update on my gray hair (in case you care as much as I do)

In regards to my last post, "Traumatized," in which I found my first gray hair, I have thought of a few things that need to be added or clarified.

1. I have talked to multiple people about the whole graying thing, and it pains me to say this, but I think I am just going to have to accept it. If this is God's will for my 20's, then so be it. (But just for the record, I still don't have to like it.)

2. After I posted "Traumatized,"I got scared that I might have offended some of my wonderful gray-headed readers. But my dad reassured me that anyone reading this blog with gray hair would get a good chuckle out of it. As he put it... "Honey, anyone with gray hair had to get there
one hair at a time. And we all remember our first!." For some reason, that makes me feel better.

3. Then I became inquisitive as to my mom's graying experience. She said her first gray hair was on the front left of her forehead. Great. That's exactly where mine is as well... and CRUELLA DEVILLE's.

(Ahhhh, I can hear the jokes from my students already.)

4. Last but not least, as I was lying in bed last night
agonizing thinking about the whole thing, I remembered... "Hey! I know what I look like with gray hair already!" You see, my SENIOR year of high school, a few of my friends and I decided to dress up as "Senior (Fill-in-the-Blank)" each week. For example, my favorite was the week we bought clothes from the local Mexican grocery store and went as "SENIORitas." Clever, I know. One week in particular, we all found gray wigs and dressed up as "SENIOR Citizens." So for your shear amusement, just know that I'm on the top row, second from the right.

Oh my. Who's idea was this one?
