Gray Hair (Plural)

Yesterday, while driving, I ran my fingers through my hair on the side of my head, and two long, thick gray hairs popped out.

And today, I turn 28.

  1. Find a good colorist and you too can live in blissful ignorance oh how much gray you really have.

    Of course it probably looks way better on you than it does on me.

    Happy birthday, sir. :)

  8. Happy birthday, Charlie! As for the greys, I've had a streak right up front since I was 19. Add magnesium to your diet--it is supposed to help. Since I am a fake redhead I just don't worry about it too much. ;)

    Nice to meet you briefly in Vancouver.

  10. Happy birthday! So good to meet you. I liked you instantly. I hope this is not a problem, and I hope you continue to stalk me and send me missives (and poems?) and I will do the same.

    I have a sneaking feeling, being 27 myself, that 28 is going to be an amazing year. So go on, be amazed!

    Big love,
    Ali

  11. Jacob says to tell you "Happy Birthday!" too. Also, he says he would be happy to add you to his list of stalkers.

    P.S. I found one silvering hair two days ago--it wasn't even the full monty! It was still black partway down.

    Ah, well.

  13. Happy happy birthday! Gray hairs are, uh, distinguished, yeah, distinguished, that's it.

    (I actually think most people look more attractive with a bit of gray, but I've been called weird before.)

  14. Happy Birthday, Charlie!

    28 is not a bad age. I think I remember liking it quite a bit.

    Keep it up, and give Sarah Vap my best.

    Good fun meeting you the other night, too. I wish we'd had more time/less Brenda Shaugnessy interference.

    Incriminating pictures to be up soon at my blog...

  18. Oh happy birthday Charles!

    I'm sure the gray hairs are just souvenirs of your time at AWP. I will wish you a year of happiness and if not happiness than an endless bottle of Grecian Formula.

    Cheers to you!

  19. Happy 28th! As a 28yearold myself, I can vouch that it ain't that bad.

  20. Happy birthday! If it makes you feel any better, I've got at least five gray hairs sprouting as we speak. It's freaky, huh?

  21. Gray hair? Inconthievable!

    Happy Birthday, Charlie! I'm still grappling with being a grown up, I'm not ready for worrying about being old! I turn 28 in December, I'll let you know how that goes.
