Do Blondes have more fun? A Slice of Life Post

SOL

Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you. I’m back today with another Slice of Life Post. Today, I’m discussing the question, do blondes have more fun?

Now, I can do a survey and ask a random sample of blonde women whether they agree with that age-old theory or I can tell you about my experience as a blonde versus my experience as a brunette.

I bet you’re wondering how I can do this objectively. Well I’ll tell you. You see before I went through chemo. I was blonde. I had some chemical help too, but that’s beside the point. 🙂

Anyway, then I started chemo and I lost my hair. It all fell out. I was bald. This was quite a shock for me, but my family took it in stride. So I bought a wig and I was fortunate enough to find one that matched my former blonde locks to a reasonable degree.

I finished chemo and to tell you the truth when I was going through it, it seemed like it would never end. Now that I’m done, and I’ve been done for about a year, it seems like it happened a lifetime ago. Isn’t the human mind a wonderful thing? It can take some horrific event and make it seem faraway and small.

Well, when I finished chemo, I started to recover and my hair started growing back, but it came back very dark, almost black.  It’s still in the process of growing in, but it’s long enough so that I can style it a little now.

Because of this experience I feel that I’m qualified to answer the question: Do blondes have more fun?  After all, I’ve been a blonde and I’ve been a brunette.

And the answer is: It doesn’t matter if you’re blonde or brunette. The people who have the most fun are the healthy ones. Take care of your health and you’ll truly have wealth.

  1. Lisa, There is so very much truth in this slice. My friend’s hair is just growing back in and it is “salt and pepper” after years of being blond. And, yes, she is having the time of her life right now and so are we sharing her joyous recovery.

      Thanks for stopping by Haddon! I’m so glad to hear your friend is on the road to recovery and that she’s enjoying life! Even though chemo is tough, it certainly makes you realize how sweet life can be once you’re over that enormous hill! 🙂

    Lisa,
    LOVE this because your answer was neither! Such a perfect answer for this question!

    Such a clever post to begin 2016!

    When my nephew lost his hair due to chemo, my mom shaved her head – It’s been 7 years (cancer free) so maybe she did this three different times. As an aunt, I just couldn’t do that. I didn’t think I could explain the why every day to a different group of people! However, as a new grandma – I would be the first in line, if ever needed to do so, in order to support my grandson. I get that now!!!

      Thanks Fran! I appreciate you stopping by and your kind words! I’m glad to hear your nephew is cancer free that is such awesome news. I understand why you wouldn’t want to explain why, you’d have to repeat yourself constantly. 🙂 I hope your grandson stays happy and healthy and that you’ll never have to shave your head. Hopefully, they’ll find a cure for cancer soon. 🙂 I love your cheery comments and your positive attitude! Best of luck in 2016! 🙂

  5. YES! Lisa, you’re a lovely spirit ❤ I agree that health is the most important thing. Oh and remembering to smile too! I bet you look beautiful as both a blond and brunette. Congratulations on the one year mark and I send you love for a beautiful New Year!

    My mother went through chemo as well and her hair color didn’t change but the pattern was little now she had curls. 😊
