Since my birthday...

Red And White Wine by Petr Kratochvil
I've noticed two strange (interesting?) things since turning 24 almost a month ago.

First of all, I haven't been carded when going out for drinks with the boyfriend. This is a big change from that one time that he got carded along with me...which was particularly amusing for me, because he's about twice my age.

It's just strange to not have my ID requested when I get a beer. I mean, Oregon law requires everyone who looks under 26 to be carded. So, maybe I aged two years overnight?

Speaking of aging overnight...

The second funny thing happening is that I've got more white hairs. I'm not kidding. I'd already found one or two in the last year, but now I've got more. I'm hardly going silver, and I doubt most people would notice them, but they're there. And I notice them.

Before anyone asks, no, I'm not pulling them out. Or dying them (yet). I sort of take my mom's attitude towards them, which is that I earned them and I'm keeping them. That being said, when I get enough of them years down the road, I may dye them red. A brunette with red highlights... :) I'm afraid that I may have been planning that for a few years already.

I started greying when I was 25. It comes in pretty slowly at first. You should be good until you're 40!

I'm not so sure that the white hairs will hold off until I'm 40. My (younger) brother has acquired a noticeable amount of white hair over the last year or so. I'm afraid that it could be in my genetics to go white young. lol

Then again, maybe those genes skipped over me. Time will tell.

Heh. I did get carded a couple days ago. The woman was really apologetic about it, and was then surprised at how young I am when she saw my ID.
