I went to the grocery store and had one of those “I wish I could just run out of here” moments. I was checking out and the cashier asked to see my license. He studied my license for several seconds, looked up at me and scrutinized my face. Then, in a very loud voice, he asked me if I was really the person pictured on the license. I told him that I look a little different in the photo because I used to get blonde highlights. He said, “Wow you really look good in this picture.” He then asked why I stopped highlighting my hair. I told him I just decided to stop going blonde and enjoy my natural brunette color. He said I looked much better as a blonde. I was so stunned. Everyone in line was staring at me. As he handed me my receipt he told me to run and get those highlights! I had no idea my groceries came with a free hair consultation. I laughed to myself as I walked to my car. I have to be honest though, I did think—maybe I should start highlighting my hair again….
