Out of the Mouths of Babes

I got to sub at the elementary school on Friday. I was outside doing recess duty when one little munchkin said, "Sandee, why is your hair all white?"
I replied, "Because I'm old. But it isn't all white, I have some brown underneath."
She made me show her my brown hair. I did and she announced, "Your hair is young underneath just like you!"
(Yes, I did invite her to come and live with me for the rest of her life and she just giggled and ran off across the playground.)

Sweet girl she is and you too. For you American, white is silver and doesn't look too odd. For me Oriental black to white is old. I hate myself for almost half grey. Have to do color once in a quarter. So irritated. Thought of cutting short and let all grey.
