Oh Dearie Me,

So I decided that I was going to get my eyebrows waxed, because I have been far too lazy to tweeze them all.the.time. Which is how frequently I would have to do it. So I went to a little hair place today to get them done.

8 bucks. Ok, not bad, but it is still 8 bucks. But being that I looked like two caterpillars took up residence on my forehead I decided to go for it. After all these are trained professionals who know what they are doing, right?


First of all, it hurt like a mother fucker. Nothing like being able to feel each hair being ripped from its' follicle.


Then comes the tweezing, because my hair is so dark they have to get the little pieces that break off under the skin out, or else I look peppered.

The woman stands back and admires her handiwork. And it did look good.

But she wasn't happy with it. Something about it being uneven.

So on goes more wax, to my right eyebrow. Then RIPPPPPPPPPP. And then I hear, Oh shoot. I got that one too thin.

I am thinking, just thin the other one. I don't want super thin brows, but I want them even, so thin the other one. She messes around a bit, and then hands me the mirror.

All I could do was laugh.

Because I would have cried otherwise. She took a huge chunk out of my right eyebrow, right in the middle of it. Left like three hairs there, so it really stood out.

I told her to thin the other one so it was not so noticeable.

She then tells me I won't be charged for it, since she messed up.

Uh, yeah.

So I had to go to Target with my cycloptic eyebrow, and buy a brow pencil. I wore my huge ass sunglasses all through Target. They covered it mostly.

I have now used the pencil and it is not so bad, but still. I have a fucked up eyebrow. Maybe I should just go get it pierced and be done with it.

This shit, I couldn't make up if I tried. Only to me, only to me.
