I was having major phone problems yesterday and missed a Microblog Monday. I’m sad about that. Boo! My phone is my only Internet connection right now.
In other news, I think I just found my first real gray hair. I have been expecting them for a long time now since my mom started getting them at 21. I am less than 6 months to 30. In my family, we call that Damn Near 30.
The fact that I shave my head every 2-3 weeks may have been masking the color change. But, I did try to grow it out 3 winters ago with only a few months of success. One would have been spotted then! My hair is blond but I have been getting black wiry ones since I was 19 or so. A cousin said that first hers turned wiry and then they turned gray. My hair is naturally really thick.
Actually, I think this hair was white. I say was because I did what any sensible Damn Near 30 year old would do and pulled it out to examine it. I don’t have anyone to look at it for me while it is attached anyway! Sigh.
Definitely white hairs. There are more on my temples. This is what I get for letting my hair get this long. Not that I am vain or anything… Maybe people will start treating me like an adult now!
