weekly photo challenge: unexpected

image

My prematurely grey hair leads to unexpected moments:

-New students pull me aside and quietly mention that I have some paint in my hair.
-Every person who has cut my hair in the last 10 years tries to convince me I should dye it.
-Quizzical looks from strangers when the age of my face doesn’t quite match up with the age of my hair color so they stare. Sometimes for way   t o o     l  o  n  g.
-A supportive student who tells me “grey is the new punk, ms.” while raising a fist in support.
