my silver hair
Bruce took this pic of me the day after we got married. I hate pics of me. Anyway you can see my silver hairs here. Note not grey but silver. Ok quit looking at my jacked up cupboards for a minute and look at the top of my head, right in the middle...you can see the streak starting
(Wait can I just say my cousin lived here before me and I don't know why they painted SOME of the cupboards with navy blue spray paint, but i do intend on painting over them,...someday.)
Ok now BACK TO ME>
so there is my streak I have been talking about for over a year. Saying it will soon look like a chic from X-men. IT's getting bigger, or more and more. It started with one when I was 18, that my mom ALWAYS pulled out. Then 2 by the time I was 23. Then when I was 28 I thought it was about 6 but the lady that cut my hair told me I had a bunch. I left for Minnesota about a month after that so that night in the motel room I sat and looked through my whole haed and pulled out about 16.
Now I can't fight it, or I will surely be bald.
But I don't mind it. I mean they ARE silver and not grey.
I am sure each one accounts for something in my life.
They Yankees losing in the post season last year had to be worth about 3 or 4 of them.
Waiting on pins and needles for Bruce to show up when he called and said he would be here in an hour, I am sure sprouted out 2 more.
My son's health scare this year had to account for many many more.
Waiting to see how I would be recieved as a columnist acounted for many.
Waiting in line at the grocery store and hoping I didn't go over my budget.
Hitting on the slot machine on a max bet.
Sitting at the IHS waiting room trying not to be mad at IHS.
When I found out I was getting laid off.
Worried about my kids when they were out after curfew.
Worried about my kids in general.
I am sure that each and every one of my SILVER hairs has a story and a meaning. I am sure I will be fine as they multiply in vast haste.
I am sure it will look ok.
If not, I am dying them bitches Loreal Feria number 6.66 Double Intensity Auburn Red
and trying my luck at bingo!
