The Horror..(None of it Matters)
With all the going ons in the world, my rose tinted glasses have been looking at some pretty grey and grim sh*t this year,
WAR on IRAQ (still) MORE TROOPS HOME RETURNING IN BODY BAGS, LONDON BOMBINGS, SCOTT PATTERSON VERDICT,
HURRICANE KATRINA, ETHINIC CLEANSING IN SUDAN,
RITA, MUDSLIDE IN GAUTALOUPE, EARTHQUAKE IN INDIA and even damn Rodney King getting arrested for beating his wife
(ain't that some ish?????).

HECK, I'm still not over HAITI and GRENADA HURRICANES and the death toll/damage done.

All pretty darn devasting, but nothing could compare more, to the absolute SHOCK I experienced when I was informed (that's a whole other post *wink*) a while back about something going on that hit right close to home for me....A catastrophe which I thought I got nixed upon discovery, but now I see its back!!!!!
I FOUND A GRAY HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But I do have some good news, I just saved a bunch a money on my car insurance!
(Thanks Gieco and Big shout out to BROTHA BUCK drawing the pic above)

    You are too much gurl.....very funny!

    I have issues with the grey hairs too, where the hell do they come from!?!? Is it old age, or just a lack of sex!?!?!


    ~Smooches~

    It's ok. It happens to all of us. I found my first grey hair when I was 21. If I let my goatee grow out long enough its visable to the naked eye.

    The scourge of getting older. My first gray hairs appeared in my beard at 24. If I let my beard grow, it would be almost all gray. And I'm 34. I look like an old ass man. That's depressing, 'cuz I would look so good with a full beard.

    BB, great to see the post come alive. The art--it was my pleasure.

     
  • At 11/10/05 12:17 PM, Blogger Pizzle said…

    Am I the only one that noticed that she was "informed" of the hair? Did you/they find it in the, ahem, location that the picture would elude to?

    Where's THAT post?! :)

    Without getting too personal, BB, you strike me as a babe that wouldn't even, uh, have the hair to notice...

    How very "Sex In The City".

    As for me, I've been coloring my hair for a few years now specifically because of the silver tint it gets. I'm only 27. Go figure.

     
  • At 11/10/05 3:18 PM, Blogger Msnhim said…

    LMAO... That was hilarious.... you are TOO FUNNY!!!!


    Um by the way no gray hairs here

     
  • At 11/10/05 3:46 PM, Blogger Amadeo said…

    I have many grey hairs...since I was 15...after 21 they started showing up in weird places...like my nose, my chin, my pubes, my side burn..I think that's enough...

     
  • At 11/10/05 4:16 PM, Blogger brooklyn babe said…

    @ Living Single, if you only knew what kind of year I have been having, you'd understand why I choose humor so much (right now).


    @ Pizzle, I try to keep this thang as "G" rated as possilbe, but did you also notice I said "A" hair, SINGULAR.... not PLURAL, Bajan Queen.

    Well in hearing from the men on the set, I'm feel a whole lot more comfortable about this topic.

     
  • At 11/10/05 4:39 PM, Blogger Deirdre said…

    After all the bad stuff was said you still managed to make me smile:)

  • At 11/10/05 7:34 PM, Blogger ByeBye said…

    now that pic is worth a thousand words... I was just posting about the world at its worse with all the tribulations going on. Its a wake call, an awareness that we're living in the ends of time. My heart and prayers goes to all who has loss while trying to survive.

  • At 12/10/05 12:38 AM, Blogger LivingSingle said…

    BB, trust me, I understand lol! Humor is definitely therapeutic, that's why I'm always laughing. We have to laugh to keep from crying sometimes.

    That Pic is the best @ Brotha Buck!

    Girl I have had a gray hair behind my left ear since I was about 3 or 4, I was tempted to pull it out, because it has a mind of its own, but they tell me it's good luck!

     
  • At 12/10/05 4:15 PM, Blogger Sunshine said…

  • At 16/10/05 12:36 PM, Blogger DIVA said…

    Girl you made me spit out my damn protein shake with that pic. TOO DAMN FUNNY!! I am still laughing my ass off. I too have been neglecting my blog buddies sites over the past week and a half. Too busy marrying people off, fighting mosquitoes, and romping with boys that are toxic to my system. FOR SHAME! Well, I am back for now and I 'm glad I stopped by here for a spell cause you made me laugh. As usual. I have to shoot you an e-mail later on today.

    Hope the weekend went well.

    DIVA

     
  • At 17/10/05 4:32 AM, Blogger WIP said…

    Lawd, she done found "pubic" and done gone "public!" You are off the meter on this one.

     
  • At 17/10/05 9:42 PM, Blogger Brownsoul said…

    I've had gray hair...on my head...since I was 13...I think it (the premature graying) runs in my family. Funny thing is, the older I get the fewer gray hairs I notice on my head. I don't know if I'm used to them or if they're going away. Strange, huh?

     
  • At 17/10/05 10:42 PM, Blogger Campfyah said…

    you guys are classic, I sure missed youall while I was gone...ha ha ha you can always cover the grey.
