A Major Change In My LIfe

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

I announced this on twitter earlier that I have made some changes. Well here you go:

I have had long hair for the last 2 years. I shaved it two summers ago when I lived in Vegas (115 degree weather in the summer). But sense then I have been growing it and refusing to pay for a haircut.
This is not the longest it has been. I have had long hair all through College and the summer I lived in Vegas. I am sure that I will grow it back some day. But for now I am content with having no hair.

I thought I would make a little contest out of this.

Here is the contest:
Best Caption of this photo wins the new CD from the Gungor Band.

So leave a caption below and on Friday I will choose the winner.


[EDIT: Announcing the Winner as of Friday April 9th]

After a lot of attempts at some captions to mark this major change in my life I have chosen a winner.
There were a lot of great captions that made me laugh, but I think the time and effort put into this comment and the story it provided wins.

So Congrats to….

Congrats Kevin. Go ahead and shoot me an email at kyle@thoughtsaboutnothing.com and I will send you the CD.

Thanks for all that have entered.

    Pedro: Well, when I came home from school my head started to get really hot. So I drank some cold water, but it didn’t do nothing. So I laid in the bathtub for a while, but then I realized that it was my hair that was making my head hot. So I went into my kitchen and I shaved it all off.

    Napoleon: I know what you mean.

      Wow, never had that comparison before.

    I was startled, from a mom’s point of view!

    Caption: “I always heard cooler heads prevail”

    BTW, who is Gungor? Guess that takes me out of the running?

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      Gungor is awesome. Here is a link to a song: http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com/a-must-do-song-for-easter/
      And now you really want to win this because the CD is awesome

      • Shellie (baylormum)

        OK, so I listened to about half the song. Think I need to get rid of my cold & headache to be more objective! Really. I feel yucky. I did go to their website & browse a little, if that helps my caption any!! I see where they’re going to be at Crowder’s new conference in Waco whenever it is. Plus my 23 y/o will probably wonder how in the world I even came across their music! I think my being on twitter before her & who I follow (at 52) still bothers her. Something about our worlds colliding, I think. :)

    Caption: “Carlos Whittaker bet me his new album that I couldn’t look like his CD cover! Ha! proved him wrong!!”

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      Thats good, I actually thought about going to the whole way just to be more like Carlos.

    Who cares about the hair, what’s up with those butterflies on your wall?

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      Thats a real butterfly that we let fly around our house.

      • Shellie (baylormum)

        And I didn’t even see those butterflies the 1st time! I was still in mouth-dropped-open mode, I guess.

    “It was so hot outside so i came in cut my hair and just admired the butterflies on my walls”

    I’m the worst at captions, I’m not funny.
    I’m debating cutting my hair, not shaving bald completely cause that’d be WEIRD.
    But yeah. Its almost to my elbows, and i have REALLY thick hair and the temp is creeping to the 90s i may be chopping it off soon

    wait, which Gungor CD are you giving away? Hahaha! It is the gift that keeps on giving. :)

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      Hahaha, not the one you gave me. I am giving it through iTunes.
      No way am I giving up the real thing. And yes I am passing on the goodness that is Gungor.

      • http://www.anidolheart.com Grant Jenkins

        that’s awesome man! And welcome to the ranks of the shaved heads. :) Of course, yours is by choice and mine really isn’t, but somehow it’s all the same. :)

    Ooo! I have another one:

    Kyle may never march in the infantry, ride in the gallery, or shoot the artillery. He may never zoom o’er the enemy, but he is *very* serious about the Lord’s Army.

    Start that video at about 0:27 and that was my initial reaction to your tease on twitter which I immediately knew would mean you cut your hair.

    • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com Kyle Reed

      thats funny. That was my sisters reaction as well.
