Fact Time: Mustaches

Today you will learn 2 things about me.

Fact:  Every time I share a story from when I was young, my mom says, "You're just making that up because you had a boring childhood."  This makes me crazy. 

Fact:  When I was a small girl (kindergarten age) I had this reoccurring nightmare that girls with mustaches were chasing me around the playground and trying to kiss me.  This truly terrified my 5 and 6 year old self.  When mustaches starting becoming popular some years back, this dream would constantly pop back into my head.  I had mixed emotions.

Today I can wholeheartedly say that I am able to look in the mirror, put on a mustache, and not recoil.  Talk about facing your fears! ;))

P.S.  I'm not making this up, MOM!!!  ;)

  3. This was in the onion last week and it totally reminds me of your dreams--but being kissed by this lady wouldn't be so bad now would it?

  4. I LOVE mustaches, though for the longest time when I was little my dad had a beard. Then he shaved it into just a mustache one time, and I cried. I think I was like 5 and I had literally NEVER seen him without a beard, so he was like a stranger to me.

    But today I love them, and is one of the first reasons I looked into Gogol Bordello, because of their frontman, Eugene Hutz and his magnificent mustache.

    My mom always makes me question my childhood memories, but in my case, I usually have added to them a wee bit over the years.

  14. My mom and brother are constantly telling me I am making things up and most of the time they just tell me I'm lying. Because, these things are so interesting I must lie about them. You too, right?

  18. sometimes there are no words. sometimes you just face you fears and you capture them, locking them away. -i love this quote!!!

    I remember when I was little that I was afraid of spiders, who isn't? And I was cleaning my room when I see a small spider on the floor coming right towards me. I was in the corner and there was no where to go. I screamed for my dad and he came to my rescue and killed the spider. Even to this day they still give me the creeps but at least I can kill them by myself and not have anyone do it for me!

  19. Awe yes the mustache. I always was against them myself. Now I am married to the Brawny man (flannel shirt and all)....he cured my fears. It tickles my nose though.

    Worth it.

  20. hehehehe you're funny. that would be a scary dream. sometimes i dream that i have stubble (like man face stubble) and that i have to shave before i leave the house and i get annoyed that it's ok for boys to have stubble but not girls.
    then when i wake up i check to make sure i'm not growing a beard. :)

  22. haha :) When I was little I had a reoccurring (I think i dreamed it several times but I'm not completely sure) dream too - I was dreaming I come to school and then find out I didn't wear my skirt! I remember it clearly - in my dream, all the girls in my class were standing in a row in the school hallway and the pricipal was walking in front of us, and then I found out I'd forgotten to wear my skirt!! scary!!!
    The reason I was dreaming it is that in the mornings, when I was getting ready to school, lots of times when my mom saw me without my skirt she would say, kidding: "today you are going to school without a skirt?" and that made me dream those dreams. :) :) :)

  24. The owls are so cute! You make wonderful things, Keep up the good work!
    You're story is so funny! My dad had a mustache for a looong time, when he shaved it off I didn't recognize him anymore. So for me it was the opposite!!

    Have a great weekend!
