I used to wear my hair up all the time. Then last fall I got it cut rather short and it is just now growing out long enough to get in a pony tail. I gathered it all up in a chignon the other day.
What did I notice? A hair on my neck. More specifically one hair on my neck that made a nice curl. A L.O.N.G. curl. I was horrified. How long have I had this long hair on my neck? Who noticed it? Why didn’t they say something..like excuse me but do you curl that long hair on your neck every day or is that just a natural curl? OR Far Side lets measure that hair on your neck and see how long it is now..it sure has grown since the last time I noticed it. No one said anything. Nothing.
I swear that hair was four inches long. So this is just a friendly reminder to all you old ladies out there..
walk run to the nearest mirror and check out your neck. I plucked mine..and whilst I was at it I inspected my entire neck for others that might be popping up ready to embarrass me.
For a number of years I have known about the one rotten little hair on my chin that grows fast..I call it my whisker..because it is stiff and wire like. I tweeze that one on a regular basis..sometimes I yank it out between my fingernails.
Now I have a another problem to add to the mess. I have an ingrown hair inside my nose. My nose feels like it is twice the normal size and it hurts and throbs along with my pulse. I asked Far Guy to tweeze the offending hair in my nose last night..I put hot water packs on it ( A hot wash cloth covered my finger that I put up my nose) He said “Do you know you have thousands of nose hairs?” “Yes, I know just tweeze some of them in the area I point to” ..so he held a flashlight up to my nose and tweezed away.
Getting older is not for sissies:)
