The Weird Eye Hair

Sometimes, I get this weird, clear, brittle hair that grows out of my bottom right eyelid. Often, I don't notice it until it's about six inches long. That must be pretty damn gross for people who see me every day and yet no one has mentioned it. I pull it out when I notice it, but, obviously, if it can hang down my face and curl up over my cheek before it bothers me, I'm not the best judge of how it comes across aesthetically. Anyway, the other day I caught it when it was just an inch or so long and yanked it out, and I felt like I'd achieved some great victory over my body. But it does have me a little freaked out that I might be growing quite a few weird, clear, very long, brittle hairs from some place I never see--say my back or my butt.

I'm dreading the day my husband starts growing those errant ear hairs. He's pretty hairy anyway except for his head, so the day is coming.

Yeah, I didn't want to say anything about the pain, but it hurts, especially since the hair is brittle, so you give it a good yank--ouch--and then you are only holding half the hair and you have to go back after the rest of it.
