I thought it was just me that kept a pair of tweezers in my car but the other day I discovered another close friend of mine had the same secret.
Yes we’re both (cough) forty-something (cough) and yes occasionally we’ve sat at the lights… looked in the visor mirror and almost spat out our take-away coffee.
What is THAT doing growing THERE?!!!
The problem is that at 40-something, not only do you start growing hair in unusual places but your eyesight is failing.
So it is rare for you to notice that stray hair until you are faced with the mega-magnification of that little mirror on the inside of your visor.
And even if you did notice that rogue – wtf is that doing on my face – hair… quite often, because you need glasses, you can’t do anything about it.
Have you ever tried to pluck your eyebrows, needing glasses?
Trust me - it can’t be done.
Hence the tweezers in the car.
The ultra-magnification of the mirror allows you to see the wretched rogue hairs without glasses.
Yes, you look like an idiot at the lights…
But at least you don’t look like Wicked Witch of the East when you get to work.
