I have a mole on my face that—if left untended—sprouts enough hairs to resemble a small tarantula. I also have downy cheek fuzz that makes me look a bit like an Ewok. And to add insult to injury, my furriness seems to be increasing with age.
All of this to explain why I was searching Amazon.com for a “facial hair remover threading tool” the other day. Amazon suggested an array of options, ranging in cost from $0.59 to $26.39.
The cheapest options didn’t much appeal. But highest-priced of the suggestions made me laugh out loud.
Here, see for yourself:
For a brief moment, I actually considered embracing my inner pirate in all its hirsute glory—and then insisting that everyone at the office refer to me as Captain H Barbossa.
But after a cup or two of tea I regained my reason and sprang for the REM Spring Sprong instead.
I’ll let you know how it fares against the tarantula.
