Bye Bye Blondie

Today is the end of an era.  The end of the blonde MorganU.  The end of ego boosting cat calls, free drinks and valid excuses for my moments of sheer brainlessness.
Tomorrow I embark on a new journey.  I venture into the often underrated world of the brunette.  I am saying goodbye to my inner Marilyn and introducing the world to my new attitude - a- la- JLo.  Why you ask, am I trading in sun kissed perfection for a more sultry look?  Why would I mess with a good thing (god she is vain), because friends, being a blonde is hard work.
Every 6 weeks I look in the mirror and realize that my blonde locks are now a shade or two greener than intended.  I have an inch of mousy brown part splitting my head in two.  I look washed out by 3 pm when my bronzer has all but vanished- tanning nothing now but the white shirt I am wearing.  I look less like Barbie and more like...well...anemic. 
So, tomorrow I will march into the salon.  I will slap the photo of JLo on the sink counter and demand to be brunette-a-fied.  I will ignore the wary glare I am sure to get as she looks me up and down and can't help herself from smirking at the thought of my looking like a Latina pop star.  She will then look at my ass as I walk to the chair and think- Actually, she may be able to pull this off.
So I say my bitter-sweet goodbyes to my blonde days.  I look forward to being taken more seriously (who is she kidding), but know I will miss the occasional rubber necker.  I look forward to not having to spend money that I don't have to satisfy my own vanity yet I will miss the stigma that comes with blond locks. 

Goodbye blond hair- I will miss you but we will keep in touch and I am sure this over processed head of mine has not seen the last of you!!!!
