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.
