Yesterday most of the day was spent sewing. I did take time to get a haircut, go to the post office and to Wal-Mart.
Sarah is my friend since first grade and we talk on the phone a lot . . too much! 🙂 We’ve been talking the last few nights about hair color. Isn’t it amazing how long you can talk to a friend about something that doesn’t matter at all? I used to color my hair but have stopped. I’m just not one to go sit at the salon for an hour or more once a month to get my hair colored and I’ve done it myself and though I have no problem with how it looks, I just don’t take the time to do it. I guess getting rid of the gray isn’t important to me. But, I’m getting more gray and Sarah has convinced me I should color my hair.
So, while at Wal-Mart I was checking out the hair color. They used to have a whole lot more than they have now. Maybe everyone else is getting theirs done at the salon or maybe they’re not worrying about the color of their hair. Anyway, I picked up one and put it in my cart. There was a lady across the aisle looking at me and I was wondering if I was supposed to know her. She walked over to me, took the hair color out of my cart, slapped it back on the shelf and said “You do NOT need that!” I said .. well, I’m getting kinda gray and my friend says I do need it! She said “I’m 67 and I don’t color my hair and I’m gray and I don’t give a sh**!” And she pushed her cart and walked off.
I felt like a kid when I was trying to sneak something past my mother (not that I ever really did that!). I watched her walk away and then I went back and got it again and made sure it was under other stuff just in case I saw her again in the store. I keep laughing just thinking . . watch me color my hair and then that woman will show up on my doorstep yelling at me for not listening to her! 🙂
