Magical Realism
The Dime
I had a great-great aunt, sister to my great-grandmother. Her husband died and she took to wearing black. She even dyed her hair jet black. She always wore black, even until her death, many years after her husband's passing. She once was hospitalized, and her hair grew for two weeks without being dyed. It was then that the family realized that after all the years of mourning, beneath the black her hair had turned pure white.

She dyed her hair as soon as she was out of the hospital, and did so until her death.

Too much magic in my family. I love it.
