It is a sad, sad day on Heather Drive.
As I was driving into work this morning, I glanced at myself in my rear-view mirror. When I’m sitting in my seat, I have a pretty good view of the top of my head. On normal mornings, I’ll often observe that my part is crooked, or I’ll make note of the sad state of my highlights.
But on this overcast morning, the light through my sunroof shone just so… and suddenly, I caught a glimpse of something foreign. Something unexpected.
Could it be?
When I came to a stop in the parking lot at work, I had to take a closer look. I leaned forward to inspect, and to my horror, my eyes were not deceiving me.
My friends: I discovered my first-ever gray hair. There it was, sticking up right in the middle of my part, about 2 inches long.
Of course, it didn’t last. I ripped the impostor out of my head as quickly as possible, accidentally eliminating three perfectly normal brown hairs in the process.
I give you… my gray hair. (It’s the best I could do with a crappy cell phone camera.)
Look at it! Not only is it a shimmery shade of silver, but it is also thick, kinky, and coarse. Is this what I have to look forward to?? *shudder*
I don’t even have a stressful job or rambunctious kids to blame.
I am 27 years old. And this is 10 different kinds of wrong.
AboutI'm Heather. I just turned 30. I'm happily married, and mommy to the most beautiful little girl in the world (what, you're saying I could be biased?). Determined DIYer and homeowner. Sarcastic. A perfectionist. A bleeding-heart liberal. Frugal. Loves a little dog way more than many humans. Loves food, hates exercise (it's an ongoing battle). A loyal football fan. I love to laugh. Value family and friends above all else. Vie to be a world traveler.
