Welcome to the Unibrow Club!

Dear Junebug,
Most people who meet you think you are the spitting image of your Father.  Sure... but there are a few things that make you unmistakenly your Mother's daughter.  For one - you don't have eyebrows... you have AN eyebrow.  I'm sorry to be the one to welcome you to the Unibrow Club!
There is some good news though.  Throughout history unibrowed people have risen to great heights... even the Presidency.  Of course men really have no problem sporting a unibrow.  Women haven't had it as easy.  Case in point - when your Mommy was in grade school they used to call her "Bert" like from Sesame Street.  But don't worry.  I have hope for your generation.  Recently, Madonna's daughter Lourdes (or Lola as they call her) has been rocking her unibrow in all its glory and it's marvelous.  At 12 years old she is already being hailed a major trendsetter and by the time you are 10 years old she'll hopefully be some kind of superstar either ruling the pop charts or on her way to curing cancer... I mean, she IS Madonna's spawn.  I'll make you a deal - we'll use tweezers (sparingly) at 12 and I'll take you for your first wax at 17 but if you want to go au natural we're in... after all, Mommy's most favorite style icon of a woman in life is Mexican painter Frida Kahlo who wore her unibrow with pride and it was beautiful.
