The Economics of an Eyebrow Wax

I pay a woman to rip the hair from my eyebrows every six weeks. My husband, the ever pragmatic engineer,  proclaims that of all the “beauty” regimens I participate in, this is the biggest waste of money since no one notices my eyebrows.  So, after hearing his complaints over and over,  I finally asked him: “What can you live with more?  Doling out money so no one notices my eyebrows or not doling out the money and having everyone notice my unibrow? “   He got a strange look on his face and walked away. Funny, but now he thinks that $15 for the eyebrow wax is the biggest bargain in the world.  Yes, a little exaggeration goes a long way when dealing with men.
