I've mentioned before that it was only last year that my friend Elke took me by the furry Cro-Magnon brow and dragged me to the threading lady.
Being new to the whole eyebrow grooming realm, I kept going to the threading parlor -- though not frequently enough!
This week I found myself sporting a brow situation inside a nail place that offered waxing services.
Since I've established that it is probably a mistake to shave my eyebrows, I thought I'd give the whole wax thing a whirl.
The nice young woman from Saigon applied the wax (which was totally fine) and then she seemed to be smoothing a nice piece of fabric over the top and...
MARY MOTHER OF GOD!!!!
I actually screamed.
Just like this 40-year-old virgin guy:
What 39 year old woman screams over an eyebrow wax?
I embarrassed myself mightily.
So right then, in my moment of deep shame, Lady Wax says (in her OUTSIDE VOICE mind you),
"YOU WANT ME TO DO YOUR LIP?"Now I know I'm not the most learned woman in the ways of feminine beauty, but I had to say,
"STEP OFF, WAXER LADY!"
