Speaking of Laughter

I nearly wet my pants 20 minutes ago telling Anastasia what our son did. We were both laughing so hard we couldn't understand each other on the phone. She kept asking my Why? Why? Why did he do it? I don't freakin know!

He's definitely his father's son, that's all I can say. Nearest thing I could guess is that he was trying to take attention away from the fact that he lost the cell phone that his father provides him. He lost it while he was in Chicago this weekend. My other guess, is that he didn't like them long.

What the freak am I talking about?

He shaved half of each eyebrow with his electric shaver! Yup, he looks like a freaking Groucho Marx caricature, except he shaved the stache this weekend so he's just got Groucho eyebrows.
This is the best photo I could get. He is missing close to an inch on each eyebrow (the section closest to his ears). I think you can tell pretty much from this photo. He kept deliberately raising his eyebrows while I was trying to get the shot. I'm so glad these eyebrows will be in his Graduation Photo which will be taken tomorrow. And they will be in his school yearbook. He mentioned something about that his best friend's eyebrows were shorter, so maybe this eyebrow shaving thing is going around the school?

Anastasia asks me what the hell was I doing that I didn't know what he was doing. He was in the freakin bathroom, I thought he was using the toilet. He shaved his face yesterday (finally) so I know he wasn't in there shaving. He won't have to shave his beard for at least a week, if not 2 weeks.

Then Anastasia keeps asking me what I'm going to do about it. What the freak do you want me to do about it? Do you want me to get an eyebrow pencil and draw in the missing eyebrows?

If I can get him to sit still long enough in the morning before school I'll snap a shot with the digital camera and post it, but I can't make any promises. (What can I say, I'm all about my bloggers!)

Jeez I'm hoping the school nurse doesn't call me. I think she has me on speed dial by now.

At least he didn't shave his hair although that might have been better than having half eyebrows. LOL

I am Harriet said...

You deserve a good laugh!

So did you ask him why he did it? Does he like his new look?

We NEED a picture.

I am looking forward to the photos. I am all about throwing loved ones under the bus to make readers laugh. If you find out the motivation behind the eyebrow shaving, let us know.

Lou said...

If it helps, I've heard you can put Rogaine on your brows to make them grow back faster. I've never tried it because I'm scared the Rogaine will drip and I'll end up with a patch of black hair on my eyelid or my cheekbone, but maybe it's worth the risk in your son's case.

I thought you had a picture of little Tattoo from Fantasy Island on your page. Bummer, dude.
