Tweezer Confessions

Usually I make fun of people and we all have a good laugh. Except today because today I was one of those people. My ergonomic tweezers weren't working out. Yes, I bought ergonomic tweezers, as if that will somehow keep me from getting carpal tunnel syndrome when I don't even have an ergonomic keyboard. You know the keyboard that I type at 40+ hours a week? Yeah, that one. So the ergonomic-ness of the tweezers prevents any actual tweezing and I never really thought I looked like Brooke Shields until I bought them. So I headed over to the store, thinking how smart I am. I'm the girl who is no longer going to depend on ergonomic tweezers.

I brought my new purchase home, so proud of myself. As I was happily forming my eyebrows to look less like a Sesame Street character it hit me. I had become one of those people I constantly make fun of. What had I bought? Comfort grip tweezers with extra wide plastic handles. That's right, comfort grip. As I rip the hair from my face I don't want my fingers to hurt, makes perfect sense.

List of Things I can Never Get Right

Dating
Tweezers

:D I'd say it makes PERFECT sense to use ergonomic tweezers. Every little bit counts. And at least if you get carpal tunnel you can sue the manufacturer of your ergonomic tweezers.

Too stinkin' funny! I got sick of cheapo tweezers that can't grip a hair or splinter. So I went and paid 12 dollars for some upscale tweezers. Yes. TWELVE dollars. I tell you what, though. These babies can get ANY hair or splinter. Worth every penny. Make fun all you want but my eyebrows are deVINE.

haha how hilarious. I don't even own a pair of tweezers. My sister always plucks my eyebrows for me. haha.

Don't knock the comfort, particularly as applies to tweezing. That comfort grip is the ONLY comfortable thing about that task.

Besides, men appreciate a comfort grip, so right off the bat, you have that in common.

I have never even heard of ergonomic tweezers! Have you ever considered getting your eyebrows threaded? It looks like an interesting alternative to tweezering, ergonomic or not. :)

If dating and tweezers are the only items on your list, you're actually doing quite well.

comfort makes things like tweezing much more bearable!
