    "hooking up in the real world," hosted by coral and myself. it ended up pretty good.
    "coming out" stories told by comedians and writers. not a comedy show, per se, but is often funny.

    OK. I had to go back and read everyone else's suggestions from the other day and see. I didn't get from your post whether this is, like, a friend-friend, or a reeeeeeeeeeeeeally close friend/nee/more... but I think in this situation it doesn't matter anyway.

    I'm going to have to agree, I think, with what Karey said: "Just say something like '(Insert name here), I'm not being rude and I'm saying this in your best interest.. that combover really does nothing for you.' then follow it up with a compliment like 'I mean, you've got great eyes and I think you would look great if you just bit the bullet and maybe shaved your head?'"

    So how are you with the honesty thing there? Plus, you're so adorable and funny, I know you can say something like that in a way that won't be offensive or upsetting.

    I honestly can't see another way to do it. I mean, you could go the tough love route, find the worst picture you can find of someone else with a combover and show him and say "Look, this is how bad yours looks, or almost"... but that would probably be upsetting.

    Is he REALLY that unaware of how bad it is? Maybe he's doing it deliberately?

    Grab a fashion magazine, point to a haircut and say 'Omigawd, that haircut would look SOOO good on you!'

    Or find a pic of David Beckham with a close-cropped/shaved head look and do the same.

    Or... the two of you get REALLY drunk and have one of those honest conversations you can only have when you're really drunk. Hopefully he'll remember in the morning, or at the very least, have planted something in his subconscious....


    is he a good friend?
    a good friends that reads your blog?
    if so, message is given

    if not... do you really care that much about him?

    just kidding... i'm out of suggestions


    Oh just tell him.


    If it bugs you that much, go ahead, get it out, tell him why, then fix the way you blurted it out later.

    Oh,but be prepared for him to be very unhappy with you. That's right, shoot the messanger, not the message.


    Hey I didn't say that but again, I'd find someone's 'do that he admires and gush about how great that would look on him.

    Or, screw it. Tell him what you posted above. Then offer up the # of your stylist and say you'll pay.

    Or just give the #


    yes i was in south beach yesterday and i would have to agree admist all that wind a glob of hair spray hair would not with stand at all.

    a change will do you good
