The Importance of Eyebrows

Eyebrows are definitely under-appreciated. True, not as forgotten as, let’s say, our ever-important bile ducts or the workmanship-like spleen. And how many of you out there even know we have a tiny organ in our chest called the thymus? But our unappreciated eyebrows, those hairy arches that divide our foreheads from the rest of our face deserve a lot of credit for distinguishing us from the rest of God’s creatures (well, not really, but I really wanted to say that), and keeping us from looking like characters from an X-Files episode.

It is true that for some, eyebrows can be a bane. The unibrow remains a universally bad look, and for some women, eyebrow plucking and waxing is akin to torture.

But for me, now temporarily eyebrowless in the wake chemotherapy, I can say without hesitation that I miss my eyebrows terribly and I impatiently await their return.
