Genes do amazing things, if you ask me. In this particular instance I’m talking about the fact that I started out blond. For the first couple of years of my life my hair was so light it looked like I didn’t have any. (I can show pictures of this, too, if you’d like). Then my hair came in a little darker and I was definitely blond. People who have known me for a long time have a hard time picturing it since I’ve had dark hair since I was in grade school. For those people, and for you, I offer pictoral proof.
