Shock and awe

Oh people, terrible news!!

The worst!

Awful stuff!

The horror!

The shock to my poor fragile heart!

I think I found a gray pube this morning. I almost died. Am I that fucking old? Jeez. I didn't have time to check it out thoroughly, but I really don't think it was a trick of the light. There it was. The thing that I have dreaded. That I always thought "well, at least I don't have to consider myself really past it until I find a gray pube."

Oh dear god.

I. Am. Officially. Ancient.

At 38. Surely I'm too young to have a gray pube? Surely? Perhaps it just went blonde instead? Perhaps I was having hallucinations? Shurely shome mishtake?

I have a few years on you (42) and thankfully no greys in the more public place where they tend to grow - but I too have found that scrappy grey down below.

My advice...tweez it and don't look back. It's all you can do.

Did you ever see the episode of Sex and the City when Samantha let's her pubic hair grow back in for Smith's benefit and it grows in grey? It's quite funny. Not that this is a light subject by any means.

I can't believe you never had one before!
I agree with Jade- tweeze that mofo & put it behind you. or um you know in the trash or toilet.

1 more day!!

Me too. Infelizemente.
A sad and shocking day.
But then, I'm about 25 per cent gray on top now. And had my first grey head hair at 22.
