Dye it!

This evening I was at Starbucks and overheard a woman saying to her friend, "I'm going to diet tomorrow." This struck me as a little strange, both because she was fairly slim and because one doesn't usually decide to diet for one day---she hadn't said she would start dieting tomorrow, she just said she was going to diet tomorrow. I do live in California, home to weird ideas, so I figured maybe she was just hoping to make up for one pastry or one Frappucino too many with a one-day fast or something.

After surreptitiously eavesdropping a bit longer, I realized she was talking about her hair, and that she was going to dye it!

But a woman never dyes her hair, she colors it!

Really? What's the distinction? I wouldn't know---I've never done either. (Or are you just being silly?)

I am being silly. Goodness, I don't even remember where I picked that line up. A movie or t.v. show, I think. It's along the lines of women don't sweat, they glisten.
