - that's 3 dinners with 5 of us sitting around a small round table, each within easy poking distance of each other. No one noticed for 3 days.
So this morning when I got an email from my husband saying that maybe he should have shaved his head and maybe then someone would notice, I gathered that he had shaved his beard this morning and was bummed because no one noticed.
Nevermind that we were running late - as usual.
Nevermind that Will didn't want to get up - as usual.
Nevermind that I was busy making lunches - as usual.
Nevermind that I was reminding the girls to brush their hair, eat their breakfast, & pack their bags - as usual.
Nevermind that he was dealing with the dog - as usual.
Nevermind that the world was spinning out of control - as usual - and we just couldn't notice the missing hairs.
Nevermind that there's a long history of not noticing little things like hairs missing from faces.
So, maybe he should have shaved his head....
