Why are my red grapes sour

and where is my peanut butter?  Some days, everything becomes an issue.  I put by favorite Jif Natural into my vanilla yogurt every day.  So what happened to it?  Damn these things irritate me to no end.  I just can't seem to put things where they belong nor do I remember where I set them.  And.. two bags of red grapes, both sour. 
 
I went to Sally Beauty to see if they had a gray hair brightening shampoo for Carole and the sweet gal working (new employee I learned) asked me nicely if I wanted to become a member of their club to obtain a discount on all my purchases for hair care.  I said "look at me.  Do I look like I buy products for and take care of my hair?  I come in once a year for a stronger magnifier so I can pluck those wires on my lip."  She lost it.  Thought she was going to need a panty liner. 
The cheap person's selfie ...  a Canon digital camera and a mirror.
But still sharp enough to see my roots.  Wearing a hair band is my version of the male comb over.  The extra wide band hides the top roots and the rest of the hair comes forward to hide the side roots.  A brown Sharpie touchup above the bangs and I'm good to go.  I wonder if a swipe of my ink pad would work. 
 
Back to working on 1739 and loving the 35 count's look.  I'm sorry to say the ponies never made it to their feed sack.  I may tell you about it one day, but not until I find the peanut butter.
 
Join me in a Day of the Snark won't you?

I like your attitude - but then it mirrors mine. I don't worry about roots. I have just let my hair grow as it will and it WILL be grey however much I wish for that lovely snow white that some people get. It really is disheartening though when the darkest hair on my head pops out on my chin!

Hee! You're a riot, Marly!

I LOVE your blog and your posts. Today's cracked me up. Your post reminds of Erma Bombeck, author of some very funny books.

I told my daughter that the best thing about getting old is that I only have to shave my legs twice a year. I didn't have the heart to tell her about my chin lol!

Shelly said...

I'm picking my chin hairs right now as I read your post! Haha! The things we do to hold on to a little youth for ourselves. And yes, I get irritated when grapes are sour.

YUP, the hair on my head is salt & pepper...do not care to cover up the grey/white. Actually, I like it that way..."what you see is what you get" attitude. But what I do not like is the hair on my head is thinning and I am growing a mustache and goatee...what a sad joke.

Thanks for your humor. Hope I made you feel better about your predicament.

Peace,
Barb

I found a fabulous shampoo for gracing hair. It's in a pump bottle black and purple. By Matrix. Total Results So Silver. Buy it at Ulta. It's awesome!!

You are always good for a laugh!!!

A brown Sharpie for the roots! Brilliant! Thanks for the down to earth beauty tip! I hope you find your peanut butter and your mind.

Σημασία έχει η ψυχή που κρύβεις μέσα σου και όχι το χρώμα των μαλλιών φίλη μου.

I gave up on the hair-dye and gave in to the grey. My hair has gone so much thinner in my 60's. Its silver grey now. I used one of the grandkids wash-out felt markers to put a purple streak in my fringe (I think you call them bangs) - great fun and washed out completely. Hmm, what color next I wonder?

Oh my... I am so laughing. It is a good thing I wasn't drinking my coffee at the time. I have decided to age naturally just as a protest of "everything you need to make you look young" everywhere I go and look at. Harumph! ;) I am salt and pepper gray and wrinkly and enjoying (NOT) every bit of it. Hope that entitles me to join your snarky club for today. Take care. Cathryn

I had to read the brown sharpie line twice to make sure.

Vera said...

You always make me laugh - thank you!! Love the brown sharpie idea. Brilliant! Hoping you found your peanut butter.

Fran Caswell said...

You crack me right up! Brown sharpie, never knew. I have (had) blonde hair any sharpie color suggestions???? ha ha Thanks for the laugh today.

Heritage Hall said...

Our Bette Davis said, "Aging ain't for sissies.." Touche....However, coming at it
from your angle, it can be rife with humor and snark and I thank you for sharing
both with us. Before buying, why not sample one grape for sweetness...?leave the
sours behind. How does one "lose" a whole jar of Jif Natural? Only you, dear Marly..
Love you.

Krissy B. said...

Marly, I have the flu from hell so didn't get to read this last night. I am in pain & misery yet I'm laughing so hard. Are you related to Maxine by chance? You are my kind of gal I guess because I always look forward to your postings. Can't wait to see the sampler.Cheers to a snarky day.

Ele said...

I love your posts Marly! Thank you for this blog

Cricket-bug Corner said...

Damn it - you are a genius! I never even though of using a sharpie!! I saw someone say purple marker for their hair - brilliant!! Great eyebrows - I have been really contemplating the tattoos.

Carol said...

You are a hoot! Thank you for the much-needed laugh today, Marly!!

Theresa said...

Lol. Thanks for the laughs. A brown sharpie what a brilliant idea.

Frances N said...

Too funny! Never thought about a Sharpie! I have to touch up my roots because for some reason they get all grey and shiny!! haha I've thought about that powdered brush-on root stuff that looks like blush. I just wonder if it would make my scalp brown........

CJ said...

Does the sharpie really work?

TheCrankyCrow said...

Snark on my friend...snark on. Really...only one day? Love the selfie...you're a beauty....in all ways.... Too bad sharpies don't come in dishwater blonde. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

My hair is thinning, except above my lip....everything that can fall, has....my bones creak and groan with every movement....and I forget what it is I went into that room for as well as where I hid something so it would be safe. Oh well. I'm happier than I've ever been and more content. I do what I want when I want. Mostly. Here's to old age! blessings, marlene
