Dear God, There Has Been A Mistake

To cap of the oh-so-delightful weekend, last night I found my first gray hair. Followed by ten, count'em ten, of its siblings.

I'm only 35!

And, I'm a redhead! We're not supposed to really go gray. We just kind of fade into a yucky color.

This should not be happening to me!

Needless to say, this morning I bought a box of haircolor and plan a dye job later today. Good thing I am going back to work in the fall. We'll need the extra money to pay for my salon visits from now on!

Let me get this straight: you're 35, a mom, and have been teaching for how long, and you're just NOW getting gray hair?! I got my first one at 24ish after teaching for less than a year! Count yourself fortunate, dear. Personally, I think they're kind of cool.

I'm blonde, so I've been pretending for a long time that I have no gray hair. Which of course is a fiction. In certain light, it's frightening.

Surely there must be some kind of a mistake! (did that help? that's what I tell myself)

Oh, my first was in my 20s. And now I go to the salon every six weeks.

I wish I had red hair. I do have lots of freckles, so I think I could pull it off.

Pluck it! ;)

Once you start tinkering with the hair color, there's no going back!

Uh, not that I would know or anything.
