It’s been months since I’ve been to a Thousand Oaks or Newbury Park Starbucks.
What a surprise to see how blonde the clientele are!
Sure, I suppose they are no more blonde now than they were last year when I lived here.
But living back in Los Angeles (Glendale/Eagle Rock area), and just visiting this western suburbia, I’m now struck by the difference. By the absence of diversity.
It’s not bad, it’s not good.
I can’t help but notice that many of the “blondes” are in their 50s, 60s, even 70s.
And I’m just wondering when the time is right
To give it up and admit
That you’re coloring the truth.
