It’s A Grey Area

Little Miss Thing, age 7: “Daddy, why do you have white hairs in your beard?”

Danger Monkey, age 10: “He has them in his hair, too. See… there, and there, and there. All over.”

LMT: “They’re kind of silver. How did they get there?”

Me: “They’re called grey hairs. It just happens naturally as we get older. Almost everyone over 40 has some grey hair.”

DM: “Really?”

Me: “Yes, really.”

DM: “So… I’ll get grey hair when I’m old?”

Me: “Yup. It’s totally natural and nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, I kind of like my grey hair.”

LMT: “Everybody?”

Me: “Yup.”

LMT: “Wait a minute… Mom doesn’t have any grey hair.”

Me: (long pause)

Me: “Nope, she sure doesn’t.”
