I have begun to realize why we have hair - I know this is a new revelation. I walked outside the other day without a hat. It took me 0.02 seconds to run - actually run - back inside to get a hat. It could have also been that it was -4 degrees outside.
I have come to appreciate other body hair as well - take nose hair for example. Did you know that it keeps the snot in your nose? I remember when I had my septoplasty and I could all of the sudden breathe, but the I also realized I sneeze a lot more. Well without nose hairs I sneeze even more. So add this to the hiccup-burp (herps) and you get the snherps. And yes the all seem to happen at the same time - in the same order - sneeze, hiccup, burp. Round and round and round we go. Also my nose has become a faucet. It drips. Yes it is winter, but it is WAY worse.
I am having a love hate relationship with my head hair. It is growing - now is kinda scraggly. I need to get it cut. Who would have thought I needed a hair cut. But it is also thinner - much thinner. It sticks up in the wrong places... not long enough to spike it but not short enough to comb it down.
My eyelashes are falling out as well. They seem to fall right into my eyes as well every time they fall out. I put on mascara to day and looked like a really bad stripper or transvestite with clumpy eyelashes. It was bad!! I am not sure what to think of this. The best part is that my mom bought me perminent eyeliner last Christmas - thank goodness! I still have the illusion of eyelashes. Yes it is just hair - but for some reason losing eyebrows and eyelashes make me feel like a cancer patient. At least with just the head hair I could cover it up... guess I am going to have to learn how to draw it on. However, please yell at me if I ever do this....
