I am really getting old! As I was combing my hair in front of my dresser mirror, I noticed some small stubs of grayish-silver-ish hair sprouting in perfect symmetry on my hairline. How could that happen? I dyed my hair just a few days ago. That should have covered the gray hair, I thought aloud.

"Mom, you used the cheap-o hair dye and that does not work on gray hair", said one of the daughters.

"A 395 Php bottle of dye is still cheap?" I asked.

"Mom, remember when you used to go to Frank Provost or Basement for a hair dye job? That cost you tons!" added one of the daughters.

Oh well, those were the days... back when diesel was 15.00 Php per liter. I might as well do things cheap for there is a world wide recession and economic crisis going on.

"Ethan, can you please pluck out my gray hair?"

" No mom, that's hard."

"I'll pay you one peso per gray hair that you get". Gosh! This was what my mama used to say to get me into plucking her gray hair.

"What? One peso? I'll do it for 100 pesos per hair" said the enterprising Ethan.

"Okay then. Just pluck out half a gray hair". Fifty pesos is all I can afford.

  1. My mom used to bug my son to pluck her white hair but mom gave up when she figured out that it wasn't a good idea (laging masakit ulo nya after every session).

  2. domjullian: really? i just have to wait and see for not one gray hair has been plucked yet.
