I knew someday this day would come. Did I think it would come when I was 28? NO!!! I HAVE GREY HAIR!!!!! Oh my God!!!!! Not just one or two…quite a few actually. There they are staring right at me, ” here we are” they are saying to me. And the worst part is, oh they are not fine little hairs growing in, they are white, wavy, wire like hairs poking out!!! Okay I already have a problem with turning 28 in a few weeks. I know, I know, you’re probably saying, “oh that’s not old”. Yea I know it’s not “old” per say. I don’t like saying I feel old or I’m getting old in front of older people because I’m sure that makes them feel REALLY old. I know when I’m in my 40’s or 50’s I do not want hear a 20 something year old telling me THEY feel old.
However as of August 14th, I will be closer to being 30 than I was to being 25 and that doesn’t sit well with me. Especially now that I have found the dreaded grey hair!! My Dad had a full head of white hair by the time he was 30. Is that what I have to look forward to?? Do I start coloring my hair now, do I wait? I stopped coloring my hair about a year ago and said I’d start again when I started getting grey. Well I didn’t expect it to happen in a year!
Oh and my son, bless his heart!! We’re on our way to softball and I’m whining talking to Jason about my great find and Bailey asks to see my hair. He starts off by pointing to one and saying, “oh there’s one…oh wait there’s another one, oh and another.” Twist the knife just a little more. Gotta love kids!!!
