Men and Hair: Chapter 37
Friday, March 6, 2009

Women don't have this problem that men do: hair growing out of their nose.

Men and hair, a journey through life: first the hair down there that every young boy anticipates, and then that arrives and all is fine and dandy. But then, a decade later, it sprouts on the backs of the hands. Then, back of the neck. Then in and on the nose. And, finally, the ears.

Not long ago I heard a radio talk show in which a woman called in and wondered out loud: Why is it always men who are picking their noses while stopped at red lights.

"It's all the hair!"I yelled at my radio. "Things get caught in all that hair! Don't you understand?"

My dear...women have it, too. (Sorry, girls...we have kept so much from them...). I have treated as many women as men for the nose hair thing. We (women) just tend to spend alot more time on self-maintence and hiding our secrets...so it's just something else we are keeping from you... One word: LASER!

Honestly Ad, are you running out of topics to write about? This is not a good sign, my friend. Not a good sign at all.

Get real, Gonzalo. Why are (some) men so uncomfortable talking about grooming? Why stifle a subject that affects so many? It's the silent malady. I, too, have been amazed/horrified by the sudden growth spurt of unwanted/unnecessary hair that seems to accompany middle age. Used to be, all we had to worry about was shaving our chins. Now, it's daily maintenance of stray eyebrows, furry noses and hairy ears. As a gay man, maybe I'm hyperconscious of grooming, but I wish more of my straight counterparts paid attention to their overgrowth of hair. It's a major turn-off!
