Nose Hair

A pondering:

I understand why nose hair exists and approve of God/god’s invention of it. After all, without it, we’d all look like little kids with their non-nose-hair-having-selves, snot constantly dripping down our collective cheeks.

What I don’t understand, Most High, is why nose hair has to grow. Why do some people have to trim it to keep it from growing too long? Our noses stop growing and we don’t develop a greater need for nosehair after we reach a certain age, so why can’t it just stay the length it is right at this moment?

I ask, can you please freeze all nose hair growth from this day forward?

If you want to end up with monkey eyebrows, trim them; I prefer gel(there are different strengths of gels) to keep them from looking like crazy hairs.

what i hate is when someone doesnt know their nose hair needs to be trimmed and they have long hairs protruding out of their nostrils into plain view, keep them suckers trimmed. or women with mustaches its so hard to look them in the face and ignore the fact that she has a black peach fuzz mustache like a 15 year old boy.

Don’t trim your nose hairs. It hurts like the dickens, but plucking is the only reasonable option. Trimming them will leave you with short, sharp stubs that will grow back into long, sharp stubs that will stab your nostril. Plucking the hairs starts a new hair folicle which will be finer and softer. Better to have a new, fresh harvest next month than to face the revenge of the foliage.

What is this then?
