Her name is Nubbin. She was at my future-son-in-law-next-door's birthday party last weekend and was wearing a diaper! If that's not precious, I don't know what is. Such a sweet old gal.
(Pssst, there's a post below the cut)
It's happening. I'm going gray. It's true. In recent months, I've progressively found and plucked more and more gray hairs from my head (about 4 or 5). The aging part doesn't bother me, it really doesn't. What bothers me is that I have virgin hair and while I knew this day would come, I didn't think it would come quite this soon. I do not want to start having to dye my hair. ::::shudder:::: I don't know why I have such an aversion to it but I just do. I don't like having to do anything, I guess. That's where my
immaturity free spirit becomes painfully obvious. It's just that I am very minimalist when it comes to make-up and even more so when it comes to hair products. I keep my fingernails short on purpose and while I enjoy mani-pedi's, I enjoy them for the pampering part. O.P.I. Bubble Bath is my color of choice and has been for years. It's a nice light, natural color. I wax my eyebrows because although I love Frida, I don't want to appropriate her unibrow and I get the occasional facial and massage because it's relaxing. Even so, my skin is shit and I don't care all that much. I swear I'm not fussy or the least bit prissy when it comes to stuff like that.
All that said, I've plucked like 2 gray hairs in my entire life. One I recall specifically because it was discovered by a new hairdresser while we were trying to get pregnant with Elle. You know the drill. How are you? turns into Are you married? and soon it's Do you have kids? and then it's How many? and How old? and Are you going to have any more? and then the child spacing assvice starts to fly and before you know it, you're dabbing at your eyes with the leopard print nylon smock because I don't know what's taking so long! I don't know what's wrong with us! and then they find a gray hair and state the obvious with their thick Texas twang, Well, honey, no wonder! You're under so much stress, not being able to get pregnant and all. You poor thing! Gee, ya think?
So, while that gray hair bothered me for entirely different reasons, these recent ones are the real deal and did I mention I HAVE VIRGIN HAIR!!!
