My nieces had been told I was bald from chemo but the first time they saw my bald noggin, when I took my hat off to cool down during a hot flash, they had very different reactions. The 5-year-old was disturbed and said "Auntie Finn, put your hat back on." But the 2-year-old thought it was the funniest thing she'd ever seen and laughed like it was a joke I played just to be funny. She immediately started calling me "Auntie David" because baldness made me look just like my brother. This got them both laughing so my older niece was no longer upset by my baldness.

Dear Finn,
