Guess what I got for Christmas
A white hair.
Yes, my first one. If it were gray, I could say that it's a sign of wisdom and maturity (yeah, right).
But it's not even gray, it's pure white.
I noticed this because I was in the bathroom last night looking at my roots, contemplating my natural color (which hasn't existed since I was 15). I've been letting my hair got a little longer than I normally would since I'm not at work. I was looking at my awful roots when I noticed a shiny strand starting at the very top of my head. At first I thought that maybe it's blonde. Really blonde. But since I have 2 inches of roots, that wouldn't be possible.
I plucked that sucker out and called my mother, hoping for some kind of reassurance. Instead I received boisterous laughter on the phone. She said "It's a right of passage."
Look here lady, I'm not ready to pass through that door yet!
