A short note on false lashes

Being in my mid 30s, I kinda feel it is too late to learn how to use a menstrual cup. I’ve mentioned this before. Probably more than once. Most recently in an exchange with hitherdither.

Also me: ..sooooo…false eyelashes. About time I learned how to use them?

My priorities are not right. They are wrong. I know this. I’m just choosing to not act on it.

I might have tried false lashes once before. In the 90s. I want to say false lashes weren’t very good then. But probably, more than anything, I didn’t have a clue how to get them on, and Internet wasn’t particularly helpful back then.

Unless you were looking for Sex Pistols pics. I do recall there being quite a few. Sid Vicious/Nancy Spungen obsession…


Fortunately. My sensitive eyes don’t particularly seem to agree with these:


It might be the practicing to get them on right that my eye is reacting on, I’ll give them another few tries, but it’s not looking great.

The point of this post? I like stories about failure and irrationality. I just do. So that’s what I write.

I am willing to try false lashes, but not a menstrual cup. That’s just great.

In my defense, my period is officially late.

…or it would be. If it was in the habit of being regular. I guess it got bored of being regular. Suits me well.

  1. I’ve never been able to put on falsies either…. I just don’t know how to do anything that has to do with it.. They don’t want to stay in place, the glue looks weird, they suddenly fall off.. makes my eyes itch and then water and then they fall off. Disastrous.

    1. Good to know it’s not just me 🙂

      Worst part really is the itching. Which, to be fair, was kinda expected, which, in turn, just makes me extra daft. But hey ho.

      The second pair come already glued though, sorta interested to see if they’re at all different. Even if I suspect they’re not.
