The Types of Things I Think About...

I'm not sure if you all are really ready for this trip inside my head, but these truly are the types of things that I think & wonder about sometimes...BEWARE~you've been warned~it's still not too late to stop reading & I PROMISE that none of these thoughts are intended to be derogatory towards any group of people-it's just the type of stuff I think about :)

This morning while I was getting ready for work my mind began to wander as it always does, but this morning my mind wandered into a little bit different territory. I began thinking about the "pioneer" days & shaving. I was thinking about how it seemed like the majority of the men back in those days had facial hair, but that they could go to a barber for a shave if they wanted one. That led me to wondering about the indians & how I don't ever recall having seen a picture of a Native American with facial hair. For that matter, I've also never seen a picture of a Native American with chest hair while walking around or riding a horse. This led to the questions...Were they shaving it all off in order to be hairless or were/are they just genetically predisposed to not having hair on their faces & chests? & Why did the white guys want to be so hairy because it mostly seems to be the opposite nowadays?

These are the kinds of questions that never get asked in history class & maybe never anywhere else except in my head ;) I hope none of you got lost in there & if anyone knows the answers, oh please, feel free to fill me in :)

Those are some interesting questions and thoughts. I, too, have some random thoughts running though my head more often then not.

Lack of hair runs in my family. My aunt doesn't have to shave her legs. My dad has only a small amount of fuzz on his leggs, my grandpas' leggs were smooth as a baby's but. My husband's family on the other hand has a tendency for the unibrow!
