Scary, Scary Shit.
This morning, while brushing my teeth, I noticed something new on my face.

Thinking it was a trick of the light, I ignored it. But, it wasn't going away.

I put it out of my mind, I went off on the rest of my morning, the stretching, the run, the kata, etc.

Then, a shower, and shaving off the week or so of beard. It was still there. In fact, shaving had brought it to the fore. I leaned in close to get a good look at it in the mirror, scared as hell that it could actually be what it looked like. And yep. There it was, jutting off my chin at a jaunty angle, not seeming to care the pain that it was causing me.

My first grey hair.

Excuse me while I go and sob for my broken and lost youth.

I keep urging mine to go for the Reed Richards above-the-ear look, and it's slowly working it's way in there, but not enough to be noticable yet.

For some reason, it's my beard where it's becoming fuck all noticeable.

Plus, while I understand the first one is something of a Moment, you do not really get to freak out until you get one *in your nose.* Then you will know fear.

Hell, I could be salt and pepper on top of my head, and wouldn't notice it for a while. Thank Zombie Jeebus that I've been dying it since high school.

Yes, dear, I noticed it there last night actually.

Rather fetching, I thought.

Welcome to being old!

Listen here whipper snapper, I've half a mind to wobble over there and beat ya with my cane. When I was your age we used to shave with sharpened rocks. Don't worry about it, getting your first gray hair is like getting your first pube, it's just the next stage of life.
