So when I was a little kid, I had very blond hair. Like, platinum blond. My brother and sister were the same. As we got older, our hair got darker, eventually settling into its final color by my mid-twenties. It was around that time of my life that I was doing a lot of surfing, so much so that the bleaching effect of sun and salt left me thinking that my hair color was still somewhere in the realm of “dirty blonde.” It wasn’t until I stopped spending time in the water that my final hair color was apparent: a dull dishwater brown. It’s not something I particularly cared about, but when helping…um, someone…pick out hair dye one time I made a joke about how I should try lightening mine.
Well, that facetious suggestion became reality this weekend. It was, as you can see, a tragic, tragic, tragic mistake.
It looks even more ridiculous in person.
Last week’s theme was “Divine Intervention” and as usual, the faithful Reds of the Commentist Party each contributed according to their ability. I’ll be back on Friday with a new topic, for now let this playlist keep you company. Request of the Week goes to Duchess with his pick of “Send Me an Angel” by Real Life, with SonOfSpam coming in right on his heels with XTC’s “Dear God”.
Here’s the Spotify playlist. Enjoy!
