I was filling out a form recently that asked me my hair color. Immediately I began to put down “brown,” as I’d done my entire life, and realized it was completely untrue. What hair I have is a whitish shade of gray. Has been now for a long time.
Funny how we sometimes picture ourselves as we were earlier in our lives. Everyone does it, not just old folks. My sixth surely looked back at my fifth grade self in wonder and dismay.
So I scratched out brown and wrote down “none.”
