Talking Dictionary 1023. The Eyebrows Have It


1023. "Daddy, tell me a story." Dad said, "Sure, honey. Once upon a time, there was a man who shaved his eyebrows every Friday night before he took his weekly bath." Imogene said, "Weekly? He must have smelled really bad." Dad said, "That's for sure. But he was an environmentalist. By bathing only weekly, he was saving water." Imogene said, "He was saving water, but he was losing friends! And why'd he shave his eyebrows? Does that help the environment, too?" Dad said, "No. He had flybrowitis. That's when your eyebrows contain a chemical that attracts insects. In the daytime, flies, gnats, mosquitoes, and bees swarmed around his face. At nighttime, roaches and ants crawled on his face. Luckily, he was a deep sleeper." Imogene said, "Eww! How disgusting. Daddy, is this a true story? Whoever heard of flybrowitis?!" Dad said, "Do you want a true story, or an interesting one?" 4.2
