something to honk about
If hair on our head is governed by a growth cycle largely determined by genetics, then it stands to reason that hair elsewhere on our bodies is as well. Which may mean that if I make every effort to grow longer, healthier hair on my head, those efforts could also result in longer, healthier – leg hair. Or armpit hair.
Right? As it stands, genetics has gifted me with very light, minimal body hair. One of the things about my body I am quite happy with, thanks.
I wonder what the world record for longest armpit hair is? Or longest pubic hair? My father-in-law has an eyebrow hair that is at least five inches long. That may not be a world record. But I’m sure it is at least a town record. I’ve seen the hair, it is pretty impressive. Someone ought to measure it before it sheds. But not me. Eww, gross.
I like head hair, but other hair is kind of gross, isn’t it? Even head hair, as soon as it falls out and, gets caught in a drain say, becomes immediately gross. Fingernails are the same. If someone didn’t have fingernails on their hands THE ABSENCE would be gross. So fingernails in a way, prevent fingers from being gross. But as soon as you clip fingernails, those trimmings immediately become gross. Weird.
Wait? Did you actually read this? I told you not to! What were you thinking?
