An early birthday present?

I just got out of the shower and am brushing out my hair when out of the corner of my eye I see a small glint of light reflecting off of my hair. I don't think too much of it and go on prepping my hair for the dryer, when I glance into the fog covered mirror and discover something horrifying...a gray hair!

I frantically wipe off the mirror and lean in for a closer look, this has to be light bouncing off of my wet hair, it cannot be what I think it is. After thoroughly examining my hair I am left with the sad reality that as an early birthday present my body has left me a shiny, gray hair. I think that I could do without this years' gift. I haven't pulled it out yet, (I think I am still in shock). Men are so lucky, if they have gray hair they just look more distinguished. Women just look old.

Its just one hair now, but that's just the beginning. Pretty soon I will have a full head of gray hair. Thank goodness for hair dye!

I don't know if you remember that I've had gray hair since I was 13. Even all these years later I still hate it and hate having to dye my roots. I feel for you Chica! Just recently some friends told me I should just let it go and stop the color. When I told my Mom she responded with "no, don't do it. you're still single." lol

Relax. What's the big deal? We all have gray hair....though some of us look distinguished with it.
