Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Crooked eyebrows


I have managed to live 37 years without having to pluck my eyebrows, but I think the day has finally arrived.

I got some new groovy glasses today. You know, the trendy soccer mom type? I'll take a picture Wednesday when I actually have on makeup, etc, and post it. But, I digress.

The glasses seemed uneven and I asked the Eyemasters girl what the deal as. Embarrassed, she was, when she said "your left eyebrow arches more than the other and makes it look crooked. The glasses are actually straight."

Ok, this is the second time an eyeglasses salesperson has told me this. So, I guess I can't deny it any more.

I'll call tomorrow to get an appointment to have my eyebrows shaped. It is only $20. But, I fear a replay of the chest waxing scene from The 40-year-old Virgin. I am not about pain. But, beauty is pain and it is time to lose my Brooke Shields eyebrows.


Maybe I'll treat myself with a pedicure, too. I'll let everyone know just how awful it is. But, I figure I have several friends who get a brazilian wax and they live through it, certainly I can wax my brows. How bad can it be?

    The link is fixed now ... you can comment ...

    Made my eyebrow appointment for Friday. Yippee. My sis-in-law emailed and said it "only stings a little." That is SOOO not helping. I am SO not about pain in any form.

    No comments from you, Army of Dad.

    Eyebrows are not nearly as bad as waxing the upper lip. I won't begin to discuss my most recent bikini wax.

    A bikini wax sounds like the worst thing on the planet to me!
