I tried it.... I tried being semi-old, older, of the senior age. At least that's how I've been feeling lately. I've always highlighted my hair until the last year or so, when I let all the natural grey/silver shine on through. And boy did it shine! And I liked it. I actually loved the color.... Until I would see myself in print, then I would wonder who that OLD person was. Seriously. I could not believe I looked like my grandmother!
A few weeks ago, I ran into an old friend. I said, "hi, Deb!" She returned the "hi," and then about five seconds later, goes, "OH! Nancy! I didn't recognize you!" It was a hard pill to swallow.
I didn't mind being of the senior generation. I didn't mind being 58. I didn't even mind the grey. So why did it bother me so when someone I've known for 25 years, didn't recognize me.....?
Today I got my hair colored, again.... Peer pressure.... It happens to the best of us.... But I don't feel so old, and that's an okay thing.
