Nose Hairs

August 12, 2008

Continuing with yesterday’s delightful conversation, let’s talk nose hair.

As we get older, we not only lose the hair on our heads, but father time slaps us in the face two times and puts it back in places you’d never guess or prefer. The ear, the nose, the neck, the back… I can almost hear Khia’s song My Neck, My Back queuing up.

Thankfully (again), I’m not a very hairy fella so I don’t think I’d have the neck/back problem. The ears haven’t started yet either (if they ever will), but the nose hairs, like the hills, are alive with the sound of music.

Perhaps it’s me just being overly paranoid of visible nose hairs (it’s one of the first things I notice on other peeps), but I take my nose hair grooming seriously. I don’t want them to show, plus da buggahs tend to itch the insides pretty good if they get too long.

Grooming for me consists of a periodic snipping with those little scissors and a once in a while weed whack-like mowing of the whole yard with those electric trimmer-type deals. I know the hairs are there for a reason (right?), but sometimes I just get the urge to chop-chop and not have to worry about it for a few weeks, yahurrdme?

Talk to me!
* Am I the only one out there with this fetish/peeve?
* What are some of your rituals/secrets?
* Ladies, do these things bother you (nose/ear/neck/back hairs)?
