I am growing a beard.
Got your attention, didn't I?
Yep, I come from a hairy people. I inherited a lot of great things from my Northern German ancestors. I'm industrious, I love to sing, I have a loud hearty laugh. But one of the less than great things is that I am a hairy person.
When I was in my teens my mother sent me to a Swedish electrologist. One thing you should know about the Swedes...they are NOT a hairy people. So for a woman who never had one follicle of unwanted body hair to enter a profession based on unwanted body hair...well, lets just say she had no clue about how much current to fire down the hole, so to speak. The other, more cruel reality is that electrolysis is not as permanent as one would hope.
So now I'm in my 40's, and my moustache is starting to make a comeback. But more troubling is the beard. That started as one prickly hair on my chin when I was 17. Now, if left untended, I could raise a fairly reasonable goatee...
Yes. The hair on my face is getting blacker with every day. The hair on my head is turning white.
That started at a young age as well. I was 22. It was my wedding day. My mother's hair dresser was doing something so evil to my head I've never done it since. and she, very nicely, pointed out my first patch of gray hair, along the hairline, right above my right eye.
Did you see that? Platinum blond halo. How pretty is that?
And then she said, "Well, that's just the angel in you shining out."
Bonus, she said she could do something to make my hair look less...tri colored. At a discount.
