I fell backward fast...

Ruthless wig slid off my head...

Shame rolled in quickly...

    So sorry!😒❀️ This probably won't help... I used to joke about my wigs. I had only 3 of them. All different. People who knew I was bald under the wig would make comments like, "I love your hairdo. I would pull it off my head and offer it to them. Probably not very nice, but I would think of how not nice is was of them, knowing I was bald under that hairdo. I will still wear hair pieces as my hair is so thin, and I try to behave myself when I get a compliment!🀣🀣🀣

    This is hillarious if a bit mortifying! Loved it!

  • Not just the fall, but the exposure!

  • Oh no!

  • Oh nooooo! I would have wished to just melt to the floor and die 🀣🀣🀣🀣

    OMGOSH! This has happened to me! It's one thing when you're clearly in costume and people know it's a wig, but it's something else entirely when they think it's real! This short "piece" carries a big impact! Great job!

    The wig stories are always hilarious. Mine never stays on, always slipping cause the strap won't sit still. This is such a darn great Senryu. Always the fun ones from over at Tiffany's. High five.

    "Ruthless" fascinating choice of word. I used to have real wig fear when I used to wear one. This is so real!! ❀

    That’s why I can never wear a wig. I remember this YouTube story, where the cops visit this lady door cause a neighbor saw hair hang out from her car truck, it was her new wig she just bought, the police office could not laughing . πŸ˜‚
