You Found What?

by Darcy Rasmussen

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.

Don't worry about it, Darcy. Pretty soon your eyesight will get so bad you won't notice those "curly grays."

No one will notice them if I get the magenta merkin I saw when I was spell-checking the word on answers.com! Thanks for the props gals.

OMG, now I must know what a merkin is... Checking now.

Sad to say that those damn curly grays, well I keep plucking them...

I prefer to call them lovely shiny silvers....
