The disobediant eyelash

    It's bad enough that I have "cowlicks" in my hair (spots where hair grows in a different direction making it stick up in places) but now I've got an eyelash doing the same thing. All my eyelashes curl up except for this one on the left eye that points straight out and slightly down. Why can't it stand at attention like the other good little soldiers? :frown:

    I try to glue it to the others with mascara, but that doesn't work so well. I am thinking about taking an eyelash curler to it, but those things kinda scare me. Pulling it out would probably hurt like hell, so I'm not so inclined to do that.

    I've gotten so frustrated before that I *did* pull it out with tweezers. Yeah, it hurts.

    My eyebrows are starting to do that now. I always wondered why my eyebrow liner came with "glue", now I know.

    MIH - I, too, am cursed with numerous cow licks and errant eyelashes. One in particular grows straight into my eye.

    To my great surprise, plucking eyelashes isn't very painful, it's just scary as heck!

    Plucking eybrow hairs hurts far, far worse, for me.

    I would never pluck an eyelash, wouldn't it feel like you were going to tear your eyelid off?

    The disobedient eyelash sounds a like a perfect match for the Watchful Poker Chip of H. Matisse.

    It could make you the star of a cult following! :rofl:

    Nah, mine just pull right out.

    I only did it because this one hair grows right into my eye. I don't have much choice.

    I am glad to know that I am not the only one who has to put up with this!

    What I hate is plucking that one nose hair that suddenly pops out of your nostril and wraps around the side of your nose.

    That happens to everyone...right? :uhh:

    Isn't that what happened to Sigourney Weaver in Alien?

    My nose hairs are white. Do you think I should dye them?

    It's a Ray Bradbury story.

    Of course, in today's pop culture, I think Evo's nose hair would have more box office appeal. What suspense!

    I think you have stumbled on a new product: Nose-hair dye kits.

    There already are special products on the market for dying um.. the carpet to match the drapes.

    So, hey, why not something to match up the nose hair?

    I was useing a eyelash curler once, then a BIG spider came crawling down the mirror, and I ended up ripping about half of them out as I jumped. I don't use eyelash curlers anymore.
