Practicing Mindfulness Meditation during a facial wax has to be hands down the stupidest thing I’ve ever done. Immerse yourself in the moment and just experience the world? Sure, do that- just not while you’re getting hot wax poured on your face and hair pulled out by the follicles. There IS such a thing as too much multitasking, turns out- and there can be NO better example of it than this right here.
Also, my brain just repeated the word “Mindfulness” as I was trying to clear my head and be mindful. Yo brain- saying a thing and doing a thing… those are two different things.
And I really need to remember to emphasize next time that I’m fine with fuzzies around my hairline. Because there seemed to be an unreasonable amount of attention being paid to what must have been a werewolf-level hairline, frankly. Let’s focus on the upper lip, lady- all I care about is not looking like Admiral Burnsides.
Also I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT HIS SMOOTH FOREHEAD STOP RIPPING HAIR OFF OF MINE- JESUS CHRIST!
(And why would one even WANT a full face wax, you say? it’s cheaper than getting a lip and eyebrow wax separately, generally- and turns out makeup goes on way easier without the rest of the facial fuzz. Just learned ya something, I hope)
