Embracing the Gray

Spoiler Alert:  This is about gray hair.  My gray hair.  And those who know me know that I don't have much of it, but too bad.......this is my blog and I can write whatever I want.  This is not a contest.  If you have more gray hair than me, bummer for you.  Write your own blog about it.  I say this in all love :)


Am I Asian enough to pull this off in 25 years?


For the last 20 years I've sort of kept a secret.  It's not that I have anything to hide.  You know, sometimes you can do things and the world would never know about it unless  you spill the beans.

I'm spilling the beans.

For the last 20 years, I've been pulling out the few gray hairs that I have.  I'm sure there are no more than 10 to 20 of them.

Don't be grossed out or self righteous about it.  Some of you do it too.

Now I've learned a few things about this pulling gray hair business.

1.  They do grow back.
2.  The number of gray hairs do not multiply from said pulling.
3.  You do not go bald from pulling a few here and there.
4.  This is NOT and indicator of OCD.  Don't go there.

So I made a decision about a month ago.  No more pulling.  That's right.  Embrace the gray.  Let it grow.  I still don't have much.  I can color if I want, but that's not something I would do specifically due to the lighter strands growing in.  Serious.

I have all this gray coming in at about an inch high now and of course this means they pretty much stand straight up.  But it's only 10 to 20 strands.  No more than that.

I can do this............proudly.........

Yeah.  Too Much Information today.  Sorry.
