Way back several lifetimes ago I got blonded for the first time -- over the Christmas break in 1964-65, when I was teaching at one SW Mo. State COllege (now University, of course). Among other delightful courses, I was, of course, teaching freshman comp. Sometime in mid-Jan, a colleague tald me about one of my former students, who had come to tell him that "Miss DUmas" has got herself "blonded" over the break. First time I had heard it as a verb. FWIW, the student was black and male. Bethany Dumas [Does she or doesn't she today? Only Barbara at Metz & Kerchner knows for sure.]
