Some days are great, others are not...but no matter what twists and turns I encounter, you can be sure I'm going to write about it!

Oh My!

This morning, life has slapped me with a twist that I am not prepared for. As I was getting ready for work, I noticed something glistening back at me in the mirror. I took a closer look, and to my dismay, found my worst nightmare...a silvery grey hair. I might start crying while writing this..."Going Grey" is something I have figured wouldn't happen to me...even though my dad was completely grey by age 20, and my mom was completely grey by age 30. I know I sound completely in denial about my hair turning grey because of my parents' premature hair change...but this is just something I am not ready for! Grey hair is not something I want to welcome into my life BEFORE I turn 25.

What did I do with this grey hair? I closed my eyes, shook my head, and then continued on with my morning. I have heard if you pluck the grey, it will start multiplying, and like HELL I want that to for now I am going to pretend like I didn't see it, in hopes of it disappearing on its own (fat chance huh!?)

Yes, I know I am being a baby about this...but again, I am ONLY 24! My hair has been the one good solid thing going for me! If I was married, or in a long-term relationship, I would have a good shoulder to cry on (and possibly someone pointing and laughing at me) but I haven't found that special someone yet, and the thought of starting to date again with a head full of grey monsters sounds a bit daunting.

To be quite honest, I wasn't even going to blog about this today...I was going to continue to be in denial. When I went to blog, I decided it was going to be better to just get it out in the open...


  1. GASP! YOU'RE SO OLD!'s one gray'll be ok. and, it's an old wives tail that if you pull it out they pluck it if it bugs you =) also, you have TONS more going for you than just your hair. Do you want me to make a list??? Happy Thursday...and don't worry about one nasty little hair.

  2. Oh honey, I saw my first gray hair on vacation when I was 12.

    Funny that you posted this yesterday. I woke up this morning and noticed WRINKLES!!!!!

    You can't pluck wrinkles.

    Ick. I'm old.
