Look, Ma! I'm Invisible!
Not really, but sometimes I think I am. Yesterday I decided to celebrate the completion and planting of two raised beds by coloring my hair. What? Doesn't everyone???? I go from thinking that natural is best - and lowest maintenance - to thinking I look washed out, all shades of grey. So I became a "Golden Brown". I would say that I'm a DARK golden BROWN. It is about 5 times darker than my usual hair color. Later in the afternoon, when I flounced over to a friend's to deliver extra pepper plants and a basic beekeeping book, I waited for her reaction - which I felt would be positive and fervent. She didn't notice. Now, she had also been outside working like a slave for three days. Maybe she was too tired to notice. I mean, when I looked in the mirror this morning, I was shocked! I had forgotten I colored my hair, of course. I sashayed into the office this morning and none, not a one of my co-workers said boohoo, omg. Nothing. Nada. So, therefore I must be invisible. Or....dare I say....the color is so gawd-awful that no one wants to comment? Nah. (There will be no before and after photographs. I never allow photographs of myself. They will steal my soul.)
