Yesterday I lost my youth.
I looked in my mirror, tweezers in hand, ready to pluck stragglers when I saw it – a snow white hair growing in my left eyebrow. Soon I’ll be an albino with dark freckles and I’m just not sure how that will look on me. Does this mean I’ll have to start painting on my eyebrows soon? I’ve watched my mother do this for years and it’s not that I don’t love her brows, but I was hoping to avoid feature painting until I’m at least in my fifties. I just don’t want to worry about my eyebrows running when it rains.
Despite fading pigments in my hair follicles, I’ve spent so much time in school these last couple of weeks that I think I deserve another diploma. Maybe one that says Doctor of Crowd Control.
Tomorrow is officially the last day of school, but today may be the day I lose my ever-loving mind. The dog is going berserk. The boys are scaring the girls. The birds insist on pooping on my porch, and I ran out of the “good color” ice-pops. A ginormous brightly colored beetle also got stuck in my hair. I ended up doing a freakish dance on my front lawn that included shaking out my hair and jumping up and down. I’m afraid at least three neighbors saw me.
That I know of.
What will tomorrow bring?
I think it’s officially summer on the fringe. You know what? I need a theme song to the tune of Home, Home on the Range, but that’s a job for FringeMan.
I’ll leave you with this bit of advice my friends….
If you’re perfectly healthy and have signed the responsibility waiver below, buy a box of lemon cake mix and bake it in two round pans. Then spread a layer of homemade strawberry jam between cake #1 and cake #2. For jam recipe click HERE.
Ice with buttercream icing (recipe HERE), except add a few heaping spoonfuls of strawberry jam into the mix. I also only used 2 sticks of butter in this batch of icing and not 3. I’m dieting. 😉
It’s heavenly. Promise. You’ll thank me one day. Your doctor will not.
