FOWC with Fandango — Natural

WYSIWYG was a very popular acronym years ago and I’d like to think that describes me pretty well. There are no airs and graces, and I am literally what you see, lumps, bumps, warts and all.
Mum and Dad took in students after I got married, and one had a sister who was only allowed to come to this country to study provided she stayed with my parents. It was some accolade and a credit to them as his parents came over to meet mine!
Anyway, in keeping with the word prompt, she asked me what number my hair was.
A little baffled, it soon came to light she believed my hair came out of a bottle when in fact it was my natural colour.

It still is, though a lot more peppered now, but my sister has always been far from happy that I still have it, as she went white after having her second daughter in 1982.  She has since played with various colourants ranging from pink to orange, though I think the latter was an error due to a conflict of chemicals.
This is me in December 2016, and my hair is still as long.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Wow! I am trying to grow my hair that long. Gradually getting there.

    • I always had short hair at school. This is the longest I can remember having it. I’d love to be able to sit on it.

        I always had short hair before my cancer but once it started growing again I couldn’t bear going to the hairdressers. Mine is black and quite curly

      • Mine has always been dark, almost black in my younger days, and goes lighter in the summer. I cut it myself, but it never seems to grow very fast!

      • blindzanygirl says:

        Yes I was born very dark. Olive skin too but I have no Spanish or Italian in me as far as we know!

      • My skin is quite pale, but saying that, it has always been pretty good.

      • blindzanygirl says:

        My skin was TERRIBLE when I was a teenager. I thought it could never possibly recover. It did take a long time. But now, people tell my skin is so young looking and so good. God only knoes how that happened lol
