I now have two looong white hairs, one in each eyebrow. They are the thickness of CAT-5 cable and defy the powers of ordinary tweezers. For reals, I thought I was going to have to get a pair of plyers from the Ms. Fix-it Kit my father prepared for me before my move. Which would be fitting, since I believe these hairs are part of my inheritance from him (together with a tendency to be a babblepuss, an affection for most types of music, and an allegedly yi-normous IQ, if you believe in that sort of thing.)

I can just picture him packing the kit: “Poor little lamb, she doesn’t know these plyers are for the preternaturally long white EYEBROW HAIRS she’s about to grow ANY SECOND NOW.”
