Things that piss me off

You Know You are Getting Old When

October 7, 2009

You know you are getting old when you have to start brushing your eyebrows.

I still don’t have the nose hair problem and my ears seem to be hair free but suddenly my eyebrows look like Andy Rooney’s.

I’m not really happy about this.

    My friend works at the medical examiners office and she says when women get old they lose their hair DOWN THERE. So what I am assuming is that somehow it gets sucked in, moves up through our body and comes out on our face. Niiiiccceeeeeeee

    Katherine, I don’t want to lose my hair down there, though I know it does happen, and I certainly don’t want it coming out of my face. Thank you for keeping me on my diet today.

    If I worked with Andy Rooney, I’d be constantly hovering over him with a pair of scissors. I used to work with a guy who had the longest and most disgusting patch of hair coming out of his nose. He was married and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how his wife could stand looking at that every day. Invest in a nose hair trimmer, man! It is your friend!

    Sorry about your eyebrows. Pluck away, sister. Pluck away.

    Kathy, I’m plucking fiendishly. My father had Andy Rooney eyebrows, which is where I get it from I guess, he was gay so they rarely got out of hand. My eyebrow hair never used to grow long before. I might get a few in places that I didn’t want but they were all the same length. It isn’t the plucking so much as it is the trimming. Nose hair an a guy is a deal breaker in my book, at least the kind that comes out of the nose.

    Vicy,
    I hope you get over the heartburn soon. You only have a couple of weeks to go so hang in there.

    I married a red-headed woman and have always been amazed at how LITTLE body hair she has. Leg hairs are nearly impossible to see and she only needs to shave them twice a year. Pits are about the same. She has almost no eye brow hair at all. I thought this must be how all redheads are.

    Doug, Some are like that. My ex husband has very little eyebrow hair. He was a redhead as a child. He is also losing the hair on the top of his head but I don’t know if that is related.
    I come from a very hairy family. Both my dad and my brother need/ed to shave their backs, shoulders, necks…basically they are/were apes. I do know some redheaded women who have very light and very fine hair which makes it hard to see and feel. I’m not one of them. I need to shave my legs every other day. Armpit not so much. Luckily for me my body hair is blond so it is not visible from a distance. I’m also lucky in that I don’t have a mustache yet.

    Uh, that is weird, Jen. Sorry to hear about those caterpillars above your eyes. I guess you could keep those mall threading girls really busy with those brows, eh?? That is just weird. And Andy? Doesn’t he have a friend that could suggest a trim on those bad boys??

    Great.

    I’m onto ears and nose at this point.

    Kill me.

    Lin, I’ve seen those shops in the mall and always wondered about it. It looks kinda cool but I don’t like the idea of doing it so everyone else can watch. To make matters worse they have a video camera pointed at the client so they can broadcast it on a big screen tv. No thanks.

    Mooog, They have little machines that you can insert into your nose and ears that will trim the growth back. Give it a try.

    I think treating yourself to an eyebrow waxing is the perfect thing. Hey, get a manicure while you’re there. Those mall thread things are too weird, I don’t even understand what they do. Does it hurt? Yes, and why would you want to be displayed for your entire community to watch you get an eyebrow trim?

  • Reply redkathy October 8, 2009 at 10:45 am

    Can’t say I have the eyebrow problem, but hairs on the chin are becoming visible now…. vision is going too which makes it darn hard to pluck those babies!

  • Reply Jen October 8, 2009 at 10:49 am

    Buggys, I like your idea of getting both a wax and a manicure, maybe even a pedicure. Not the mall thread place however.

    RedKathy, I have a couple of hairs on my chin as well and you are right they are getting harder and harder to see.

    I don’t have this problem yet. But I will. And I won’t like it anymore than I like getting up five times a night to pee. Fuck getting old. Is it OK with you to use words like fuck, shit and asshole on your blog? I hope so, because if it’s not, then I’m fucked. Oops. Better shut up now.

    Mike, you can swear all you like, I don’t give a shit. I don’t like the C word however so please refrain from using that one, especially if you are referring to me.

    Sorry you have to get up 5 times a night to pee. I remember having to do that when I was pregnant and it sucked. Maybe it’s time to get that prostate checked out?
