Dear Ms. God, or Whoever's Listening,
If I got stuck with thin, fine, limp, straight hair, why did I also get stuck with long, naturally wavy eyebrows? I'd like an explanation.
Thank you for your time and attention.
A P. Bostonian
Drives me nuts: If I don't thoroughly towel off my eyebrows after I wash my face, water will keep dripping into my eyes for a long, long time. My eyebrows are like waterlogged sponges. Does this happen to you?
I didn't think so.
Here's another thing — and this may be disconcerting news to you if you are under 40 or so: Eyebrows turn gray or white as we age, as do eyelashes. Although I found my first gray hair in my 20s, I never dreamed this eyebrow thing would happen to me until I spotted the evidence above my right eye. And plucked it. Graying eyebrows are a subject no one ever mentions, probably because it's too depressing to contemplate. Some people dye them or brush mascara on them, I suppose. I'm not going to do that, so I have no idea how to deal with it. But it looks weird to have patchy, disappearing eyebrows.
Ah, this is too depressing; let's change the subject.
Boden's clearance sale includes the adorable Jeweled Flats I bought and returned before Christmas. When they offered a special deal on top of the clearance price I couldn't resist ordering another pair for $63, especially since I had a credit. I may decide again that they are just too uncomfortable to keep, or I may have a new incentive to vacuum... sparkly house-fairy shoes. Sizes and colors come and go, so if they don't have yours, be patient... the hunt is part of the fun, isn't it?
And feet don't go gray.
