I'm 64 and my hair is white. [View all]

I'm a man.

I figure from the way I feel, I have about 5 years - MAX - left to have fun before the nurses tie me to the wheelchair and put me facing the corner, drooling on myself.


Should I color my hair and stash?

Is it even worth it?

What color?

At home or a salon?

I think it might be fun to find out how much trouble I can get myself in.

What could possibly go wrong?
