Bald conservation

Arroyo GrandeFebruary 27, 2014 

Jim Paglia’s letter, “Savings could add up” (Feb. 23), required me to respond with a way I save 10 gallons of water every day. In an effort to simplify my life, I did an experiment to see how much water I used washing my hair.

I checked the meter and then took a shower. The next day, with my wife’s help and approval, we shaved my head. Again, we checked the meter before and after the shower. You guessed it: There was a 10-gallonper-shower savings.

So, “bald is beautiful,” and it saves time, money and 10 gallons of water every day. The next time you see a bald guy, know he is helping conserve our water. How are you going to conserve 10 a day?
