Weekend Thoughts

This weekend, I got my eyebrows threaded for the first time in my life.

Amazing! I usually get them waxed, but this was much better.

No muss, no fuss. No hot cauldron of bubbling wax, no strips to rip off my face, no screaming pain with tweezers.

This woman was very skilled. She took out a spool of thread, did a few loops of it onto her fingers, held it like you do in Cat's Cradle, ran it over my face a few times, and voila! Nicely trimmed brows!

I bet if she studied the art a little more, she could figure out how to kill a man with that spool of thread. Ninja-like.

He wouldn't even know what hit him; he'd be walking down the street, she'd come up to him and FLOOP! His head would slice off in one even cut, and thump onto the ground.

I'm telling you, this woman was that good.

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
