Calling all readers: I NEED YOU NOW!!

I have a question for you. I'm being dead serious, and this is a begging plea for response from each and every one of you, regardless of whether you follow openly or vaguely or creepily.


In case you don't have an answer at the ready, allow me to elaborate.

Our ward has been engaged in a Pumpkin Heist competition, and my apartment is heavily involved.

Exhibit A:

Protection: Raccoon traps and rat traps. We ain't never lost a pumpkin.

Exhibit B:

Ya, that was for the sake of pumpkins. Spontaneous guitar song + chomping down an onion = distraction for everyone while someone else escapes out the back door with a stolen pumpkin.

The pumpkins will be counted and the winner announced tomorrow night at a ward Halloween party. We are 2 behind an apartment full of guys who we despise, but only because they are currently winning. 

We've tried negotiating. They say one of us must shave our head or our eyebrows. Dottie and I think we're ready for this. Is this just a crazy late night fascination?

Pros: There aren't any men in my life right now and I only do college once. It's hat season and I could chop down my bangs--the timing is ideal for both. After extensive research (2 uncited google-search pages), it looks as though the hair will grow back normally and within two months. Celebrity status. Glory.

Cons: The obvious.

Comment up! Not a one of you is exempt. I value your logic.
Remain anonymous, if that will make you feel better.
I beg your loyalty. Beg.

Eyebrows, eyebrows, eyebrows. I just can't get them off my mind, or my face. 


  1. I'd say go for it, but I'm a little biased.

  2. Under normal circumstances, I would normally advise against such a thing. But, this is dire. You absolutely must win this competition, and if this is the only be it. They will grow back and it's easy to hide. But, once done, I must see a picture. Just saying. You better win!

  3. dooon't do it. my sister shaved hers, and they have never ever been the same since. it's a bad idea.

  4. Ack. Never. My aunt killed her eyebrows on accident with mere plucking, and they look terrible. (Please bless that she never reads this.)

    Of course, I suppose plucking may have a different effect than shaving. I've never heard of something NOT growing back after being shaven...

  5. Hmmmm ... As the male voice in this string of comments, I say, do it. You already took the plunge of eating that onion, so why not? If you're really embarrassed about the way it looks, you can always cut some hair off the top of your head and just ... relocate it.
