frida

"How would you like them?"
"Just cleaned up, please. Not thin."

One minute passes as the beautician prepares the wax and combs and strategizes. Then she breaks the silence.

"You have lovely eyebrows."
"Um. Thanks?"

Nearly every person who has ever waxed my eyebrows compliments them. What does it mean to have good eyebrows?

i always tell my husband he has nice eyebrows.

It's quite a compliment. Eyebrows are a sort of picture frame for the eyes themselves, which are a window to the soul and all of that riffraff.
