Why is it that when I leave the house in the morning my chin is smooth as silk and stubble free, but by the time I get to, say, the Sellwood Bridge on my way to a meeting, a lone prickly chin hair makes a midday appearance when no tweezers are in sight? How can this be? Could this solitary sprout have experienced a growth spurt in the matter of a few hours?
And while I’m on the topic, why is it that when you’re looking online for tweezers and let’s just say you go to the Tweezerman website, how do you navigate to the correct page? As you’re scrolling through the menu you may look for chin hair, but let me tell you it’s not there. No, should be looking for brow. Because, of course, we all know that our brows are the only place tweezers would have a use.
I’m thankful, at least, that I don’t need them for my nose or ears. Yet.
