Looking a Bit Skimpy…

scissorsI was blessed with my fathers eyebrows and that is about all you need to know to preface this short story and oh sh*t moment.

This morning as I looked at myself still sleepy eyed in the bathroom mirror I knew it was *that* time again. Taking my eyebrow brush in hand I swept it through the rogue hairs that had grown about as tall as a wheat field in Kansas in what feels like days but more likely is weeks.

I have never been a skilled hand when it comes to eyebrow grooming – in fact should you look at pictures of me during my college years you would notice a distinct lack of eyebrows in most of them. What can I say? I’m a perfectionist and when one eyebrow refused to match the other I would remove each singular hair in an attempt to create a symmetrical face until there were very few hairs left to work with and I resembled a store front mannequin. I no longer have this problem but I do occasionally slip while trimming with those beautiful tiny shiny scissors.

This morning as I snipped away delicately, I slipped. One of my meticulously (hah!) groomed eyebrows is now considerably skimpier than the second and as luck wouldn’t have it I am lacking a pencil to fill it in. It seems that I will be half  a mannequin for Christmas this year…it could have been worse though, I could have been trimming them while I was faceplanting off this chair a few minutes ago and then I’d be a pirate for Christmas.
