The eyelashes have it

One of the most frequent comments strangers make about Little Bro is how long his eyelashes are.

Big Bro has done better than average in the lash department, but Little Bro has hit the Maybelline jackpot. He hasn't always been blepharically* hirsute- during my mum's first meeting with her youngest grandson she observed "his eyelashes aren't as long as Big
Bro's were", and when i looked it was true- just a little stubble on each lid. But rather than start a fund for a future eyelash augmentation surgery (it exists- really!) we watched his lashes grow
longer and longer and l-o-n-g-e-r. I suspect as he grows they will come back towards the usual proportions to his face, but in the meantime I will sit back and enjoy watching Mr Luscious Lashes flutter his stuff.

Girls would give anything for those lashes! My boss (who is otherwise sane and wonderful but is extremely vain and superficial) paints glaucoma medication onto her lash line in an effort to 'grow' them. Bizarre!! x

Yikes- I wonder what the rationale for that is? Eyelashes are odd with their limited growth, though someone told me that scalp hair follicles are the same, but most people reach for the scissors prior to reaching the length limit...
