Regally Blonde (Or, Another Old Ass Story)
Continuing on the I-Can't-Believe-1997-Is-A-Decade-Ago theme...here's another ditty from ten years ago:
My friend Lucas is a less-than-natural blonde.
There. I said it.
Once upon a brunch, Lucas - newly re-tinted a brighter shade of "natural" ash-blonde-platinum-whateveryoucallit - was taking far too long to place his order with a far less than patient waiter.
As the waiter, well, stood there waiting less than patiently, Lucas hemmed and hawed and hawed and hemmed about how he wanted his Two Eggs, Any Style. When Lucas finally came up with the ever-elusive answer "sunny side up", the waiter snatched our menus, leaned in to ultra-blonde Lucas and said, loudly:
"Lay off the color."
