Taking a ride on the Crazy Train
I did something just a little crazy the day before we left San Diego. Some of you won’t think its crazy at all…it wasn’t a tattoo or those crazy ear hole things. I have one friend who might just have a different hair color every time you see her AND she has tattoos. If there are any more of you like that out there tuning in, then just go ahead and laugh at me and my idea of crazy. I'm okay with that. So the story is that I have started to get some gray around my temples. My mom grayed the same way – racing stripes, like Flash Gordon, at her temples. I have talked about dying my hair for a while when the gray gets bad. It hasn’t gotten bad yet, but one of the J girls is just about finished with cosmetology school, so it was a good excuse to color my hair while we were in CA. Brad has always said I ought to dye my hair red just for fun. He saw some gal on Balboa Island who was a bright red/dark pink that he wanted me to try….um, I screamed and ran away. instead, Jeriel and I picked out a demi-permanent dye (it will fade over 4-6 weeks) that was my own base color with red undertones. What we actually got in the end was more mahogany/purple – probably because of how dark my natural hair color is. So, I now have sort of purple-y hair in the sunshine. And I really like it (Sharon and Carla – no need for the Oops)!! So, for someone who hasn't dyed her hair since she was young and single and did if for fun, it feels like I am taking a ride on the crazy train. Maybe I’ll try pink next time! Just kidding, Mom! Maybe green would be better.
