Give It Time...
I'm driving my car, minding my own business, when I casually glance at my left forearm. I notice a hair... Apparently, a little stray hair fell out of my head and landed on my arm. You know, usually when that happens, a friend or colleague that your talking to will pick it off of you and you go on your merry way..I swipe at it. So, no big deal, until I notice it again at a red light. I swipe at it again and I'm off.
Fast forward 4 hours...I'm sweeping the patio when lo and behold, that little bugger is back. Ok, so now I'm thinking what a stubborn hair. Well, this hair was soooo stubborn it decided to plant itself on my arm for all eternity. Yep, it was growing out of my forearm....longer that some of the hairs on my head. There is was, all shiny and blondish and just flowing all by it self in the middle of my arm surrounded by NOTHING! I don't have hairy arms people...let's get that straight. In fact, I'm not hairy at all....except for my face and we won't EVEN go there right now. I was appalled. I studied it, I examined it and I could have curled it with a curling iron, that's how long it was. How did I miss that one long hair for so long is beyond me. Then...I was mysmerized by it. Wow...a long ass hair on a part of my body that's not suppose to have long ass hair on it. I exam my other arm...no long hair there...hmmmm, why this arm, I wondered. I let it be because now, I'm kinda dig'n the one long hair and I want Eric to see it when he comes home. Which reminds me of the story of when Eric and I were dating about 21 years ago and we were out in the sunlight talking to each other very closely, eye to eye, you know, we were in love, when he tells me, "You know you have a little hair on your upper lip"......GAWD...no wonder I married him. Anyways, he comes home and I'm chewing at the bit to show him, apparently I'm proud now of the fact that I can grow hair in odd places. I drag him into the kithchen, the best light in the house and I show him. My bald husband tells me "Wow, I could use some of that can you grow some more"? I'll see what I can do honey, just give it time.
