tequila sunrise

Despite the enthusiastic response at home, the hair is garnering mixed reviews in public.
I had forgotten that I was to begin acting as Board Secretary for the church, and so spent tonight sitting in front of twelve or so older-than-me people who spent two hours staring at my head.

They didn't say 'Whippersnapper', but it was in the air.

I probably won't go this bright again - strictly because I keep catching sight of myself and thinking 'Wow, that's some bold hair! Oh, wait....that's me, isn't it?' - but it's a hoot watching people's eyes slide up and down and try to avoid being caught gawking.

Especially when they're probably wondering secretly what on earth possessed me.

But I still love it.

I think it is AWESOME, but then I've already told you that. I'd do blue streaks in mine if I wasn't dirt poor.

I do too! It has a kalidescopic quality to it. Plus, it shines!

Ahh, poke em if they can't take a joke. Do the crazy hair as long as you love it. It's YOUR hair.

You are still YOU no matter what color your hair is. Got to be shocking once in a while, just to see if people are paying attention!
