I had this really sweet, mushy post written and almost ready to post. I took a break from it for a few minutes because it wasn’t sounding exactly how I wanted it to. I decided to go into the bathroom, wash my face and get ready for bed.
I got sidetracked. It happens, what can I say. I’ve told you before that I have A.D.D.
I started inspecting my face. Up close. You know, like sitting on the counter, nose against mirror.
I noticed my eyebrows, which I’ve been letting grow out so that the arch can be reshaped. Because, like my post, they weren’t taking shape the way I wanted them to. The nice thing about hair…even eyebrows…they grow out.
So, as I was saying…I was nose to nose with the mirror, checking out the bush that was growing above my eyes. When, to my horror, I noticed this one rogue hair at the top of my left eyebrow.
Hello, can you say grandfather?
Look at the size of that thing. I should let it grow longer in the event that I may someday need to use it for a combover.
I don’t think I’m going to be able to wait until the weekend to get my eyebrows waxed. This is a national emergency.
I’m off to tweeze.
P.S…if I screw up, I can let them grow back again. Even THAT one.
P.P.S…It could be worse. It could have been a nose hair.
P.P.P.S…Or one in my ear.

Hahaha! I have been noticing the same thing in MY mirror! Problem is if I pluck them out, they’re replaced by grey ones! I don’t care how rogue, course and grandfatherly my eyebrow hairs are, they’re still way better than little old lady brows! Wait til you see how long those suckers can grow…. combover AND ponytail in one!

Haha. Thank you and I love you. Just when I’m feeling like shit, you pull one of your tricks and crack me up. And you’re still beautiful, rogue eyebrow hair and all!
I have one lone BLACK hair that grows right between my boobs. I pluck it and months will go by and nothing and then out of nowhere that bastard is suddenly a half inch long. I don’t know how it happens and it drives me crazy.
PS – I’m going home tomorrow. Can we talk Losing 40 this weekend? I seriously fell off the wagon this week and need a big time kick in the ass.

I can SO RELATE. I just decided I need, like, 14 hours straight in a spa trying to get myself semi-presentable again… (AND, I’m not even sure that’s possible anymore…) :o|

I have crazy eyebrows, always have. If I let mine grow they just get wild and go all over the place. I hate them. And almost every single time I get the waxed the esthtician says, “you have such nice brows.” Ugh.
And I have zero idea how to spell esthtician and apparently so does Firefox.

So true! It could have been a chin hair! 🙂

I have a friend who calls me “She-Ra, queen of the jungle” because of my eyebrows. A hair like that wouldn’t even show up on my face, it would get lost in the rest of the eyebrow insanity.
Talk to me when you get to the chiskers… 😉 http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=chiskers&defid=5175826
