You are NOT invisible

Dear old man in the Stop and Shop parking lot,

While I applaud your sense of personal grooming - a habit that we all should pay attention to - I do not think your car is the best place to be violently pulling at your ear hair in the hopes that it will come out.  Firstly, because that works much better with a handy little device called a tweezer (seriously, they are not that expensive).  And secondly, unless you are in the back of a limo or have those fancy tinted windows, EVERYONE CAN SEE YOU!

What is it about being in your car that makes people think they cannot be seen by other people? I myself, have occasionally fallen into this trap.  Except I know I do it and don't really care.  In fact, I kind of like the idea of someone having a little laugh at my air-guitaring expense if it means I've brightened their day a bit.

But I can tell you this - watching someone pull at their ear hair really did not brighten my day.

Not unlike the people who picks their nose in bumper to bumper traffic. And somehow it always ends up being the car right behind me. A friend of mine wants a video monitor in the rear of her car that she can type messages in. Like "Hey! Gross! We can see you!"

I do it. I pick my ears, my nose. My car is like my room, it's not my fault the walls are transparent. "Eyes on the road, people. *flick* Nothing to see here."

Ear hair...one of mother natures many cruel jokes on the human race...

No. That is not day brightening. My father has ear hair. God, how I pray that it is passed only on the Y chromosome and I am saved from his fate.

come to L.A. We got a ton of professional nose pickers here.

don't ask but Google has sometimes been leaving my comments under my kid's blog and here it is: Phoebe's pretty pictures. Might have to do something about that one.

From time to time, I covertly scope out my husband to make sure he's not yet fallen victim to the rampant ear hair situation his father has, and then pray it never strikes him...because honestly, I'm the type of wife who will be picking at HIS ear hair at traffic lights just to clean that stuff up!

Why can't we go bald in our ears? And what IS the deal with nose hair long enough to braid. I will be that old guy shortly...
