Little gray hair: yeah, I guess this is part of The You Evolution™, too
Eeeek! I found my first gray hair! Actually, I’m pretty certain it was white. Is that possible? No one drives me crazy enough to make me pull my hair out or give me white hair. And according to the research I’ve done, wiseGEEK included, your hair can absolutely not turn white from fright, no matter how extreme.
Drat. Guess that means I’m getting old.
Driving across the twin bridges, sunroof open, the rearview mirror revealed my new white friend. If it hadn’t been overcast, I surely would have assumed the bright sunlight was illuminating my natural blonde highlights. Hmmmm… maybe that’s how I’ll tell the story.
I continued to drive while attempting to remove the solo strand of hair. Quite a feat. I pulled five or six hairs before getting the stubborn rascal. Drawing a deep, restorative breath of air, I glanced at the rearview mirror and tossed myself an appreciative smile.
It was then I noticed the second little gray hair.
