Greybeard

We were doing some painting at the kids' house yesterday — grey paint. While I admit that I frequently get as much paint on me as on the object of my endeavours, I also admit to being very surprised to see how much I had apprently gotten on my beard when I looked in the kids' bathroom mirror. I noticed several grey splotches.

However, when I got home and looked in the better light of my own mirror, I realized that I hadn't dripped paint on my beard at all — the colour was totally natural!!

Is that my problem? too much bald paint?

Yeah!! I know the problem and on top of that my wife always makes me wear the shirt with the belly!
Enough said!

I have the same thing happen with white paint - I think it is the paint, but nope, it is just those curly white hairs coming through...

Oh dear, dear AC, I cannot read a word here. Blurry and tiny, but your photos are great. It may not warrent your changing anything, as my computer is dying anyway....

Bonita said...

Thanks for the e-mail, AC. I tried it, and now it works perfectly...one of my kids must have switched it to 'smallest', rather than normal. Ahhhhh, what a relief!

Ah, well, it happens to the best of us. Just consider yourself amongst the "distinguished" group.

Well it's a good thing you weren't using darker paint then isn't it? You'd have probably panicked when it wore off and you thought you aged really fast.

Gray makes a man look distinguished. Congratulate yourself.
