Pride & Prejudice & Unwanted Facial Hair
“IT is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” (Pride & Prejudice)
I felt the need to create my own, potentially universally acknowledged truisms, in the manner of Jane Austen.
I shall present one each day this week. I do hope you appreciate them, gentle reader, and I further hope that you would feel compelled in turn to offer up your own truism in the comment area.
Here is the first:
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that when one gazes into the bathroom mirror, one cannot see all the tell-tale errant hairs of one’s girlstache; however, one will see them while gazing upon oneself in the automobile mirror, paused at a stoplight, when one does not have a pair of tweezers handy.
