I have alot of European blood flowing through my veins much of it I believe must come from the Mediterranean (explains my love of red wine and good food!) I have an olivey (is that even a word?) complexion and a darkish (word?) thick full head of hair which is a curse most days especially with the humid summer we’ve had and with this curse and age comes the dreaded facial hair. I have my eyebrows waxed usually once a month, which again with age are starting to grow up into my temples and forehead! (how do you like me so far???) I started going to a new place in a town near me and it’s run by a beautiful, petite asian woman with a very strong accent. The last time I visited her she was preparing my eyebrows for the not so much-anticipated ripping of the facial hair. She was looking at my face and said ” Ohhhh you have alota hair eh?, I can do your lip?” I politely said as my face is getting red and hot “oh no thankyou just my eyebrows” she continued with “Ohhhh how bout your chin I can do your chin?” I once again said “no thankyou” at this point any shred of dignity and femininity had left me! Once she was finished I paid her, with no tip this time, and dragged my crushed self to the car, I still couldn’t help but laugh. I have not been back to see her as my self-esteem could not take it.
Note: This has become yet another family joke.
Which brings me to why I decided to write this post, here it comes Deb a copied piece of info…:) I found some great information on this website earthclinic.com
This is my personal uncopied note Deb calcium interferes with iron so this “concoction” is best taken with a non – dairy product like Rice Milk or in tea or hey just straight up or on toast!
