B is for Beige, Batteries & Bees in Bonnets by 


Something really terrible happened to me today.
I went to the hairdresser suffering a Fringe emergency. They were able to squeeze me in.
Whilst sitting under that ridiculous cape the hairdresser with hair that defied explanation even for me, noted, out loud, that my hair was a little grey. Yes I said.

Then I said in a moment of self acceptance that I was thinking of letting it go grey. Salt and Pepper can be sexy right? Silver can be saucy No??

She flipped and said way too loudly “What? You can’t do that!”
Why? I asked. “I don’t want to dye it for the rest of my life”
She ignored me.
“Perhaps” she said “You could try a lighter colour??……”

and then she said it.

“What about a nice Beige?”

BEIGE BEIGE BEIGE BEIGE the word bounced around my brain for a full minute. She obviously has never meet a Limerick before.

So in protest I publish & post the most unbeige photo I have of myself and now retire to wash the beige residue from the inside of my mind lest in contaminate my still healthy colourful bits.

Love You. Hate Beige. :)

    hairdressers just want to safeguard their jobs….you don’t make friends with a hairdresser by wanting to grow your hair or leave it a natural colour
    I am happy to see you are not beige and I look forward to seeing your grey hairs in full glory

  • Only half of my head is grey Soxy. :) I could just walk sideways I guess. :D XX

    hahaha! I had my first grey hair trauma a day before my birthday, it was only one single strand but it showed up SO brightly under the sun, I almost crashed the car trying to pluck it out! Lol, so far I have no more… but I know they’re just waiting there under the surface getting ready to spring out at me! Not sure if I’ll dye them or not, or grow old DISgracefully… ;-)

  • Glad I’m not the only one. I was sure I had more time before that aging business… if I have another glass of wine it’ll all get blurry and my hair will just look… dark. ;)
