a gray shouldn't be a big deal... but AN EYEBROW HAIR!!???!

#*&$^(*@#&$^ Is all I wanted to say this morning when I plucked an eyebrow hair and *gasping, stepping away from the mirror* it was a GRAY eyebrow hair.....my first. I know it has been a stressful week, but really, this is uncalled for.
Now for anyone who has gray eyebrows, please forgive me, this is a point of vanity. It all goes back to who's grandma do I resemble the most. Of course I do not take after my mom's side of the family, petite blond, firm tush until you are 70 (no kidding).
No, I take after Dad's side, SADDLEBAGS that are rivaled ONLY by those ladies in those romantic-era paintings, and, yes, bushy eyebrows that turn gray and sproinky in old age. I love my sproinky-eyebrowed grandma, she made fantastic mac n cheese, but PLEEEESSSEEEE, I do not want to have her butt or her eyebrows!!!!! (Oh have mercy!!!)
So, the offending hair is plucked. I will be looking for more. After I ended my work day, I didn't go buy a bottle of wine to drown my eyebrow sorrows, instead, I went for a run. Intervals. Believe me, they kicked my saddlebags.
I have hope again.
