(43-27) Red - A Retrospective
If you've read "The Bumpy Ride" before, or if you know me; then you KNOW that I have an EXTRAORDINARY husband. The cause for my praise today is Luis' willingness to color my hair for me. That's right; I said "color my hair." I can't remember exactly when this favor started; but I do know that it's been several years, because I can recall him being ever so patient as he had to apply 2 boxes of color to my long hair. Now that my hair is short it's much quicker and easier; and he swears to me that he really doesn't mind. I know, Whatta Man! And I sure am lucky to have him. So last night Luis gave me a long, overdue dye job. I actually hadn't colored my hair since we were in Puerto Vallarta in May; and with a red color, that's just a sin because they fade SO QUICKLY. Once my hair was dry and I looked in the mirror; I thought the same thing that I think every time; "WELCOME BACK!" Whenever my hair is freshly done I always think I look so much more like myself. And it's odd because as the color is fading, you recognize that, but until you actually color it and then see the difference; you don't realize how bad it had gotten.
