To Be or Not To Be!

It's one thing to be old, it's another to look it!

Since I was 17 years old, I have found an occasional gray hair in my head. Naturally, I had to pluck it! "I'm too young to have gray" I tell myself. I mean really, what am I having gray hair in my head at the age of 17 for? I know it's not unheard of but to me, it wasn't something I wanted to deal with.

Meanwhile, I have people either telling me "Don't pluck it cause it will just come back only worse" or I get "It's wisdom!". Who cares!!! No one is gonna look at me at the age of 34, see gray hair in my head and think "Oh wow, she has wisdom!!" NO! They're gonna think "Jeez, she sure has a lot of gray for her age". Personally, I don't care what other people think however, I care how I look! I want to keep my age doggone it!!

Grant it, I'm not all covered in gray. By no means am I even close. The simple fact that I can see them myself is enough for me to pull them out. And the fact that I have been yanking them out for the last 17 years, one by one every time I see one, the quantity has surely surpassed the amount I have ever hoped to come to terms with.

The temples. Yep, just like my dad. The temples is my main spot. Again, since I have so much hair, it hides it. Thank goodness!! Also, the fact that I never put my hair up also benefits me. It doesn't matter anyway, cause why? I'm gonna pluck it anyways!!! And yes, I'm gonna be one of those people that dye their hair cause it's one thing to be old and it's another to look it. I prefer to look my age, not older. :o)

Ugh! I hate having "gray" hair. I am 41 and I am probably 1/3 gray. It totally sucks because it changes the texture of your hair.

So I say thank goodness for my stylist and my flat iron! :)

I have gray hair too! In fact - I plucked 2 out this morning. Boo. The older I get - the more they appear! MAKE THEM STOP!

I know someone in 7th grade that had a lot of gray hair! So...don't worry - you aren't the only one to go gray at an early age! :) mom had some at 13!
