You may, or may not, have noticed I changed the title of my blog. Blonde Among Brunettes or Babs. Ha! I'll tell you how I got this name and then why I decided to stick with it.
At work, I am the only blonde among the brunettes in the office. Our computer guy, who is crazy funny, took it upon himself to start calling me Bab. Not Babs, just Bab. I had to ask why he was calling me Bab. He explained the obvious (which was not so obvious to the blonde, of course). I am the only blonde head among the office. I asked if I could be called Babs instead of Bab and he said no. But this is my blog, and I make the rules here, so I am Babs. :)
I kept the name because it is so true about me. I am the only blonde in my close group of friends. The only one at work. Not the only one in my immediate family (mom and brother- except brother just shaved his head which is a whole other issue with me). But in the big extended family with cousins aunts and uncles, me and mom (we'll just count Mom because I am upset with brother) are the only blondes.
I love being blonde. Yes I hear the jokes, and they are funny and lots of the time true. But that's ok with me; I love to make people laugh! HA! In all seriousness though, this is what I strive to be. Someone different in a world full of the same. I don't always get it right and I'm not sure what my "something different" is going to be. I'll figure it out one day. In the mean time I enjoy being my blonde self and lighting up the world of brunettes!
Disclaimer: I love all my brunette friends! But seriously - BLONDES DO HAVE MORE FUN! :)
