Raised Eyebrow

So I was feeling a little weighty and bloated and cranky this week. And what better way to improve a warped self-imagine and 'tude than a little salon therapy? One hair cut, lash and brow tint and brow wax later I was starting to feel like myself again. Until...

My esthetician turned to me and said, "I've never done this before in my whole career" followed by a l-o-n-g pause. I didn't know what was going to happen next. For some reason I thought she was going to put the moves on me or something. Instead she confessed that one third of my left eyebrow was inadvertently waxed off.

Part of me was relieved. Part of me was horrified. All of me couldn't stop laughing. I mean what could I do? It's not like she MEANT to make me look like a Romulan.

I guess technically I'm 10 eyebrow hairs lighter now...so yay me.

Omigod! You poor thing!

Did she at least do the other one the same way--y'know, in the name of symmetry and all? ;)

(I kid, I kid...)

You kill me :) I should not drink coffee and read comments at the same time...

Did she at least give you a complimentary voucher for next time?

Erika said...

No, I didn't get a voucher. But she didn't charge me for any eyebrow related services.

...and you KNOW that half is going to contain all the little eyebrow hairs that WON'T grow back.

Yes, I know :( My brows are sparse as it is (thanks to an over-plucking incident in college).
