Can you believe my life's story can contain 2 postings about my...eyebrows??
..but here we are.
I mean, ever since I lost them to chemo a l-o-n-g time ago (yay!) I never realized how important they were..you know ...aesthetically and all...
Kinda like a frame on a picture..a piece of art...a frame adds to the beauty of the art.....except....
Oh! Oh! ...have you seen some of the new art, on just the stretched canvases? They look really really cute.....the canvases ...not the eyebrows..WAIT! If my face was like stretched canvas................naw....that'd be too Joan Rivers..
Anyway, when they grew back, they came in very thinly..that sounds funny "very thinly" maybe it should be "very thin.." (..ly..coundn't help myself..)
OK, back to my eyebrows....
I told Mr. B just the other night..."I'm having an eyebrow crisis..."
Mr. B: "what??"
Me: "an EYEBROW crisis!!"
Mr. B: "what's the problem?"
Me: "If I draw them on, I end looking like Groucho Marx...
..if I leave them alone, don't use anything on them, I look like an alien..or like in Gray's Anatomy, when whats-her-face was going to get married to Burke and her Mother shaved off her eyebrows, remember??
Mr. B: "They're fine.."
Me: "Which way..........Groucho or Alien....or Christina Yang????"
Mr. B: "Huh..sorry..I wasn't listening..."
We lived next door to an older woman once - sweetest thing..she was getting a little senile and her eyesight wasn't what it once was..one day when I went to check on her, she answered the door all fixed up and pretty, jewelry on, hair curls and the brightest, reddest lipstick penciled eyebrows you ever saw.
Must have had someone give her a lip liner that she mistook for an eyebrow pencil.
It was a bit shocking..like in Fried Green Tomatoes when Ninny Threadgoode (Jessica Tandy) dies her hair purple and Evelyn Couch (Kathy Bates) is surprised...
....all I could say is "Wow, Mrs. Hollingsworth, you look...pretty today!"
Didn't have the nerve to tell her - didn't want her to be embarrassed or to hurt her feelings and I knew I would probably be the only visitor..
Ah well...the problems of the world aside, my eyebrows once again garnered a posting in the memories of my time on........... Main Street, USA.
