Lucky, crazy, and grey

I stopped to get a hair cut on the way home today.  As much as I loooooove to spend a few hours at a salon getting pampered, it’s usually (i.e., “always”) not in the budget, especially because my short-short hair grows ridonculously fast.  So once a month or so I toddle over to the First Choice near the St. Laurent mall.  It’s staffed by very friendly and efficient women with lovely accents and gentle hands.  

So I’m sitting there, draped in my black sheet,  eyes closed, enjoying the clean shampoo smell and the fingers softly ruffling my hair to shake out the loose bits.  She asks me if I’m happy with the cut.  I open my eyes, which are still trained downwards at my own lap. 

Oh my. 

There was an awful lot of grey hair littering that black sheet.

I stared at it for a second.  I know I’m going grey; I have been for several years.  This was the first time it weirded me out to look at it, though. 

It kind of hit me: I’m 30 years old, I’m going grey, and I’m going BACK TO SCHOOL.

I don’t know if I’m lucky, crazy, or both.
