Adding insult to injury

So today I grew my very own whisker. ON MY FACE. I say whisker not a hair because it wasn't soft, it was prickly. If that isn't horrendous enough, when I finally manage to extract it with a tweezer, the motherfucker was GRAY.

oh the humanity.

I have one of those that rears it's ugly head every few weeks. It makes me so mad. I try and catch it as soon as it peeks out, but many times it's not there one second and then it's there full length the next!

When I was 14 I was at a party, sitting next to a boy, and on the other side of me was the end table with a lamp on it. He looked over at me and said "That's a pretty hefty mustache you've got there."

I am so with you on this. Between the mustache, the chin whiskers, and the hairy nipples and toes? I might as well have been a monkey.

Oh No! If it makes you feel better, I have a similar issue on my chin. I'm turning into my mother!

I laughed because of the way you wrote the post!
But, working in endocrinology, a little hair on your chinny chin chin doesn't set off any alarm bells. Just annoying!

You know what NEVER occured to me? Grey pubic hair, someone mentioned recently that your pubes turn grey and I was SHOCKED....it is too much.

I forgot what I was going to type until Tracy mentioned grey pubic hairs. Retch! Horrible mental image comes to mind.

welcome to mid life hotch : ) last summer we were driving down the road and the hubs turns to me and says, wow, when the sun hits your chin just so i can see your beard. i think i called him something rather vulgar. then i became obsessed about chin hair. though most of it is soft and you can't really see it, i do have that one man hair that pops up every other week or so and i tweeze the hell out of it. i'm wondering when i'll need to start waxing. ah joy. i don't even want to think about the grey pubes.

I WISH my whiskers were grey. I have one pesky one that grows from the right side of my chin, then one that appears on the left side of my neck overnight. And they are black. Bitches.

I have bright white chin hair that keeps coming back. The bad news, I never see it till it's like an inch long - crap.

I get white whiskers growing in the area between my temple (on my SKULL, not like where I go to church) and my eyebrows. WHAT.

Also, a couple of black ones on my chin, WTH WTH WTH.

I carry tweezers in my pocket AT ALL TIMES.

I get those, too. Once, for awhile, I had one that would randomly grow in the middle of my cheek! WTF?! That one has finally given up, but I do get them sometimes on my chin. Plus, I get a few darker hairs that grow and get yanked. Sigh.

Also, I get the occasional white pube, too, since we're sharing.
