Gray Hair

I guess it was only a matter of time until I found one. This morning, while inspecting my slowly growing beard, I discovered a gray hair. In fact, I noticed four white ones springing from my chin and cheek. I'm a little upset really because this is my first attempt at the beard and now it's marred by the appearance of these hairs. Only a few weeks ago I was making fun of my 31 year old friend who has a few gray ones in his beard and I'm even younger.

It's not that big of a deal, but I wonder how many are hiding in my light-brown (and in some light ginger-ish) hair. My mom is in her mid-fifties and still has the luxury of hiding a few in her locks. I guess I'd have to blame my dad. He started graying at thirty and now has a totally gray beard with salt and pepper hair.

We'll see what happens, but I'm going to keep it though. It'll be another thing for Koreans to look at.

Gray hair, you George? Remember when you wondered in jest why people do not dye their hair gray?
