But I Get the Dog

Apparently Mr. Eris has created a scandal. It is all over town and the only thing anyone is talking about. I have decided to address this now so you can all hear (read) the story and enjoy it with me. Yes, he bleached his hair.

Our neighbor across the street cuts hair - ours included. She has been bleaching her husband's hair for 3 years and has been begging Mr. Eris to let her do his for months. Last Monday he went for a haircut and came home.... blonde. I was shocked. It's like I sent out Mr. Big and got back Lance Bass. I prefer the brown and have been nudging, nagging, etc. him to grow it out longer. The salt & pepper hair he has is very sexy and I want it long enough to come back a bit, and to hang on to, and to run my fingers thr.. sorry.

But I digress. At the risk of sounding hypocritical, I don't like this male hair color thing. Brad Pitt started this mess with his matching highlights at his wedding and it's just gotten silly. I like to change my hair color often, but I believe it is a woman's right - not a man's.

So, to answer your questions about the hair (and yes, these are actual questions I have gotten):
1. No, it was not my idea.
2. No, I don't hate it. But I don't love it either.
3. No, I do not know what his mother thinks about it and I don't care.
4. Hmmm. That's something to think about. Maybe he is gay.
5. No, I do not think he is having an affair. And if he is, that's fine, he just has to remember the rule in our marriage: the one who cheats/leaves takes the kids. I'm not raising your offspring while you're off with your new girlfriend. You can find a bachelor pad big enough for all four of you!

I love it. Can't wait to see him in person. But he does know that just because he works at a college doesn't mean he has to look like it, right?

Are you going to let Jake follow the trend???

It makes him "hip" and "fab" for the kids at the college. He's the "cool guy" to talk to.
