Would you let your daughter color her hair blue?

-A A +A

I recently took a ride on the new SunRail. I was among the throng onboard for a free ride and to see, as Dr. Seuss would say, “Oh, the places I could go.”

When I entered the overstuffed car, a young woman immediately stood up and said to me, “Here, momma, take my seat.” And I did. I thanked her and commented about the kindness of her gesture.

We chatted for a couple of stops and then she got off of the train. As soon as the doors closed and the train took off, the woman who was sitting directly in front of me said, “Did you see the color of her hair?” I did; it was blue.

I pretended not to hear my fellow rider. She asked again and this time she tapped my foot with her cane and spoke in a slightly raised voice, “Did you see the color of her hair?” I did; it was blue.

Not getting a response from me a second time, she said to the woman sitting next to her, “She must be deaf.”

I responded, “I’m not and I did; it was blue.”
