My poor 45-year-old husband. He went to the dentist today and after they had him in the chair, the dental hygienist asked him if he was working or retired. Working. Or. RETIRED.

He's 45.

Okay, so maybe he has a lot of gray hair. :) Personally, I think it looks really great on him.

But, not only does he now think he looks old, but they told him maybe he should drink his coffee out of a straw to cut down on staining his teeth.

So, he's been walking around all day with his coffee mug and a purple straw and possibly contemplating hair color.

Rob doesn't look like a retiree?? She must have been 19. It reminds me of the time Jon (age 40) was trying to read the menu in a very dark restaurant and tipped his glasses down to read it better. The 21 year old waitress replied, "Oh my Dad does that." I almost wet my pants laughing so hard.

HI Jane! :) I think you are right. She had to have been 19. :)

I'm bad, though. I've been laughing about it since he told me!! :)

Oh dear. Poor fellow. Ah well, so he has some gray hair. At least he has hair.

My husband has been losing his hair for years and is 50 years old, so you should tell your hubby to be glad he has hair even if it is gray. :-)

HI Daisy,

Rob's always said he will take any color hair, even purple, as long as he still has it. :)

I'll be sure to remind him to be thankful for his gray hair. :)

I actually LIKE gray hair.

My 45 y.o. husband is entirely gray. I absolutely love it, for as long as I color mine, I'm considered "arm candy" and entirely too young for him.

I LOVE THAT! I'm coloring my hair in June and I shall henceforth be called his "arm candy." HOW GREAT! Thanks for sharing that!! :)
