Situation: Your wife chases after you , screaming “I can’t take it anymore!”, with a pair of scissors in her hand.
At 23: This means you said something really stupid, and she’s ticked off to the point of violence.
At 43: This means she can no longer stand to look the strange hair growing in strange places on you. Eybrows, ears, nose (eeewwww), back; you’ve become a plush rainforest of little hairs. You’ve become Andy Rooney.
If you’re 23 – run!
If you’re 43, stay still and let the woman groom you. You’ll both be happier in the end.
