My Lips Are Waxed

I've never thought of myself as being old.  I don't have grey hair, I still think of myself as 25 and I got carded yesterday.  Yes, that's right - a 38 year old got carded!  Waa Hoo!!!

However, I've finally decided to acknowledge a problem I know that I've had for some time.  My upper lip was starting to look like the testosterone was taking over a little too much.  In asking my sister if it looked like it was darker, she said that it looked fine (bless her heart, she didn't want my wrath).  In light of our upcoming trip, I decided to do something about it.

Let me back up a little.  The last time we were in Vegas, I was walking through a casino, and 2 drunk guys stumbled by me.  One of them said something to me, something that sounded like "nice moustache".  I'm sure that's not what he said, he probably said something like "I need cash", but then again, I'm pretty sure he didn't.

So the wheels started turning.  You know how when you stare in the mirror at your eyebrows, and pretty soon they are big and black and bushy, and it's all you can see?  Well, that's what my upper lip looked like.  Couple that to the fact that I'm sure I grew a mini beard when I had my kids (that my hubby made sure I knew about, just in case I couldn't see it myself), I have a complex about facial hair.

So, yesterday I took the bull by the horns.  I did an at home wax kit - sorry, not paying $35 to have my brows and 'stache waxed when I can do it myself for $5.  I am pretty sure it worked, although it's still a little too pink to tell for sure, but hey, it couldn't be worse, right?

I am coming to the realization that bad things happen as we age.  Facial hair, sagging body parts, memory loss....

Now....what was I saying?

I probably need to do that too! I'm so jealous you got carded. If my newly forming wrinkles didn't give me away, then they would definitely notice my grey roots. Lol! :)
