it's gray.

I debated whether or not this was blog worthy.
But, since I'm only doing this to document our lives, 
(primarily since I have the worst memory ever)
I decided I should.

2 weeks ago today, I found my first gray hair. 
It was late at night and I was getting ready for bed.
I thought maybe my tired eyes were deceiving me. 
They weren't. 
This is what I saw:


I couldn't believe it. 
Here I am with only 3 months left of my 20's and it had to show up.
I mean, really? 
It couldn't wait 3 short months??
I pulled it out and taped it to our bathroom mirror, 
knowing Ben wouldn't believe me unless I had proof.

The next morning, I showed it to him.
He asked, "Are you sure that's not a Jack hair?"
I responded, "I PLUCKED IT FROM MY SCALP!"

Here's a picture comparing my gray hair to Jack's hair:



Nope, not a Jack hair. 

Luckily, I haven't found any more.
Granted, I haven't gone searching either.
I think it's best that way.
