Scar-let O'Hair-ah

At the dinner table Sunday night... FunnyMan says, "Mom, are you taking Steroids?"

Me: "Huh? Wha-? No... why?"

FunnyMan: "Look how hairy your arms are!"

Me: [Rolls eyes and thinks, "thanks!"]

I guess, my arms do look hairier than in the past. The past 2 summers I was always out on the trail, plus girls camp, etc. So, my arms would tan and my little hair would get sun-bleached. Now that I look at them, they do look a bit hairy. yikes! hahahahaha! Cool, you can even see a little scar on my arm...

As long as I am sharing disgusting pics of my body, here's another for our viewing pleasure...

I got this lovely war scar while fighting with some thorny bushes last weekend. And my big clippers (like 20 year old shears) busted, so I couldn't even finish the job. Anyway, looks like a nice scar is going to be there. Probably can't see it, but it is going to actually connect up with a much smaller scar from a cut I got while in high school. Cool.

haha...my arm hair is blonde so I can live with my hairy arms...but I have a friend who shaves her arm hair..seriously-arms legs, pits, everywhere. She takes longgg showers.

Yours isn't bad...but there is a lady at church that has the most MANLYish arms I've ever seen. Like it's really yucky! Sweet spirit though. ;)

I really liked that cookie said...

Haha.. you are so sweet :)
Was on the beach the other day - VERY aware of my hairy arms as well... until my friend took of her shirt to tan, she has more hair on her stomach than her head! be happy girl - man (or woman) was never meant to be hairless...

My sister had so much hair on her arms growing up she waxes it now!

LOL @ Rhonda's "sweet spirit" [inside joke]!

I do have a friend that convinced herself that her arms were too hairy. So, she has laser hair removal done on them. The problem is, she is pasty white and extremely boney/scrawny. And she has some scarring (not sure if it's from the laser or what). but I almost think her hairy arms would look better then her sickly white and scarred arms do.

Glad to know I have some other hairy-armed friends out there :)
