A Year of Being Blonde

BlogHer Spotlight

Deep in grief, while writing a eulogy for her amazing friend, Lisa Kelly, Kim has a beautiful, golden, hair-brained idea, and she ends up getting more rootful insight than she bargained for:

"I don’t know where the thought came from, honestly. It was another crazy cell in my brain, maybe, or all the running on fumes and hallucinations. Or even a thought put in my head by Lisa herself, if you believe that sort of thing. Whatever the source, one second I was plotting my tragic midlife drunken flee to Mexico, and the next second I thought: 'Or, I could dye my hair blonde.'"
