I remember one time coming to visit you in the hospital and a mustache was growing above your lip. I couldn’t understand this. I get it now, growing hairs in unwanted places. Although in your case, I’m sure the medications didn’t help. I also didn’t understand why someone didn’t shave you. I wanted to crawl in bed with you and at the same time I was deathly afraid.
I’ve had my lip hairs removed through laser treatment. Why not? There are a few stragglers here and there, but it beats looking like Sam Elliot only with dark hair. There are some stragglers on my chin. I swear they grow overnight. One time I was driving and I looked in my rear view mirror and saw this black thing hanging off my chin. What? It was a hair. Thinking it was a loose hair, I tried brushing it off, but no, it was attached with a root and all. I tried pulling it. All that did was make the hair curl and then I looked like I had a pubic hair resting on my chin. I continued to pull until that sucker came out. For the life of me I can’t seem to grow hair on my eyebrows in the places that are sparse. Can’t grow hair where you want it and yet it blossoms where you don’t. But I got creative and now have a comb-over eyebrow. Who would’ve thought?
I think everyone has problems with hair—either wanted or unwanted.
