Just a Lorrie Story

So... I have one of those nifty eyebrow trimmers, I use it on my daughter all the time who tends to grow a unibrow if left unattended. Well I am of the age that I have a few strays once in awhile to pluck, but other than that, that's about it. So you'd think I'd grab tweezers and shape up those one or two stray eyebrows every now and then...right? Oh, no.. I'm in too big of a hurry to do that so I get the turbo eyebrow thingy and think I'll just get them real quick. Now.. refer back to me letting you all know that I now need reading glasses.. (hence I can't see up close). So.. there I am, face in the mirror attempting to get the three little hairs that appeared in the arch of my eyebrow. I'm satisfied I got them... I step back.. put the gadget away and proceed to look in the mirror... I SHAVED OFF HALF MY EYEBROW!!! SERIOUSLY!! OMG! Well, it was over a week ago that I did that (it took me this long to share it with you because I was moritified). They are starting to grow back in already, but I have to tell you something funny... I went to the drugstore and bought ROGAINE for women and have been using a cotton swab to put it on my browless eyebrow every morning and night, then I Googled "how to make your eyebrows grow faster" and read about castor oil... so I put that on my eyebrow every night too! lol Why does this stuff always happen to me. It's growing in, but it's very sparse, I do not have those thin little eyebrows (well, right now I have one and a half). So, ladies... no this will not be a POD on my 365 blog, but heed the warning... slow down, take your time or you, too, could end up with only 1.5 eyebrows!

  1. Thank God I just went to the bathroom because I was laughing so hard that I'd probably would have pee'd my pants. LOL I do think you should take a picture even if you don't want to post it. Thanks for the laugh, I really needed it today.

  2. So funny! You should take a picture and do a layout about it. If you don't want to show the picture you can hide it in a pocket or something.

  4. You are too funny!! I can't believe you did not tell me. I have an eyebrow story. I always had too big of eyebrows. Well I plucked them so much in my twenties and thirties that they won't grow back. When I got married, the lady doing my eyebrows said I need to let the part closer to the middle grow in that I was plucking them to far in. Well guess what? That was 18 years ago and not a hair has grown back since then! I have a really really funny rogaine story to tell you!!!! Call me!!

  5. I agree POD!!! WOO WOO!! I laughed out loud when I read this!!

    I hope your eyebrow grows quickly...I have dark brows and I've massacred mine back in the day and it's mortifying!!

    btw, my mom has bifocals and one days was in a rush and put mascara on her glasses instead of her lashes!! LOL!!!

  7. You made me laugh and at the same time reminded me of an ex-coworker who did the same thing bit she got so frustrated she shaved both off and came to work brow-less, we were laughing so hard...Now, you have to take a pic...I say, those are MEMORIES girl, MEMORIES. Scrapping material, lol. Take care!

  8. Hahaha. THis is awesome. Rogaine probably wouldn't do a lot to make your hair grow faster - it's to keep hair follicles from dying and to regrow hair, but it usually takes about 4 months for those people to regrow it. I hope the castor oil works!
