Browless. Beauty or BUST?

Some mornings when I stare at myself in the mirror, I feel that I look like this:

Mona Lisa.  Or Lisa del Giocondo. . . whichever name you prefer.

Browless with a fake smile.

My first experience with brow-plucking was in junior high.  A friend of my mom’s had pointed out how unsightly and bushy they were (which is a common occurrence among Korean parents – pointing out physical flaws or “bad” behavior) and convinced my mom to let her “shape” them.

For the time being (as in these last three minutes), I’ve considered going browless.  Back in Da Vinci’s day, it was “common for genteel women to pluck [eyebrows and eyelashes] out, since they were considered to be unsightly” (thank you Wikipedia).  Though, I’d hardly consider myself a “genteel” woman.

And then of course, there’s Whoopi Goldberg.  Sexy as hell.
