Lady Ba-Ba

Lady  BABAThe other day, I found a website called “My Web Face” and thought I’d play with the drawing tools. To the left is what I came up with. Not exactly a “real” likeness is it?

Since I was forced into “retirement” three years ago because I couldn’t find ANY good job, I’ve been wondering whether I should grow out the grey hair that has been accumulating at the roots for several years.

Unfortunately the picture to see what it MIGHT look like clearly failed.

So when does one own up to the fact that she or he is “old” enough to have gray hair when there’s plenty of chemicals out there to keep one’s appearance looking “young?”

After all, there’s no good way to hide the fine lines and wrinkles without having to rob a bank for a high quality “age defying” cream. And what about those ugly skin tags that seem to pop out wherever they want to? Worst of all, there’s “age spots” that show up on hands and face. And I won’t even get into the ugly white hairs that pop out of my chin! Wouldn’t it just be easier to accept the fact that I’m not a “spring chicken” and have become an old hen?

I don’t know which way to turn. When I color my hair, I seem to get the stuff everywhere –it has even ended up on the walls, when I am extremely careful. I would much rather be pampered in a saloon, but our meager budget doesn’t provide for such vanity. I need to spend the $40 or $50 for groceries instead. So, do I let vanity fly out the window the same way I’ve lost my waist?

So help me out here. Should I swallow my pride and let the grey grow out? OR, should I continue my vanity for a few more years before I hit old age–like 80?
