(Written age 18 – goodness knows what inspired it)
If a person's hair turned gold with age would the first appearance cause such rage? Any colour beats a head that bare so why should people dread their silver hair? In ancient fables, and novels brand new the wise, the magic, the old and true - they were the ones granted silver hair. Others should complain: "It's so unfair!" Silver is the colour of the rich and mighty not the walking sticks and the nightie. Barristers wear wigs to show their power - silver means big bucks every hour. People buy dye and colour hair blue as if this were a preferable hue. I really can not understand why silver is worse than second hand. People will try to call it grey but that's "tall poppy syndrome" holding sway. So when silver takes over above the shoulder just tell your kids "you can have it when you're older"
