This morning, I’m looking in the mirror putting on my makeup and I notice something. There’s a white hair on my eyebrow. Thinking it belongs to the cat, I try to swipe it off. It doesn’t move. WHAT? Surely it can’t be attached. I swipe at it again and it doesn’t depart my face. I look closer and, sure enough, it’s attached!
How in the world did one of my eyebrow hairs get to be albino. You realize that it MUST be an albino hair and not actually a gray or silver hair as I am only 34 years old. Only really old people have gray/silver eyebrows. This thing is hideous and it’s FREAKIN’ ME OUT!
I grab a tweezer and yank – don’t get it. Darn – I try again and still don’t get it. This little bugger is desperately clinging on! On the fourth attempt – I succeed. Holy Moly – that was a horrendous experience!
But, it got me to thinking – why don’t eyebrow hairs have a name? We call eyelid hairs eyelashed, chin hairs whiskers, lip hairs a mustache, hairs on the sides of our cheeks sideburns, but there’s no name for eyebrow hairs. Why is that?
You didn’t possibly expect a post on Friday afternoon to be anything clever did you?
P.S. How many people stay till the end of the credits after you see a movie to see if there are any extra little clips at the very very end? There was an extra clip at the end of the second Pirates of the Caribbean movie. There was a little something during the credits of Night at the Museum so I was convinced there would be something at the very end so I sat in the theater (feeling kind of dumb as my stupid family said they wouldn’t wait with me and they would meet me in the lobby – losers) and then – there wasn’t anything. Which made me feel more dumberer. Am I the only person who feels compelled to see if there’s something? There should be a website which tells you which movies do and which ones don’t. Does anyone else even think about this stuff?
