But my sister-in-law was a life-saver and told me all about her eye brow lady. After being a plucking queen throughout college, I finally went. Too say that I'm hooked would be an understatement. Although I did enjoy the times my friends Alison and Katie would help me manicure my eyebrows on the floors of the college dorms, I've matured a little in the skin care regimen.

The bonus is he usually tells me this as we are hugging, so I "lovingly" punch him in the gut. While I don't promote violence, I feel that this "love tap" is fair and square and only to be done when your spouse gives you a backwards compliment. I would also recommend that these "love taps" don't go the other way - it is these times when you claim that you are a dainty flower.....and smack back and run.
Okay, digressing.....so yesterday was my eyebrow appointment. It's probably my favorite appointment, other than my nails, but I probably like it more than my nails since usually I feel like I am being talked about while my cuticles are being clipped.
While at my appointment, there's always one question that I fear before closing my eyes.
Eyebrow Guru: "Just the brows today?"
Um.....what? "Yes, just brows."
And meanwhile in my head....I mean, yeah that's all I came here for....does she think I need to get something else done? Oh my gosh do I have other facial hair that my friends aren't telling me about? I mean my family is pretty blunt about things being on my face, but I haven't seen them in a while (yes, I did miss family dinner this week). Ugh, what if I have to start waxing my upper lip....does she think I need that? Should I wax something else...would it leave me with a red mark on my face? I can't wax my lip....that's what really hairy people do....well I guess it's kind of normal, maybe next time. Do I have to schedule that out when I make my next appointment, does she need more time? What would the receptionist say if I asked for a brow wax and lip....would they judge? I probably would judge and wait for the person to come in because I made a note on their appointment that they are a hairy monkey.
Eyebrow Guru: "Okay, all done."
"Okay, thanks see you next time!"
Yes, it is scary to be in my head....and it's going to happen all over again in four weeks.
