Genetics are super cool and interesting.  Until, that is, you get your Dad's eyebrows!

See, I've started having some grey hair.  A few in my temple area, but a couple, recently, in my eyebrows.

Which wouldn't ordinarily be a huge deal cuz you can just colour over them or whatever the fancy makeup term is, but these hairs are wild and crazy.

They do NOT follow the natural flow of regular hairs which means they stick out like crazy.  (As do my Dad's famously wild eyebrows!)  And this last one that came up, half of it was normal and then apparently the other half decided to grow white and disorderly so it was extra super long and half white and the white part was crooked so it stuck out!  GAH!

I really have no idea how to handle these suckers so I'm just hoping they won't... you know, reproduce or anything. 

And at least I also got my Dad's sense of humour... although that may be less genetics and more what I grew up with!

I was lucky enough to get both my grandfather's and father's eyebrows and furry ears. Doubly whammy; both generations and both not the place for rogue hairs.

they pluck deeper than scissor skin level & repeated plucking weakens the root ... or so I have read.
