Well we had to laugh today, the hairdresser and I. A grey hair decided to just lie blatantly across the top of my head, shining in the salon spotlights. I had noticed it, was waiting for my hairdresser to as well. When the question came about what are we doing today, she said a nice cut again and highlights maybe?
I said ' you've seen it haven't you'? At that point we laughed and talked about the prospect of some highlights in the future, just because it might look good and not necessarily to cover my one grey hair. We just pretended it wasn't there. I've actually been waiting for it to come along, not done bad for saying I'm approaching the big 5 'O'. I found one last year but that was neatly tucked away at the back and seemed to decide not to take my greyness any further.
I'm not fussed at all really, thought it would just make a good light hearted subject to giggle about, goodness knows we need a bit of that at the moment. the news seems a bit gloomy and the weather went a bit rainy today.. So as I sipped my cappuccino and announced to the rest of the salon that this was a special moment that I was now sharing with them I thought it would make a great poem too...........
The Grey Hair
Haven't seen one for a while
but there it was, sat with the rest of my hair just waiting for a style
My hairdresser she suggested some highlights
we laughed as we both knew
What was lurking on top of my head
blatantly there in full view
It was silver and shiny
in fact it's still there
They say not to pluck it
or more will accompany it, my scalp they will share
Not dipped into dye or tried a blue rinse
The colours look nice and the choice is immense
Oh I've done well to get away with it so far
there is always 'Nice and Easy' or one from a jar
It was always going to happen, not a sign of old age
It's very distinguished
silver is all the rage
I may keep it going
become a silver foxet
It's good enough for Scofield
Au naturel - it's the furure, you bet!!
Thanks for reading, I will return tomorrow for 'Free from Friday' but for now take care.....
