Going Rogue !

28 Dec

Ok, we all know it happens….rogue nose hairs. I noticed one this morning when I was doing my usual make up application so that I don’t look so damn tired and 150 years old.  It’s a process, people.  While dabbing on this and that, my tired eyes spotted it – the rogue nose hair.  Upon closer inspection, there it was – in plain sight and it did not want to go back into the nostril!  I cajoled it and told it I’d deal with it later, but it kept popping out.   I knew it must be dealt with or I was in for a long day.  Sure enough, in rushing to get to work I had forgotten about my new friend.   On the glorious drive to work (because this is the ONE good traffic week a year) I did a final spot check of my appearance…and DAMN, there it was!  The same nose hair was proudlly gleaming at me and I’d forgotten to clip it!   NOW WHAT??  Great, I’m going to have to get some work scissors and find a quiet spot with a mirror to try to get it.  If not, I’ll spend all day wondering if people are looking at me in conversation or “it.”   Ladies, you know it happens!   Men, well….maybe not so much.  I’ve spotted many of you that do not seem to care if you have several rogue nose hairs.  Let me tell you…it makes it really hard to concentrate on what you are saying when they are just staring at us begging to be trimmed!  God forbid when there is stuff attached to them too.  I shudder at the thought.

Do yourself a favor, when and if you spot that pesky, rogue nose hair in the mornings – STOP IT, CLIP IT, RID YOURSELF OF THE BURDEN then and there.   Don’t put it off like me.  I’ll be tucking that sucker back in all day!

Hope you all had a fantastic holiday – we have a LOT to catch up on together.

    SO thrilled you are back- your fans missed you! Excellent picture and your post had me laughing out loud. My rogue hair is a eyebrow one that grows twice as long as the others, as long as we are sharing…

    Thank you for the nice comments! I’m really excited and appreciative! I SOOO debated about that nose hair picture and my apologies to those that are grossed out…but, it conveyed the point well and made me giggle.

    WHEEEE!! Glad to see ya! My rogue is one that pops up out of nowhere on my jawline… one day I’m fine, the next day- wham! Inch-long and sticking straight out! I’m with you, though, gotta take care of it immediate or I forget, then worry all day whether people are pointing & laughing about it.

    Happy New Year, LD is back!!

      You made me laugh out loud!!! I could picture it!

    Look who’s back!!!! Awesome. And if it’s not the nose, it’s the ear. I’m a guy (I think) and it grosses me out to see older guys with brillo pads coming out of their ears…

    Happy 2012!!!!

    So good to see a post from you!

    I hear what you say about rogue hairs. I have several that keep trying to pop up on my chin. Perhaps I am just not terribly lady like, but I go for the total eradication method…pull the invader out by the roots!

    Happy New Year!
