Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow?

A woman stopped me on the sidewalk as Jesse and I walked to his car after lunch. She asked if we had any change. I gave her the 36 cents from my pocket. I probably should have given her more but I’m pretty sure I’ve seen her before near the office.

Anyway, she said she wanted to ask me in particular because of my hair. Having recently bleached it, it appears yellow if you see the strands from the side but appears orange if you see them from the ends. This means my hair seems to change color as I move.

I’m not sure how that makes me a more likely mark for helping people but I guess it does. I help whenever I can but sometimes I just can’t follow people’s logic.
