One gray hair

At first I convinced myself that it was just a really light hair from spending so much time in the sun, but today I am done with denial. I have 1 gray hair! So now what? Do I dye it? Do I leave it alone and go gray gracefully? Do I embrace it as proof that I am older and wiser? I have never been a vain person, I hardly ever wear make-up. Most of my clothes are from the clearance racks and I usually have a simple hairstyle that lets me only have to worry about getting it cut 3-4 times a year. I didn't freak out when I turned 30, I hardly even noticed when I crept over the closer to 40 mark. So why does 1 single gray hair give me so much to think about. Is it coincidence that it happens to be Hailey's senior year and I am nostalgic anyway? Well I know I am not the first person to find a gray hair, and won't be the last so I guess I will just do what I usually do in life and see what comes next.


  1. You could always do what I started doing as soon as I found my first gray hair (at the age of 25 mind you). I went ahead and started shaving my head!

  2. LOL ya know I have always been curious about what I would look like bald and even seriously considered doing it in high school just to see! ;)
