How to freak out your 13 yr old
One of the sublime delights of being a parent is totally screwing with your 13 yr old's mind. I've been teasing him for a while...telling him I was going to dye my hair purple to celebrate being 40 and he kept telling me he wouldn't be seen in public with me like that (and that's suppose to be a deterrent?). I managed to achieve the delightful level of total 13 yr old freak out on Friday. It was made even more enjoyable by the fact that he wasn't upset or mad. In fact, he was glad to see me. He was just totally weirded out by me. All I had to do in order to have this sublime experience was dye my hair. I went from this...
to this... My hair didn't take the dye evenly but I still really like it. I may go after a completely purple color next time.
