Yesterday the shutter on my local eyebrow threading place went back up, and today I dashed in to book an appointment — apparently there are a lot of wooly ladies in Madrid, since it was all I could do to get a sliver of time.

When I sat down in the chair, I told my threader (threadess?) that I’d been very good about applying the almond oil recommended to get my brows to grow. She looked down, laughed, and said, “That may be — but your brows have bleached out so much by the sun, it’s hard to see them.”

I’m not sure if that’s a plus or a minus.
