Not a pleasant discovery....
It happened ya'll. I turned 39 on Sunday, and I was very content with it. I went to church, had fun worshipping. Came home, got some cards, got to visit with Princess Ladybug, went to Bible Study and then to a Sunday School party. It was fun. But then, today it happened.......
While waiting in the car to pick up my brother I looked in the "vanity mirror" to check how much of my makeup had "sweat off" at the fitness center. While doing that I found 2 grey hairs. :-( I stared at them for a LONG time thinking, is that REALLY blond hair? It has to be blond. My hair is naturally about 4 colors. Brown, red and light brown/dirty blond highlights and black.
I have VERY thick hair, and a lot of it. When I was really little my hair was a dirty blond color. My sister, Queen B, had very beautiful blond hair. I wanted my hair to be as blond as hers, but mine was darker. Still, it wasn't bad. The older I got the darker my hair got. So, the
underneath looks black. The top is a medium brown, and like I said, has the highlights.
But, today I saw them. They were buried under some hair, but I saw a "glimmer". I pulled my hair apart until I found the offending piece, and just stared at it. I tried to justify it. Telling myself it was blond. But, my hair always gets darker, not lighter. Then, I tried to decide, should I pull it out? I have always heard if you pull it out two will take its place. I don't want to do that.
Then, I almost cried, ya'll. I swear I did. Between having the shingles and a grey hair someone is trying to tell me something.
While trying to wrap my mind around what was happening I then saw a hint of another "glimmer." I immediately made my way to that offending hair and compared the two side by side. Exact same color. This doesn't look good.
My brother came out and the first thing I said was, "Does this look blond or grey to you?" He looked hard, and a SMIRK came upon his face. But, he said, "I can't tell." THEN he said, "But, you're 5 years older than me and I have been going grey for years, so you get no sympathy from me."
Oh yeah, he went there. I can't believe it. I may have to get Queen B to color my hair. Seriously. Oh well, Happy Birthday to Me. :-(
