We've all seen the little gramma with those long gray chin hairs right? Maybe, hopefully not but maybe some of you have seen a dark coarse hair on your own chin. Well let me just make you all feel a little bit better about yourself, and possibly freak out Little Princess with what she could possibly have to look forward to.
Each week sometimes 2 times a week, and this is no exaggeration, I sit down and tweeze those annoying little whiskers from off my face. When I say face I mean the entire area where a man grows a beard, from ear to ear, above and below my lips, and down my neck. I've always been very hairy, my dad said it's from the mediterranean blood in me. But in the last few years it's gotten out of control. I could probably sit down each day and tweeze at least 10.
I notice them most when I'm in the car checking out myself in the mirror. The lighting must be just right that they all jump out and practically scare me to death. Today while waiting for Lover Boy to get off work I was looking in the visor mirror when I nearly had a heart attack. Not only did I have a zillion, ok so that is a slight exaggeration, ugly whiskers poking out of my chin, neck and cheeks, but some where gray! UHHHH!
What on earth is happening to me? I got my first chunk of gray hair on my head at 24, and when trying to blame my parents for that I was informed that neither of them got gray hair til they were past 30. Now this?!! Gray hair on my chin, how HUMILIATING! I guess I'd better turn my weekly sometimes bi-weekly ritual into a daily chore. I'd hate for someone else to see those horendous hairs.
I plopped myself down on the couch with my tweezers in one hand and mirror in the other, ready to declare war. Lover Boy walked in and asked if I'd like some assistance, how could I turn down that offer. He plucked away. I counted each hair that he pulled out. When he was done I asked him if he knew just how many he pulled out, he laughed and asked if I seriously counted. UM, yah! I told him there was 106. Then he laughed and told me I might be slightly wrong because many of those tugs had 2 or 3 hairs in them. Can you believe it? Over 106 big, thick, ugly whiskers!
