I have had several rare and unique incidents with my eyebrows. Intriguing how an antelope tag, a ski, and a pair of scissors get into this story...
What does an antelope tag have to do with eyebrows, you might ask... SCOPE...RECOIL...BAM... Not only did I have a nice black shiner, but a perfectly rounded wound outlining my eye and brow. I still have the scar...my son says it is my "grumpy line". (Truly he has NO idea how grumpy!) Not to mention years later at college I reopened that same scar with the edge of my ski... all because I was doing my very gregarious laugh at some kid going down the moguls... SLIP...BAM... Ski Patrol!
Although it was a fun afternoon idea, I was having difficulty obtaining a hair from my eyebrow...and so the brilliant idea I had was to take the scissors and trim myself one. So, with scissors in hand, I cut a sample (of course I was not looking in the mirror when I did this) and upon completion, looked in my hand and it was a small bushel of hair. I was so proud because they were long hair pieces and sure to beat Mike's hair. With a triumphant smile on my face, I presented my prize to him. Mike was impressed; in fact, so impressed he was speechless with his mouth wide open...YES! Take that you LOSER! I had won...until Mike mentioned to me that my eyebrow was barely visible.
I can never win! Eyebrows...I am adding you to my four-letter-word list!
