Don't pull out the greys!

So, do you know when you I officially started feeling as if I'd lost my youth? It was the day when I was (uh hmmm) shaving, and found a grey hair. No, not on my head.

Now, I don't know how many of you watched Sex in the City (probably all of you), but the episode that stuck out the most for me was when Miranda found a grey hair in her unmentionable area. She was dating that young guy and thought he would think she was old if he saw her grey hair.

Guys, I FREAKED! I called my best friend, still sitting spread eagle on the toilet.

"I got OLD Pubics!"
"Girl, I got OLD pubics! I have a grey hair......... in my pubic area!"
I hear a guffaw from the other end of the phone and I can't help but laugh myself to tears.

I was so hurt by that one little grey hair. I mean, I don't even have any in my head that I can see. Maybe every now and then, but not really.

Now I didn't go to the extents of Miranda and dye the hair, ultimately turning it into a bright red Bozo the clown kitty kat. No, not me. But I did go straight for the tweezers and yank that baby out! Before Hubs, who was in Korea at the time, had a chance to see it.

And that's what I've been doing every since. Yanking them out. Except now, there isn't just one. Oh No!!! More like 3 or four. I've become a strong believer of the old saying that you should not pull out your grey hairs because 2 more or going to grow in its place.

Now didn't we establish that men don't that much attention to the gift wrapping?

Doesn't it suck to have greys pop out when you have darker hair?!! I am envious of all of the fact maybe I'll become one, upstairs, and down lol.
