Yet Another Suprise From Father Time

Last night after a fun filled evening of temper tantrums, whining, cleaning of snotty noses and diaper changes and dog rescues (they were hanging from his ears) I finally got the kids to bed put my feet up and switched on the TV. Suddenly I was affronted with a most horrible sight three long, course, black hairs were protruding from my big toe. In horror I lept from the couch before my husband could see the trees that had sprung from my toes and ran around the house in a desperate search for an iron forged super sized tweezers to wrestle the black monsters away from my aging tootsies.

Now I know I am getting older. Yes another birthday is swiftly approaching. But even age needs some limits. I have resigned myself to the usual aging things. I know that if I even look at a cupcake I immediately gain 5 pounds where as when I was 20 I could drop 5 pounds just from dancing to a hip tune by a Boy George. I know that even though I could stay awake till 4am when I was in my twenties I now need to be in bed by 9:30 lest I risk drooling open mouthed on the couch (a sexy sight). I know that although I used to be able to read the jokes on a bubble gum wrapper with ease it now takes a magnifying glass, some bifocals and a pair of x ray specs to even be able to read the warning label on a bottle of Geritol. I get it Age! I'm aging! I'm old! But this? My toes?

To quote my son Not Nice Age! Not Nice!

Last night I dreamt that I had so much hair under my arms and on my ahem, chest...and I forgot to wax it off and my husband was trying to have sex with me...I was mortified. Then, luckily I woke up.

Think about that next time you notice a hairy big toe.

:)

So funny you should mention this. I'm off to a hair removal appointment right now! Don't know if it's worth it for toes though. I'd just extend the leg shaving a little lower...

I'm with Kate...I routinely shave my does whether they need it or not!

I really like your blog...your header is great.

I'll be back for another visit soon!

stupid toe hair. stupid aging. stupid cupcakes.

Kmommy said...

HaHa! I also have to shave my big toes! Horrendous! And horribly embarrassing :)

Aimee said...

Thankfully, I've yet to get toe hair, but I've got plenty of other things that age me! :)

Courtney said...

Lovely toe hair. Aging is not nice or funny!

Vered said...

Aging is cruel.

Psst... men don't notice these things.

:-)

Andrea said...

haha...that is too funny. ;) I don't even want to risk looking at my toes now!!

Heather said...

Don't worry, it happens to all of us. I don't worry about my toes as much as my chin. I remember, I used to snicker behind my Grandma's back because of her chin whiskers. Now God is punishing me for it.

Sue said...

Ouch tweezers! That hurts. Use a razor, less pain. The only thing men need to shave is their face and they don't even have to if they don't want to. Woman have to shave everything, another thing men have easier then woman!

Annie said...

Aging sucks. A couple of weeks ago I found a chin hair. Are you kidding me with this??????

Just a Girl in a Port said...

Oh yes, I know of what you speak. I once wrote a funny story (I think) about wrinkle cream. Maybe you can relate.

Aging sucks a duck.

Mama Zen said...

Hey, at least you can still see your toes at that distance!

The Mrs. said...

ew toe hairs. I think I'm learning a bit much about you all at once. This friendship needs to slow down.

Erin said...

What is with hairy toes, before i went into the hospital (after my water broke) i needed to shave my legs and toes (stupid toe hair) and i managed to cut my toe in the process LOL to which everyone in the hosptial kept questioning, what happened to your toe. I was mortified about shaving my toes (yes they were all looking at my whoo ha, and i'm worried about what people think of me shaving my toes) so i lied and said i dropped the razer trying to shave my legs LOL

Colleen said...

Oh, I'm right there with you on that one, except my toe hair sprouted much earlier. I've been battling it for years. I'll tell ya this much, though, I'd rather pluck hair from my pretty pink parts than from the tops of my toes. HOLY CRAP!!! I stick with shaving it or using a dipiliatory (yeah, there's enough to consider using that) but plucking? NO WAY!
