Bodily oddities. What are yours? I have two eyebrow hairs that are at least half an inch long. They look like antennae.

Seriously, I have one in each eyebrow. I have to clip them or rip them out entirely, or they grow so long they sort of bow outwards and you can see them when you look at me sideways.

And then there's the single, translucent eyebrow hair that grows beside my left eyebrow. It's not white, it's whitish-clear. And it looks like nylon thread. Extremely bizarre.

Also, I have a single dark brown freckle on the tip of my left big toe. Highly visible in sandals (if anyone wants to bother looking at my toes, that is.) I've often been tempted to tattoo another one beside it, and a smiley mouth beneath.

Anyone else want to share bodily oddities?

I have a mole below my knee that looks like a chocolate button. Ds likes to pretend to eat it "num num num, mmmm chocolate" hmm

I have an odd dent on the top of both hands, near the wrist. I am apparently either missing a bone in each or the bones that I have are unusually spaced.

My feet are hideous. I am a short delicate and petite person in general, but have stumpy misshapen toes. I always have them covered up and dread summer.

my second toes are a lot longer than my big toes

DP has random hairs. he has two eyebrow hairs which grow to frightening lengths, and also one eyelash on his right eye which is white and doesn't stop growing. He is always discomfited when me and DD point and laugh.

I have funny shaped ears - each of them has a notch missing at the top, like it has been snipped with a stanley knife.

I also still have 4 milk teeth, been x-rayed by the dentist and there are no adult teeth above it.

DD has a mole right inside her belly button.

I have a freak rougue hair that grows on my thigh - if left unplucked it'll grow about 5 or 6 inches.

I have a elf ear grin it has an extra bit of skin and points out .....

I have one single chin hair that has nothing to do with age/hormones as it was first noticed when I was eight years old blush I still remember the mum picked it off my chin thinking it was a strand that had fallen off my head. I don't know who was more shocked when we realised it was rooted to my skin! Mum actually gave a little shriek and wiped her hand vigorously on her skirt! It was just a reflex action, I know, but I haven't ever let her forget her supportive bedside manner grin
It still grows to frightening lengths if I let it. DH has no clue as I snip it off the minute it becomes an inch-ish long

Oh, and I have one white hair on my head that sticks out perpendicular to my head hmm. I do have other white hairs, but this one is such an exhibitionist. it stands out proud like an antenna and will not be flattened angry

I have a mole on my arm out which grow two hairs - they can get quite long; if there was a third, I could plait them grin. However, I generally clip them to avoid scaring people.

I have broad palms and thin fingers. Consequently, my little fingers on both hands bend over sideways at an alarming degree in order that they meet with my ring fingers, IYSWIM. A friend once asked me if I'd broken my little fingers as they are so misshapen.

Borderlass, that's called Morton's Syndrome - I have it too, my second toes are slightly longer than my first. Apparently lots of people have it [we're all freaks together emoticon].

I have witchy chin hairs.
Used to be only one, but since having ds, they have multiplied.
I'll have a bloody beard by the time no.2 appears. hmm

<quite glad this is all I have to worry about tbh>

Oh, and I have a 'spider' according to ds. Hairy mole on my arm.

badietbuddy Tue 01-Dec-09 15:53:28

I quite possibly have a third nipple shock

Bumblelion Tue 01-Dec-09 15:54:57

On my left hand I have the knuckle at the base of my little finger completely missing and on my right hand I am missing the same knuckle and the one next to it. Because of this it means that the fingers effected appear shorter although they are in fact the right length. I was 10 when it was first noticed by my mum.

I also have a mole on the underside of the toe that is second in from the big one on my left hand foot.

EdgarAleNPie Tue 01-Dec-09 15:59:19

ooh my sister and DD have additional nipplage.

i can put my tongue up my nose.

theminniebauble Tue 01-Dec-09 16:00:01

All of my bodily hair is very fair- I have sparse eyebrows don't have anything on my top lip. However, on either side of my mouth I have a couple of white, shortish hairs that stick out.

It's like the start of the sort of beard that a west highland terrier might have. I keep on checking to see if there are any more growing- there aren't and these little devils aren't getting any longer. Hardly noticable but very odd nonetheless.

EdgarAleNPie.... up your nose???

Like your name, by the way.

I have a freakishly large womb according to Dr that examined me once.

I was so proud.

And the long toe thingy.

The best oddity would be to have webbed feet. I went out with a bloke who had this and it was completely wasted on him, he couldn't even swim.

My big toes are not only about 4 inches longer than my second toes, there is also space for about another 3 toes between them. (swear to God, if you chopped my big toes off I'd be a size 2 instead of a 7) They are also both double jointed. When my classes get boring I take my socks off and show my students my party trick.
Beats a ping pong ball any day.

PS My Aunty Denise had webbed feet, and fingers. Her husband used to annoy the bejaysus out of her by parading her at parties and quacking at her.

Jacksmama Tue 01-Dec-09 17:42:01

Cool, we're all weird grin

mamasmissionimpossible Tue 01-Dec-09 17:53:23

I have double jointed thumbs. I used to freak my friends out at school with them, and make them run screaming grin

rumpleteaser Tue 01-Dec-09 19:08:51

oooh I also have a milk tooth, I think when I was younger and dentist removed a tooth they all moved up one notch so baby tooth is still here and I'm 24.

I still have all four wisdom teeth, perfectly aligned with all my other adult teeth. The first one broke through when I was barely 15.
