Shades Of Grey

Occasionally my husband does odd things in public that both make me want to weep and make me love him more.

He also likes to spot grey hairs in my crowning glory (thanks Mum). Most of the time he does this at home, but because he's over a foot taller than I am, it's very easy for him to look at the top of my head when we're out.

The other day I was looking at fabric and he was standing behind me. "Ooh don't move! I see a grey one!", says he... and before I can say a word, he's pulled it out* and was admiring his handiwork.

Then we see the lady who'd been standing next to us. She looked at the both of us like we were completely nuts (I don't blame her) so I explained to her that my husband likes to pull my greys. She gave me a feeble smile and walked away as quick as her legs would take her.

We're so lucky we found each other.

* I know pulling out the greys mean more will come to its funeral but it's THERE. It needs to go away asap.

That is too funny. My husband feels a need to do the same thing to me--in public. :)

Forget that more will appear, I would be more afraid of going BALD. Eventually, the hair follicle gets damaged and they don't grow back. I worked with someone who wanted to pull my gray hairs, because of course they were a different texture and stood straight up. I would yell NO and run away!

I am at peace with my ever-growing population of greys. I figure I've earned every last one of the b*******s!

Gray hair is a way of life for me. So many, I just don't know how many. Dye them every month. If my hubby pulled them out, I would be bald!! Hopefully all that you will have to cope with is just a few.

Hi Audrie, I totally understand about the greys since they are so much obvious among our blacks! We do the same too.

did he even check to see if you guys were alone before he did that?! *face palm* terrible!!

Lol! Martin does the same to me in public! If we're alone, I let him "de-grey" me, but when there's people around, it can look like one ape finding bugs on another ape ;o).

Btw, it's a myth about more grey hairs sprouting after pulling one out, so no worries on that. Getting bald might be the concern instead, but as I remember, you have pretty thick hair anyway ;o).

Jon and I totally do this to each other (unfortunately, all the time, as more grey is sprouting by the day!)
