No, I'm not surprised

Was back at the gym today and really pushed myself as I could feel the KFC Banquet for One still sitting in my tummy. Needless to say, I ended up sweating like a panicked rioter in a balaclava caught between the police and a burning building. So I used my very useful gym towel and wiped my face a couple of times, completely forgetting that my eyebrows are just drawn on, and excessive rubbing makes them disappear.

I am now debating on whether or not I should have my eyebrows tattooed - it would certainly avoid incidents such as these. But I am worried that because my eyebrows are nearly non-existent, the beautician might put in a set of eyebrows separate from where my normal eyebrows are; so that when my eyebrows do grow back, I will end up with two sets.

This is just one of the things that keeps me up at night.


  1. Surely it would be easier to simply train a couple of caterpillars? You'd need to make sure they were twins though (ie the same colour) or it might look a tad weird!

    Yes..I have been drinking!

  2. Go for it (tattoo, not train caterpillars, that sounds like too much hard work). The brow is normally on top of the eye socket, so your lady should be able to locate where your hair will grow back. Use it as an opportunity to have whatever brow you have always wanted (a salma Hayek, a Cindy Crawford, whatever) and when the real deal reappears, if they do not conform have them lasered off! This is an opportunity to reinvent your brow! Xxx

  3. Think about it, sis. One slip of the tattoo needle might give you a surprised look forever. Hehe. Love ya, browless or otherwise. - Lito

    Ditch the tatooed brows i say! Just drawing them on could be a means of expressing how you feel that day! Pointy brows when you feel like a bitch, droopy brows when you're sad, thick brows when you want to go retro, and so on and so forth =) And no brows when you go to the gym of course.
