It’s natural

I‘ve been noticing more of my hair these past few days. Not the hair ON my head, but the hair FROM my head that’s now on the bathroom counter, on my clothes, even, ick, on my dinner plate.

I noticed the noticing — the increase in frequency — and had a momentary thought of “OMG, what if I’m starting to lose more of my hair?”

But seconds later, my brain said, “Um, you’re an animal. It’s spring time. Animals shed some of their winter hair in spring. This is a natural process when moving from colder months to warmer months: mammals shed some of their fur.”

I don’t know if that’s 100% fact but it seemed logical enough to me. My brain seemed pretty darn sure that was right.
