Getting a Peek at Caution's Mind

A week ago, I was a former natural brunette living the good life as a getting there blond. My getting there blondness was an unexpected gift for me. People noticed. They liked it. I mean people I didn't think looked at hair (my pastor) noticed and liked it. Most importantly, I liked it. And then there were the collateral perks: my blondness looked wonderful in shades of pink, a color I had never worn with great success. So over the last year every clothing purchase I made was pink-related. Smart move, huh?

Last week, I was feeling old, fat, under appreciated, clumsy, unpopular, failure-esque, and that was just the beginning. My dark roots was apparent, my hair was shapeless and I had just enough coins in my pocket to do something about it.

That may have been a mistake.

I sat in that chair, and heard the question:

"So what are we doing today?"
Do you know what I answered?
Come on. I bet you do.
Take a guess!

Shave it all off? Let's go red? Pink hair would be nice today?

Did you say, "Surprise Me"????? Can't wait to see the photos......

Oh, please show and tell soon! Did you go frosted and streaky?

I admire the daringness of a brunette to go blond.....I've never had the nerve. I can muster up covering the annoying gray; how long that will work is anyone's guess.

Hope you're having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Your house is surely all festively decorated for Christmas by now!

I haven't a clue. But all the other comments seem reasonable.

Maybe you said what I always do: Hey you're the professional--why are you asking me? Pictures please.

Waiting to see.... I used to go blond but a couple years back started going darker and darker. Now instead of dark roots showing through I have gray!!

Maybe you said what I have on occasion said, "I'm ready for something new!"

Most of the time I've liked the results. But, the time or two I did NOT are the times I remember the best!

Looking forward to the rest of this story and, of course, a picture.
