Life’s most embarrassing moment


I was blissfully unaware I was caught in the throws of my most embarrassing moment last Sunday when I attended a cocktail party at a friend’s  home.

It was worse than when I went to the grocery store dressed in a hoodie straight from the dryer and had a bra dangling down my back!

There were hundreds of people at the party and I thought I was sparkling.  In truth, I was experiencing a melt down that horrified me when I got home and began to take off my make-up.

Last Sunday it was an unseasonably 80 degrees and I was needing a root touch up on my “naturally blond” tresses.

Normally these two realities would not be connected but a friend had introduced me to a product called “Tween Time.”  It’s a tube of brownish stuff you can rub on your roots to hide the gray until you can get to the hairdresser.

In the sweltering heat, I kept mopping my brow and when I arrived home I had streams of black oozing down both sides of my temples, all the way to my chin on one side.

And. No. One. Told me!  I called my hairdresser Monday morning and demanded an appointment immediately.  One of these days I’m going to give it up and go gray.

  1. come on and “go grey”….Nothing sexier than a beautiful lady with grey hair. Of course, I’m this gay man giving advice on female sexuality ? LOL but I do know SEX and I know what men like. AND I Know that Grey hair on a knockout lady is a turn on…

  2. Emily, I’m sorry but that is really funny! You have had some of the worst moments… and you can laugh! What a gift!
