I NEED TO GET OUT MORE - PART THREE
The Annoying Rogue Eyebrow Hair Dude
If you missed Part one and two, you can find them here @ http://joeh-crankyoldman.blogspot.com/2015/12/i-need-to-get-out-more-part-one.html and http://joeh-crankyoldman.blogspot.com/2015/12/i-need-to-get-out-more-part-two.html
In Part Two, I spoke of a dapper African American gentleman who was stuck sitting next to the annoying talking lady. He was a very nice man; too nice, and too polite to make the annoying talking lady shut up.
This man was very well dressed, well groomed and seemed in many ways to have impeccable taste and style. Except for one flaw.
He had on his right eyebrow, the only eyebrow I could see from my vantage point in the seat behind the annoying talking lady, one very long eyebrow hair. The hair curled out and down and looked as if it grew only a little more it would grow right into his eyeball.
He had a rogue eyebrow hair and did not even know it. The annoying talking lady did not notice. She was too self absorbed to notice anything.
I could not take my eye off the rogue eyebrow hair.
Surely a man of his style, and taste, a man who could only be described as dapper except for this one flaw, surely he would want to be told of the rogue eyebrow hair.
How does one go about tactfully telling someone he has a rogue eyebrow hair that is most disconcerting to anyone who sees it?
Finally I could take it no more. Between the annoying talking lady who would not shut up, and not being able to take my eye off this rogue hair that threatened to impale the eye of this seemingly very nice man, I had to take action.
I leaned forward, tapped him on the shoulder and said,
“Excuse me sir, this may seem a strange request, but would you mind very much if I just yanked that rogue eyebrow hair of yours out of your friggin scull? It is driving me crazy!”
Well, actually I didn’t do any of that, but I sure wanted to!
