Yes my hair is growing back at a reasonable pace. Unfortunately it is not the color I would choose. And what color is it? Well, the other day my hubby and I were walking the dogs when we noticed a dead mouse on the sidewalk. Oddly enough, dead mouse gray is exactly the color of my current hair...with splashes of lighter gray on my front cowlick! My stylist, Cindi, offiered to dye my head...thus releasing my inner blond. But my kids pointed out that a bleachblond shorn head looks a lot like a high school hockey team trying to bond for the championship playoff. So, for right now I have no plans to change the color at least until it grows a bit more.
And my bigger dilemma now is how to present my current look to my Dad. We will be visiting him this weekend in Traverse City for Fathers Day. We have not told him anything about my cancer...at age 94 he doesn't really need to worry about me. During a previous visit, I wore one of my wigs. And he never said anything about it. Should I just tell him I have cut my hair very short for the summer? Should I tell him I am trying to go back to my natural color by getting rid of all the old color? Or should I just tell him I lost a bet in a radio stunt? So many possibilities!
