And I had no idea that visible white thread could transform you into a super model.
If you've ever wondered why those Bollywood women are so darn exotic it's because they pluck their eyebrows with thread.
You heard me. They thread their eyebrows. And now they thread my eyebrows too.
And also my daughter's eyebrows, who has agreed to be my before and after super model for this post.
But before I bring her out here I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you all that I have a great great grandmother who came from India. She's great. And she provided me with years of entitlement whenever my husband said, "Oh, you're so cute, honey."
Thanks to my great great grandmother I always felt like I could add, "I'm exotic too. Don't forget I'm EXOTIC."
He never picked up on it though. Cute. That's all I ever got. He never asked me to belly dance or stick shiny jewels to my forehead.
So two years ago I accidentally found out that while my great great grandmother was great, she wasn't exotic. She was portugese.
She was a port-a-gee. Living in India.
My husband chuckled when he heard the news. "Told you you were just cute," he said.
But that hasn't stopped me from trying to break the mysterious code of the exotic, which is why I said "HECK Yea!" when my friend called to see if I wanted my eyebrows threaded.
I signed my daughter up too because you're never too young to go from geek to sheek.
So here's my daughter before she was a super model:
How cool is that?
Tomorrow I'm going to post the super model photos after her fairy godmother turned her into a Disney princess for her Freshman Banguet.
I'm also going to show you my accidental impression of that freaky one-eyed horse on Man From Snowy River. Plus a nice shot of my fillings and my upper lip, which is now as smooth as a baby's bottom after my Indian hair remover yanked out my entire moustache with a spool of magic thread.
OWIE!!! She said it hurt so bad because it was full grown. (HOW RUDE!) She also said I have dry skin.
Hello! I live in Hawaii. Hawaiians don't have dry skin!
P.S. Guess what my husband said tonight? He said, and I quote, "Your blog has cool music."
YAY! I think he likes me.
