Wow, CS, thank you! I consider this high praise indeed because I find your writing to be a hoot and a half!
I don’t know what it is about this hair color that makes me so “approachable” now. I know that I am not actually making friendly faces at people because those are patently unnatural for me. Maybe I look less ferocious than I think I do? I shall endeavor to find new avenues of expressing my inner curmudgeon to return to inspiring the correct level of vague uneasiness in those around me. I shall keep you posted. ;)
