Q & A

Why did this single hair on my chin spiral and grow two inches over night, when the hair on my head would take 2 years?

I hear you on this!  Big time!!!  Read my take on your situation!  they pop up overnite!

I know, I know, enough about getting older!!!  But please bear with me because all this stuff is kind of new and actually pretty hilarious to me!

I’m in the car today and it’s very sunny outside.  My hubby calls me princess and the pea because I was always so sensitive to anything touching my body.  I can feel the stray hairs off my head that fall and get caught in my shirt or worse, between your butt cheeks!  Or getting short sheeted or a crumb that falls into your boot.  I can spot a grey hair a mile away!  (Okay, not really but you get the picture)

I can also feel the little hairs that have been sprouting from my chin, my cheeks, anywhere.  I am in the habit nowadays of constantly rubbing my finger across my cheek or chin for that stray, wiry hair that seems to pop up within minutes of the last hair check!

I am sure now that each time I pluck one of those little devils from my chin, it forces another one up and out of its slumber.  I was frustratingly saying that in the car when my older than his years young son said, “You know, Mom, it’s kind of like Whack a Mole.”  You know, that kids arcade game where you have to hit the moles on the head as they pop up from their holes. The more you hit the moles, the faster they pop up.

Wise ass son.  Okay, it’s true.  The faster you pluck, the faster they pop out.  I guess that’s why you sometimes see women with almost full beards and wonder if they realize it’s on their face.  Not to mention, I am of Mediterranean descent, so it makes it all one hundred times worse.

Don’t you want to have a tweezers handy when you see a long, wiry hair on a friend of yours face?  I do.  I just want to pluck it for them.   Wouldn’t that be easier than telling them?  Save them the embarrassment and draw fast with the tweezers.  They wouldn’t know what hit them.

How about those hotel bathrooms (I am thinking in particular about The W) where they have dozens and dozens of makeup lights.  I’ve missed dinners because of those bathroom lights.  “Be right there!  In a minute!  Just plucking a few hairs!”  And then silence when I realize my husband has taken his clothes off and fallen fast asleep.  Good, then I have more time to search and destroy.

So please, I don’t want to be a bearded lady.  And I seem to be losing the battle.  So if you find one on my chin, please pluck away.  I won’t get mad.  I will probably thank you and then continue my own personal game of Whack a Mole....

    • I have one on my chin that I don’t see for months and then suddenly—there it is.  Drives me crazy.  And of course there’s no way I can focus my eyes on that particular spot, it’s got to be plucked mostly by feel. frown

    • I have a few gray hairs that are turning up. I haven’t noticed any chin hairs yet though lately , I’ve been using husbands trimmer to shape my brows to save the task of plucking. If i find any, I’ll just raze across it with the trimmer, should be fine right?
