Well, I have a little more than an inch of gray. I've officially reached the hag stage. My hair looks awful (Did you know that originally the word awful meant awe-full? I suppose that it still does mean that, but it's hard to believe since it's usually used to express offense.). I've never been very vain about my looks, but really, this is ridiculous.
I think there is a conspiracy out there to keep women from going gray. You see, if you've ever colored your hair to cover the gray, you have to go through this growing out part. Do you know that there is no such thing as gray hair color? I guess that's not a big surprise, since most people don't want to color their hair gray. But, it certainly would be helpful for a more smooth transition to a whole head of gray hair. You'd think that in a salon at least, you'd be able to have gray highlights put in or something. I tell you, it's a conspiracy by the hair color companies against gray-haired women.
The other day Anthony said, "Mom, your hair is really gray. What's up with that?" Poor kid. I said, "Anthony, I'm growing my gray out." "Oh, really?" he said. "Does that mean you're going to go out in public with half gray hair?"
Oh, the horror!!
