Life in New Mexico

In line at the Costco Food Court

Middle-aged Caucasian-looking man: Your son has the most interesting hair.
Me: Thanks.
MACLM: What do you call that color?
Me: Uh.........blonde. (Is this a trick question?)
MACLM: Hmm.
MACLM: What's his natural color?
Me: Excuse me?
MACLM: You know, his real hair color? If you didn't dye it?

Strange! What do you think he meant by that?

It's not something that comes through in most pictures, but his hair is not a yellow blonde, but more of a grey/ash blond. (Mine has a similar tint.) I guess it's just too different around these parts where natural blondes aren't common to begin with. =)
