First off - Three things. These above all you must understand if all else is to make sense.
1. When I was 15 I was the passenger in a car accident and went through a windshield
2. I am prone to growing crazy old man eyebrows
3. I regularly misquote the opening to A Christmas Carol, as witnessed above.
This afternoon I was giving myself a haircut*, part of which is trimming my eyebrows**
*Because I don't have that much hair anyway, and I'm poor.
**Because they go immediately from trimmed to Beorn*** in about three days
*** That one's for the Hobbit enthusiasts among you.
As I trimmed the my right eyebrow* I happened to notice the five or six diagonal scars I have running through that eyebrow up onto my forehead**
*That would be stage right. To the rest of you it would appear to be the left on
**A souvenir of item #1 above.
I mentioned to someone later, as I was thinking about it, that I'm always vaguely disappointed that no one ever comments on my scars, as I personally love them. I think they look super badass and give me a 'I might possibly be a super-villain of some kind' sort of air. He replied that most people probably just think it would be rude to mention your disfigurement.
This took me aback a little bit, because I've honestly never thought of them as a disfigurement. (See above RE: Badass Super-villainy) But thinking about it now I guess I can see his point.
Still, I can't help but think it would be cool to have somebody say, 'Hey - Those scars look totally badass. Are you a recurring Batman villain by any chance?'
OK, as dreams go it ain't climbing Everest, but it's mine.
