|I forgot to bring a plastic bag to the salon|
so for a full day my ponytail rode shotgun.
Or so I thought...
As I researched where to send my hair this time around (I don't always send it to the same organization), I discovered that the "six donations = one wig" language had changed. Now, every organization claims it takes at least 10 donations to make a wig.
I'll be honest - this news crushed me. I was so close, or at least I thought I was so close, to reaching my goal of donating a full wig. And to find out that I'm really only halfway there? Disheartening.
Unfortunately, I don't think I'll make it to 10 donations. My hair texture has changed over the years, becoming finer and drier. My hair grows more slowly than it once did, stops growing at a shorter length than when I was younger, and yes, is turning grayer and grayer by the day. (Thank you, Will and Hallie, for that gift.) I have a sixth donation in me, but after that, I'm done.
Six will have to be enough.
Yes, I'm wearing a tank top and Will's shirtless on December 14th.
