Multi-Tasking Gone Bad

Note to self: there is a BIG difference between 25 minutes and 43 minutes when it comes to leaving hair dye on your head.

So there I was, stop watch going, looking out for the 25 minute mark, quickly typing on my computer, and then it all went down hill from there.

You see, I am a multi-tasker. I can talk on the phone and do dishes, thanks to my handy dandy head set. I can drive and drink Diet Coke (I'm VERY good at that). I can even read two stories at once - Box Car Children to Maddie and Thomas the Train to Jackson. But what I CAN'T do, so I've learned today, is work on a creative project AND dye my hair at the same time. Somehow, I got lost in creating and I swear, I went from 18 minutes on the stop watch to 43 minutes, in the blink of an eye.

For dramatic effect I'd like to say that I'm now a "jet-black" instead of a "golden brown" .... and honestly, when I got out of the shower I was fearful that this was the case. However, as the evening has progressed and as my hair has dried, I am simply a darker shade of brown than originally anticipated. Whew! That was a close one.

As you well know, I've left hair dye on longer than necessary. Remember the two friends that commented on the fact that my hair seemed darker? Said in a very nice way, of course.
