The telltale scent of Sharpie's

So tonight, after a busy, action packed weekend, Jupiter and I settled in bed to read. At the same time, she was going to style my hair. We found the brush and the parfait cup that holds the hair ties.

So I'm reading. She's brushing, and braiding, and putting hair ties in.

And then I smell the Sharpie.

My hair now has purple and blue ends.

She informed me that you can't even see it.

Which isn't entirely true. You CAN see it. I'm not sure how visible it is if you're not looking for it. But it's definitely there.

Jupiter's logic: "Well, it's not like I colored it GRAY."

Thanks for that.

So of course on Tuesday, I have to go to a one on one meeting with our Senior Manager from NJ. This would be the same meeting that last week I went too two weeks early. Which was about six weeks after I called him by the wrong name. Immediatly preceeding a three day kaizen event. So this time, I can go to the meeting (on the right day) with multicolored hair. Good think I work for a bank. We're all for personal freedom of expression and all.

Jupiter is definitely all for personal freedom of expression.

Sounds like someone has a date with Ms. Loreal coming up :-)

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers take sharpie off just about everything but carpet, but I have no idea how to get it out of your hair. Maybe some clarifying shampoo?

Can you just trim your hair?

P.S... you should delete the apostrophe from the blog title. =)

Diana- I LOVE Magic Erasers.

I could just see a little blue this morning, so maybe Sharpie doesn't cling to hair as permanently as other things.

MJ- you're right. The apostrophe doesn't belong there, does it?

I'm sure Jupiter would be happy to give me a trim as well...

I didn't notice a thing this morning... hope it's not so much of an issue now!
