Yes I can spell- this is not a blog post about veins but about vains. I gotsta vains!!! I am vainy!!
BTW I should be studying for a quiz tomorrow but …. I am lazy as well as vainy.
You see, when I was 27 or 28 I went to my dear friend Ashley to get my hair done. Not just a cut because Ashley is very great at what he does and he provides hair care that is tip top and fabulous and he is married to my friend J who is equally fabulous and they just bought a house- congrats!! Okay- back on track-
So I went to see Ashley and right in the middle of cutting my bangs he holds up a hair smack dab in the center of the fringe and says ‘Gray!’ This is when I got vainy.
As most of you know I have naturally dark brown hair- the gray does not meld well. That is when I started dying my hair. At first I told myself that it was because I wanted richer, different, color but that is not true– I can not deal with the gray; which is now grays.
At the rip old age of 31.25 I have 7-10 grays. W likes to take credit for most of them but I having a feeling it has more to do with workandschoolandworkandschool.
The grays are mainly on the front of my part for all to see and then a couple others scattered about. I am not ready for it. I do not like it. I tell myself that once I pop out one or two (have not decided on the amount yet) kiddos I will be okay with it. But will I ever be okay with grays? Probably not.
It’s days like this when I feel like I can see my skin melting; losing elasticity and feel my breath get shallower as my lungs atrophy. This is not really happening but I have just started seeing the signs that I am not a 21 year old freebee with the world on my fingertips.
But here’s the otherside. I am so happy here. I don’t want to deage back to 21. 21 was fun, but incredibly stressful and insecure. However, that doesn’t really help with the myskinisfallingoffmy-
This was not supposed to be a diatribe but apparently talking about my grays uncorked a bottle.
So yes, I admit it, I am older, I do have 7-1,0 adequately covered by organic hair dye, grays
