One of the other Blogs I belong to, asked a question the other day: Had I ever been Mistaken for Someone I Wasn’t? And what was my opinion on ironing – did I still iron? Interesting questions……
I have always had prematurely grey hair – started when I was 16 – 17. It was not
throughout my hair, it was concentrated at the front.
It is not the salt and pepper
type of grey, it is brighter, some people say platinum, but I’m not sure about
that….. Anyway, I was about 35, and dating my now-husband, who is 16 years
older than me. So, I’m 35, he’s 51, we went sightseeing through a large, almost
castle like place. Anyway, he was already quite grey and the senior rate to
tour this building started at 55 – bargain price. We get up to the ticket
counter, the person working behind the counter looks up and says: “Two
seniors??” WHAT!!! I called my hair stylist the next day and booked an
appointment to get my hair coloured…….
As far as ironing goes, I did iron in my single days. Somebody had to!! But, once we were married, my husband did all the ironing – and such a crease he can get!! See, here’s the trick, marry a (retired) policeman – used to ironing uniforms – you will never measure up – so he does the ironing!!!! JOY!!!
