On having acne and gray hair

I've mentioned this before (you can read about it here), but this subject is worth revisiting.

Okay, my gray hair has taken over. It's like a wild fire spreading rapidly over my head, invading my brown locks, turning them white and wild. For some reason, the gray hair is totally unmanageable. I'm beginning to look like Don King and Albert Einstein combined!

In the beginning of the color change, I ignored it. But, it can no longer be ignored. Hence, the recent red dye job.

But to make matters worse, my skin is erupting like freaking Mt. Vesuvius. Soon I'll have a crater face like Edward James Olmos! Okay, okay, maybe it's not that bad, but it does seem to be getting worse. And, I just don't understand it! Why on earth would I be getting acne at the ripe old age of 30-ish? And to top it off, I've got freaking gray hair, too! This is so unfair! Next, I'm going to need freaking bifocals. Won't that just be lovely: a midget, Mexican, momma with gray hair and acne, wearing little, old, lady, bifocal, reading glasses. That's just what the world needs!

And, the stupid acne is totally ruining my chances of becoming AARP's Next...Top...Model or spokesperson. How can the members of AARP take me seriously or believe that I'm a senior when I've got effing Mt. Fuji on my cheek, ready to explode and squirt them in the eye with icky, white, puss?!

Getting old sucks!

Actually, she's 31!

I'd rather have gray hair and zits than be going bald.
