The Gray = The Insanity
I got my first gray hair when I was 18 – thank you genetics. I didn’t start seeing those buggers consistently until age 30; by 33 I was one with my ‘gray pulling tweezers’. Now, a few years later I have fallen prey to coloring it – booo. These days I spend 2+ hrs in the salon and $$$ on my hair cut and color – double boo! When I see cancer patients going through chemo, I realize I’m lucky to have hair. That said, I really really really hate my gray hairs. They are crazy; in fact they are completely insane. They grow faster than the rest, most grow straight out while others curl into the shape of some foreign object. This post is not at all intellectual but rather it’s simply about admitting the fact that my gray hairs make me insane. Am I alone?
