As we were all sitting together eating lunch the other day, I told Joe and Dot that I recently discovered my first grey hair.
Me: “I was getting a haircut and when I looked down on my cape I noticed a patch of grey hair, so of course I had to stop at Fred Meyer on my way home so that I could buy a new hair color right away!”
Joe and Dot laughed.
Dot said, “When I first started turning grey I would pluck the grey hairs out with tweezers.”
Joe: “Well you’d better not tweeze out your grey hairs now! You’d have to pluck off your whole head!”
Dot: “So would you!”
Joe: “Men don’t have to cover their grey. It just makes them look more distinguished.”
Dot rolled her eyes.
Me: “Some men do color their hair nowadays. There is even an entire section of hair color just for men at the store.”
Joe: “Is that right?”
Dot: “I saw an old geezer downtown one time who had jet black hair and it just didn’t look right at all. Especially since his eyebrows were grey. I thought that was very suspicious.”
Joe: “Well what was he supposed to do? Pluck out his eyebrows?!”
