Grey (Hair) Anatomy

hair pluck(I saw this note from one of my blogs a few years ago. It gave me a good laugh as I try to recall that particular incident. I thought this story was also very timely since I will be celebrating my birthday again in a few days. Hope you enjoy reading it as I am sure some of you could even relate to it. ūüėÄ )

This morning, as I was blow drying my hair, I found a lump of grey hair on top of my head as if they were happily meeting together to recruit more new friends.

“Oh my gosh! How did it multiply this fast?” I said to myself¬†in utter disbelief, while I¬†search frantically for my tweezer. This¬†is not happening. I thought.

Pluck! Ooh!¬†That hurts! Here’s another one.

Pluck! Ouch! How did these little grey hair reproduce so quickly?

Pluck! Hmmm… It must be the shampoo.

Pluck!¬†Of course!¬†It’s the hair dye!

Pluck! Oh wait! Or the hair treatment I just had.

Pluck! Well, they say¬†grey hair is a sign of having accumulated so much wisdom over the years. So, it can’t be that bad.

Yeah, right!

Then¬†came¬†out¬†what the ‘undenial’¬†has been pointing out to the ‘denial’…

Pluck! Alright! I am old!

I’ll¬†be turning 33 next month. Can you believe it? “I am 33.¬†I am 33 years¬†old! Did I say¬†33?¬†Yes, 33!” I have to say it over and over¬†until the blood in my veins, the nerves in my brain and the air¬†in my lungs tell me, “Yes, you are¬†33!”

I just find it so funny¬†when people ask me how old I am, I¬†will always have to stop and think for a second,¬†work back the present year and the year I was born. Seriously! I stopped counting at the age of 25! Can you blame me if my heart felt as childlike as I were back¬†then? I don’t see anything wrong with that, do¬†you? ūüėÄ

I just thought after this morning’s¬†plucking exercise with my new found¬†grey friends¬†living on top of my head, has had me¬†thinking that… Yes, I have to face the reality. I have to look after myself more now. Be more watchful with what I eat. Be more active physically. Be healthy.¬†Be wise. Be good. After all, I am not getting any younger! Oh,¬†did I mention that I’m buying a¬†new hair colour tonight? I think might go blonde! What do you think? ūüėÄ

Not getting any younger! LOL
Not getting any younger! LOL!
