It’s finally happened. It’s been coming for nearly 20 years now, so I don’t know why I’m surprised. It started in college with a few strands at my forehead, no doubt spurred on by lack of sleep, poor nutrition, and too much—well, just too much. And today, looking at my nakedness in the mirror, I discovered it... a short ‘n’ curly gray. My God, the end is nigh! I wonder if I should pluck (ow), Brazil (OW!) or simply mail-order a merkin?
Darcy Rasmussen, whose full catalog is here, revels in the fact that life is embarrassingly funny sometimes.
