    White Hair

    I just pulled a white hair out of my normally reddish-brown beard.

    What does it mean?

    I'm scared.

    Red hair goes white fast. My beard used to be Opie red. It was Santa white by the time I was 40.
    So, basically enjoy the beard while you can.

    chemotherapy is a good way to get your red hair back. otherwise a magic marker can do wonders.
    at least gray hair doesn't hide on the back of your head like baldness, it's right there where you can see it.

    That was not a hair wise guy.
    That was the main thread knotted on the top of your head keeping all your internal organs from sliding out your ass.

    It all depends on what your grandkids think of the gray hair.

    It means that:

    -Soon, you will be able to walk around big box stores such as Best Buy, and the employees will leave you alone.

    -Cops in their 20s will call you "sir".

    -Generally, people will take you more seriously.

    Just about to turn 35 and most of my beard is gray, I just keep it shaved. I bought a box of "just for men" to take care of the gray on top. Haven't got around to trying it yet.

    I don't know what to do about the white chest hairs though.

    Hell no. It means you get to wear slippers in public with your shirt not buttoned correctly as you criticize what anyone under the age of 30 is saying.

    hey, at least you aren't balding
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I found another one. I'm only 26. This must be a sign of things to come.

    Just to explain, I got a promotion a week ago, we just purchased a house, and our baby is due in September. Stress levels are just a little above normal.
