Going Green Again

No, I can’t believe it happened again!
Surely folks think I stand out like Big Ben
     The Jolly Old Green Giant
     Snarls at me, so defiant
Green hair – and I’m not a comedian

It first occurred just before I was wed
Dyed my blonde hair brown; it turned green instead
     Now the chlorine in the pool
     Made me look like quite a fool
And I’ve no option but to shave my head

    LOL-Not what I was expecting from the title , but it was a pleasant surprise. you had me laughing with this one. That said , I have no doubt that you could pull off the green hair look.

    Hello sweetie, Haaa I love this one. Been there, even though I am a natural blonde I do require a little help now and then. My pools have always had fun with my hair. A good cure is to wash your hair with pure Milk 100% It will take out all the green hon...Smiles, Love, Shar
