Hairy Eyeballs and Other Oddities

Sorry in advance for the expletives, I’m in pain and worried I’m becoming a Yeti!

So I’m in the shower earlier (sorry for the visual if you are eating right now. Not pretty!) and I’m washing my hair with Nioxin. Yes, it’s for hair growth. After 3 kids and a million pounds of stress, I’m going bald. A 31 yr old balding woman, another great visual.

Anywho… I’m washing my hair and I get Nioxin in my eye! OUCH! Well all I can think is “Shit, now I’m going to get hairy eyeballs!” Just great. Now I’m a 31 yr old bald woman with hairy eyeballs!

When talking to Knitschmidt online she asked “How does the Nioxin know to grow hair on just your head. Just Sayin'”

Double Shit. Now not only am I a 31 yr old bald woman with hairy eyeballs, I am worried that while rinsing the Nioxin out that I’m getting a hairy back and chest. I mean, what is hotter than that?! At the same time my oldest will be growing hair on his chest due to puberty, I will growing hair on mine due to runaway chemicals that are supposed to know to stay on my scalp!

I need a drink.

And a wig.

    I guess if you are using one, you might want to cover places where you do not want some hair to grow. I think putting on goggles to avoid hair eyeballs (LOL!). Put some plastic over your body, a raincoat or something like that. plus rain boots.

    Changes comes along every stage of life. Changes tied of hair loss, menopausal stage and many more causing hormonal imbalance in which most men and women counting on to resolve and prevented.

    Just wondering, Em, if you have had your thyroid checked. It is extremely common in women our age. It causes thinning hair, weight gain, lethargy, and more wonderful things we could all do without!

    Not just on your head, how does it know to only grow it on humans?

    Think about all the little hairy fish that are going to be living down stream from your house soon.

    Wait…is that how God made anchovies?

    You act like giving someone the “hairy eyeball” is a bad thing! Of course what is really funny is that while I am reading this “Werewolves of London” is playing on the radio.

    I think a redheaded werewolf running around giving people the “hairy eyeball” would not stand out at all.
