Still getting older

So today I am getting ready to teach my class and I look in the mirror to make sure I look professional and grown up, so that people will take me seriously as I'm doling out parenting advice, and I saw it. There it was hanging out right out at the top my head like it had a right to be there or something. It was just looking at me, taunting me, waving lazily at my youth as it slid one more inch away down the slippery slope of life. And what you ask did I do about this intruder in my hair. This one single, wiry GRAY hair, I reached up and forcefully yanked it out. I will not be beaten that easily.

I found my first gray hair the day after my 25th birthday. It made me cry.

Oh No!!! 10-year reunions AND gray hair?!?! What the heck? As I wrote my little blurb about myself on our 10-year reunion site I thought, "This is so incredibly BORING!!!" I hear you on the saving the world thing by June 9th. I wish I could be there with you.
