Yep, St. Patrick’s day is today… Just realized this. Here is a little flashy, flash from the past for you:
When I was in 6th grade I was going to this girl scout party for St. Patrick’s day. They were having a contest, “wear the most green and win”. My step dad and I planned to go and win. Why do anything if you aren’t set on winning right?
Soooo, I had learned somewhere that you can dye your hair colors with kool-aid- What? It was the 1990’s! Can’t you tell by my bangs?
Anyway, the procedure was to boil water and add the contents of the kool-aid packet, then you put your hair in and it just died dyed it. Amazing huh?
Lol couldn’t spell in 6th grade apparently! Look ma, I now know the difference between dyed and died!!!
Anyway, I dyed my hair and it was very green, I won a measly award and the kool-aid dye didn’t EVER wash out like it was supposed to.
Yep, I was stuck with green hair for an extended period of time… See the school photo of the green madness? I was not to torn up about it, I told everyone I had won the contest and wore my green hair with pride. I was an odd one (heck I still am!)
Eventually I cut my hair and the green went bye-bye… I saved a piece and put it in my baby book as a keepsake. I knew one day I would look back and laugh, looks like today is the day!
Do you remember any old/ silly memories like this? Share yours and if you have a nifty photo or something to go with it post your own blog post on it and leave us the link below.. We can call this the “You did what when you were a kid” meme… Oh joy, can’t wait to hear your stories!
