So on Saturday night I was getting ready to go out to dinner with Oscar and I was doing my last minute mirror check before our night without the kids. To my surprise, I found my first gray hair! I couldn't believe what I was looking at! I called Oscar in to verify that I wasn't seeing things - and sure enough - I was right.
My very first gray hair.
I wasn't sure how to feel about this. I mean, I'm thirty years old and I have many friends that are my age that got their first gray hairs years ago. Oscar has had gray hair since his early twenties but you can hardly see them mixed in with all of his thick black hair.
But this was me. My gray hair.
Then I was left with only one decision, one that I didn't think would be so difficult.
Should I pluck it or let it stay?
I thought that when this day came that I would automatically, without hesitation, choose to pluck that sucker.
But I started thinking to myself that this was a new milestone. Even a right of passage. I earned this one gray hair.
Not to mention there's that small little fact that I am slowly losing all of my hair, how could I even think to pluck one out on purpose! If it looked good I would be trying to super glue or staple any hairs that all ready fell out back on my head.
So in the end I decided to keep my lone gray hair. It falls in really nicely with the rest of my bangs. I'm hoping that one day I can get the whole Glenn Close Cruella Deville 'do going on. How cool would that be to have all of my bangs gray?
If you all ready had this happen to you, I'm curious, what did you do? Keep it or pluck it?
