Sporadically Sara: Blondes have more fun

By Staff | Jun 3, 2016

I think I have officially heard every blonde joke that was ever created! Blondes are given a lot of grief about the color of their hair. Blondes are said to be, ditzy or not very smart. Some blonde jokes can go too far and be offensive but most of them are just good clean fun. I am a true blonde. I have never and will never dye my hair. I am not saying that there is anything wrong with dying hair. I am just saying that I have not. I have been classified in this group of silly blondes, and sometimes that’s ok. Blondes are said to have more fun!

In all reality the color of one’s hair doesn’t mean anything about their personality or their intelligence level. I can’t speak for everyone but I have done some silly things in my day, and I don’t think it’s because I am a blonde. I think it is because I am human. I have looked everywhere for my glasses, when they have been on my head the entire time. I have lost things within a matter of seconds! More than few times, I have walked into a room and forgotten why I came into the room. I have made tuna casserole and forgot to put the tuna in. I have driven to work more than a few times with a coffee cup sitting on top of my car. Maybe I just have a memory problem, maybe it doesn’t have anything to do with me being blonde at all.

My dad passed away when I was only 13, but he taught me a great lesson: Don’t take yourself to seriously. You have to be able to joke around a little bit. Life doesn’t always have to be so serious. You have to laugh at yourself! Life isn’t easy, and you have to take it one day at a time. Don’t worry about the eight foot tall man that sits in front of you in an empty movie theater, just move down a seat. The little things life throws at you, are there to test you. Can you handle waiting in line at the grocery store while the person in front of you deals out six hundred coupons? Is it possible to eat your steak rare when you asked for it medium? It is always interesting to watch people deal with little situations. Some people handle them very gracefully and with tact. Some don’t do so well. There are, of course, times to be serious and tactful. There are going to be times in your life when you will need to know which fork you use first!

We as individuals have to find the happy balance for ourselves. When you discover the right amount of serious to silly, life is good. I have been known to have blonde moments quite often. I would like someone to prove to me that my moments are in direct correlation to the color of my hair. I have to admit something, I haven’t been blonde since day one. I was born with black hair that quickly turned brown, which eventually turned blonde. Life is too short to take everything so seriously. Is something worth getting upset about? Will it change our life? Will it hurt others? One thing you also have to remember is that you will never make everyone happy. The only thing you can do is do the best you can, do what you love and embrace your downfalls. If you are a horrible golfer, like I am. Go golfing with your buddies anyway, but shoot for the highest score wins! Life will be so much easier if you have fun while you are here, no matter what color your hair is!
