Daily Prompt Just Another Day. Our days our organized around numerous small actions we repeat over and over. What’s your favorite daily ritual?
My favorite daily ritual is pulling the hair out of my face with tweezers. I’ve been told the hairs don’t show but they show up pretty damn good in bright light with bifocals and a magnifying mirror. You just aren’t looking close enough.
Grandma used to lie on the sofa by the big lamp with her small bedside lamp and a magnifying mirror propped up on her tummy, tweezing long hairs from her chin. She’d ask me to take a look and get the ones she missed. It didn’t hurt, she said.
Lip hairs hurt. They hurt your pride. They make you feel like your own grandma. I know there’s stinky creams and lasers and waxing and whatnot, but there’s nothing like yanking the little bastards out, one by one, the old fashioned way. Yeah, I just love that.
