    Ok, another really random MFB post....

    I read. I like to read. It's fun and I enjoy it alot. There's only one teenie lil problem.....

    I'm blind as a bat when it comes to reading small print. I have no problem seeing things at a distance, just can't see things close up. So I have a pair of strong reading glasses.
    Really strong ones.
    Sorta like the bottoms out of two of those old glass 16 ounce coke bottles wired together with black wire.
    And they fold. I'm not making this up... they really do. I found them in a box of junk at the auction years ago and I loved them.

    Terra doesn't love them.
    Not even a little bit.

    But she won't read to me, so I have to wear them or I can't see to read.

    I also have another problem. My dadgum eyelashes hit my glasses and it just irritates the crap outta me. Really. It's a pain in the .... well.. eyeball.

    About once a week I go in the bathroom, look in the mirror and take a pair of scissors and cut them off about half way.
    Did I mention I can't see up close?
    Might not always be cut straight.
    But they don't hit my glasses once I'm done and I can see to read.

    I don't see any problem with it. I thought I was plumb smart... ingenious even.

    So would one of you ladies explain why every single time I do it my wife tells me she hates me?
    She even cried once. Said she would die to have calf eyelashes?

    I offered to let her just cut mine...... That didn't help either...... she was even madder.


    What's the deal with eye lashes? I just don't get it. [​IMG]

    Humans are backward - that's all!

    Eyelashes, pretty hair...etc.....all nice things to have to attract the opposite sex. In nature the guys get all the pretty feathers. Human women? We want the pretty feathers......[​IMG] How dare you cut the pretty eye feathers we try so hard to emulate!! [​IMG]

    Long eyelashes just look great! I used fake ones for a couple months. They look FABULOUS!!! I got so many compliments on my eyes. Unfortunately, it took me WAAYYYYY too much time to do them each day so I stopped. I only do them for special occassions now..but I sure do miss them. [​IMG] So, that is what it is...they just make your eyes stand out and look fab!!

    Long eyelashes enhance your eyes, and for a lot of girls, are our eyes are our best feature and we want to enhance that! And maybe she likes your eyelashes? My friend is a platinum blonde, including eyelashes and eyebrows, and she looked so good after she started using mascara.

    I'm sorry MFB but I agree with your wife I HATE YOU! only kidding! But really most women me included would die for eyelashes so long that they rub on glasses. I use a ton of mascara and still you can hardly see mine. [​IMG]

    And now there's even a prescription drug to make our eyelashes grow better. Sort of the female version of the little blue pill....

    Me, I've always wondered why a woman plucks her eyebrows out
    and then paints some new ones on.

    I never did get the whole makeup thing.

    Men look like they way they look. (Unless they cut their eyebrows or something)
    No shame.

    But a woman?....Just different.

    I'm like the Farmer Boy...big print is good stuff.

    Just show Terra what you'd look like if you didn't trim them.
