Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin
Jeff this won't be pretty, and I beg you not to read it...which means that you will and later will make fun of me. Do you all have husbands like this?
Okay, so I was getting ready in the bathroom the other day in full sunlight. I'll occasionally get a chin hair, a VERY SMALL chin hair, that I will have to pluck. Lately there have been two. But I figure, no big deal, right? Just pluck them out and don't worry about it for another month.
So I'm looking in the mirror and I see some hair on my neck. At first it looks mostly blond, but as I look closer I see I have a beard. A man beard, with black hairs, on MY NECK.
My first thought was how come no one told me????
How come not one of my friends at church, just the day before, said to me:
"Michelle, I don't know if you've noticed this or not, but you have a little beard there."
Well okay, maybe my friends are too polite. But come on ladies.
Aren't we suppose to be able to tell each other when we have lipstick on our teeth, toilet paper on our shoe or that our skirt is tucked into our dress. Chin hair is no worse than that.
Now I have a bigger dilemma because I can't really pluck these hairs...I can barely see them. WHAT DO I DO? Do I grab three or four mirrors and position them in such a way that I can see everything but I'll throw my back out in the process? Do I grab a razor and close my eyes? Do I go for a wax? OUCH!
Second, where did they come from? Is it because I'm pregnant? Old? WHY?
Please tell me I'm not alone and that you have a solution for me.
And ladies, you know I will post a picture of hairy legs, but this is too much, so don't even ask.
