The Old Gray Mare, She Ain't What She Used to Be.....
Is she better?
It occurred to me this morning that one of the reasons why I'm struggling with the whole college visit/college decision thing is because I am in denial that I am old enough to have a kid getting ready to go off to college.
Vanity! Thy name is Lisa.
This morning I went out to lunch with J because he likes to eat early since he gets into the office at 6:15 a.m. So there we were at 11:30 a.m. ordering muffaletta sandwiches at Jason's Deli and the lovely, fresh-faced young woman behind the counter tells me my longish, straight silver hair is gorgeous. "You skin just glows with it!"
Well, thank you very much, my sweet. I guess if I have to be old enough to have a kid going off to college soon, at least I can have glowy skin to go with my silver hair.
You know what? When I started this natural hair color experiment - and I have really considered it an experiment all along, one that could be easily reversed - I didn't know what to expect.
The reality is it's not so bad. I think I'll keep the silver. I mean, I could still be bald like I was when I started....
