Short and curlies

I have an enquiring mind.

I like to know how things work and why they work.  Why does this do this, and that do that?

Why to people only phone me when I’m having a dump?  How do they know?

Why does it only rain when I forget to bring my coat?  Does my forgetfulness really affect the weather?

I have a problem that has been nagging at me for the last couple of weeks [and it’s not Herself, this time].

Why doesn’t pubic hair grow like the rest of the bodily hairs?

This has caused quite a few sleepless nights and the stress is starting to take it’s toll.

Why is the hair on the top of my head very fine and straight, whilst all others are wiry and curly?  But the most confusing of all – how come the pubic hairs stop dead at a couple of inches [I don’t know – I haven’t measured and I don’t intend to]?  How come I have to have the occasional haircut and even trim the beard every year or so while the old pubes remain a constant length?

What if I had my pubes transplanted to my chin?  Would that save on the annual trim?

I suppose it could be worse though.

If the pubes grew like the beard I would constantly be tripping myself up.

    • The question is – would anyone notice the difference?

      • All my emails come from the People's Republic via Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan

        Any allegation of dodginess and requests for bank accounts is vehemently denied – upon mature recollection

  1. As another bearded genius, Billy Connolly, once said of it;

    "Imagine if it kept growing. It'd come out the bottom of your trousers if you weren't careful! Or you could put hairstyles on it; punks could spike it and hippies could let it grow really long and make pleats and ponytails with it - then you could call it Willy Nelson!"

  2. Ah, we learned about this in one of the forensic courses I took.  The professor turned an entertaining, yet disgusting at times subject, into a two week grueling ordeal on hair follicle structure.  Then, we went on to discuss animal hair!  Probably the most entertaining subject was learning how and when we get our fingerprints.  It's a great conversation starter.  I'm not so sure about pubic hair being a good conversation starter!  :)

      • The Birds and the Bee's is a treacherous subject in the Bible belt.  The science world says that we get our fingerprints in the womb between 12 to 18 weeks.  This time period varies according to who you talk to or what book you read, but it's fairly close.  During this time period, our fingertips are like pliable little balloons.  When a fetus touches the inside of the womb, ridges build up on the fingertips that eventually leads to a one off pattern.   That's how we get our footprints, too.  :)

    • "I'm not so sure about pubic hair being a good conversation starter!"

      That entirely depends on who you're conversing with and whose pubic hair it is. The location of the conversation also may play a part as well.
