There are two people in my life who have always had to put up with me fondling their hair. My sister Linda and one of my oldest friends Laurie (and not because she is old, but because we have been friends since high school.) Linda was blessed with thick long blonde hair and Laurie has hair so heavy and thick that when she pulls it into a hair tie, it feels like a horse tail. My hair was always really thin and pin straight. I would have given anything to wear their shoes for a day and try on their head of hair.
Nowadays, I am obsessed with anyone who has hair, no matter the length. Blonde hair still stops me in my tracks but any hair will do to get me my fix.
I miss my hair. Like I mentioned, it was thin, straggly and pin straight with no bounce but I would give anything to have it back. My inch long gray hair that I suffer with right now just makes me sad. That's all there is to it. At my last oncology appointment, I asked about coloring my hair and the doctor said that because it is still brand new baby hair growing back that if I were to color it, it would damage it so badly there is a good chance it would fall back out. So me, with my short gray hair, will practice patience and just wait.
Please don't be offended if I see you on the street and fondle your hair.
