A bit of a side post from my earlier story this morning. I was going to add it in, but I thought it might make it too long. So after thinking about it, and still finding it rather amusing,  I will now write it for your enjoyment.

After Oldest got her hair dye and we were at home, I got to thinking that it would be fun to try a color on my hair. Not put it all over but maybe just the tips or streaks. I have dyed mine since I was a teenager, usually blonde. It needs the roots done desperately right now, but they are gonna have to wait.  Hubby needed to go to Autozone and I tagged along. I told him what I wanted to do and he took me over to Walgreens which is in the same lot. They have quite a selection of the Splat hair dye, so it was hard to pick which one I might want to try. Did I want pink or aqua or oooh purple?? I picked up the pink, then put it back. I was about to just walk away, when I turned back and said what the hell and grabbed one called Berry Blast. I got to the checkout and the girl says, “Gonna go home and color your hair?” “Well, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow. Might just end up returning it, I don’t know yet.” She gave me a confused look. So being the rambling mom that I have become, I had to keep going. “My daughter is going to dye her hair blue, so I thought it would be fun to do a color also.” She smiled at me. But I didn’t stop there. Nope, I  continued on…”But our luck, she will turn into a smurf and I will be a big ole berry.” With that comment I knew I needed to shut the hell up. I laughed like I always do and started to walk away. The girl, I know did not know how to respond. She did manage to squeak out have a good day as I was walking away. I practically ran from the store.

I told Oldest about the conversation. She could not believe it and was so glad she stayed home. She was like “Oh my gosh, mom! Why do you do that?” “Do what?” I asked sheepishly.  “Go on and on, it’s so embarrassing.” “That girl was glad you left.” 

I haven’t opened the box as of yet.  Stay tuned to the next episode of To Dye or not to Dye and see if I break down and return it or go ahead and take the berry plunge…  🙂
