It usually happens at red lights. You’re in your car running errands or worse yet, on your way to a party. As you sit waiting for the red light to change you absently reach
up and find a sharp, inflexible, foreign object on your chin. A whisker! How charming.
You quickly pull down the vanity mirror in your car and yes, there is another one. Just before you flip your visor up you notice the woman in the car behind you making a similar discovery!
Having company in this exercise does not make it more pleasant.
Why does this nasty little discovery always seem to happen in the car? Is it the bright lighting or the idle time?
The cosmetic bag in my purse doesn’t contain tweezers. Does yours? And if it did, would you, could you, see well enough to pluck those little devils out by their stubborn roots?
And of course, personal grooming should be just that, personal… done in private.
Why are my eyebrow hairs re-positioning themselves to my chin? Mercifully it’s not my upper lip, but my Granny did have quite the ‘stache in her day, so I expect that’s on my horizon.
As I sit at my vanity table to remove the sneaky little devil, I gaze into my Hubble Telescope magnifying mirror and spot another one. It’s at least half an inch long, draped down my cheek.
How did I miss that one? How many people have seen it? Why didn’t my husband spot it and warn me? Argh…I can only hope people thought it was a stray hair from my (needs to be replaced) makeup brush.
I’ve threatened to go for electrolysis on my chinny-chin-chin and today was the day.
Laser hair removal isn’t an option for me because there isn’t enough contrast between the unwanted hairs’ color and my skin tone.
It didn’t hurt as badly as I remember. And as a lovely bonus, the woman who was zapping me hadn’t just eaten a garlic and onion sandwich prior to leaning over my face.
From previous experience I know it’s not a one-shot deal. It takes several zaps to kill most of these little darlings, but at least I’ve started their death knell.
Is it just me?
Have you spotted the woman in your rearview mirror hunting for strays?
Thanks for reading ladies and be sure to wear what makes you feel confident!
