The other day I used some of my balance reward points to pay for a fresh box of Sally's wax strips. Getting old sucks...
When did this facial hair become so problematic?
I don't remember a mustache coming with puberty
I don't recall a beard in my teens
Brows? Sure. Everyone does.
But the rest?
My mom and both grandmothers have/had light/fine hair
I do not
Dark, thick, coarse hair
And it grows
For a while I thought the hair came with the weight gain
The weight is gone
The hair remains
Into the bathroom, tools in hand. It's been three days and I'm sporting a goatee any 13 year old boy would envy
Makeup won't help now
Apparently neither will the wax...
The mustache comes off just fine, those hairs aren't as bad
The beard is another story
Four strips later
Five hairs removed
Now the tweezers; I've finally found a good pair, both cute and effective
For the most part
Target, grip, pull.... *snap*- damn...
As thick as these hairs are you'd think they'd be stronger
"The strength is in the roots, grasshopper"
I can't see under my own chin, you know, and my eyes are not great
Like a contortionist every few days
Just so I don't look like a dude
"A dude with a hefty estrogen problem..."
Shut up, you
I read somewhere that (some) Japanese women shave their faces; "it's good for the skin"
Sikh women let it grow
I am neither of those things
Sometimes I do shave...
"Shaving makes the hair thicker! And darker!"
That's a myth. Shut up
"Are you sure?"
Yep... it's an illusion...
Target, grip, pull
Mustache- gone- mostly; beard- gone- mostly... What fresh hell is this?
Aaron calls them "chipmunk hairs"
I call them "fledgling sideburns"
"I think they're cute"
Nobody asked you, go away
I don't want sideburns, or a 'stache or a beard. I don't want hair on my knuckles either, while I'm at it.
I don't want this one weird hair that grows out of my shoulder
I don't want leg hair or armpit hair
WHY SO MUCH HAIR?!
"It keeps you warm"
I live in Texas now; my genes are still European mutt
"Does that matter?"
I don't know...
"What's that hair?"
Would you fuck off already...
I don't have enough Nair left to do both arms; that bottle's kind of old anyway
"Nobody's looking at your arms"
Probably not, but
I think I've got them all
All the ones I'm willing to bother with
Do I look like a lady?
I hate you
So that was my morning. I feel a little raw and exposed now, but maybe somebody can relate. I hope, anyway. Before anybody gets concerned the italicized lines are the voice in my head. I think I'm going to go grab dinner and then disappear into the sweet, numbing embrace of Sims. (^_^)"/" Auf Wiedersehen
