New One on Me: The Five Finger Forehead

By | March 11 2011 | 53 Comments


A summary of a conversation which occurred at my place of work recently:

COLLEAGUE ONE: “Oh I like your ring! Where did you get that?”

ME: “Ah thanks! It’s Scott Wilson for ASOS. There was actually a matching bracelet but I was kinda put off it because I saw it on Amanda Holden, and y’know ….”

ENTIRE OFFICE IN SYMPATHETIC TANDEM: “ah God poor Amanda Holden. Desperate what happened to her.”

Amanda was given a minute of respectful silence and then:

COLLEAGUE TWO: “she does wear awful clothes though.”

COLLEAGUE THREE: “AND she has a five finger forehead!”

Readers, not really being au fait with America’s Next Top Model or any Tyraisms barring SMIZE, this was a new one on me. A five finger forehead!? What could it mean? Colleague three helpfully demonstrated by placing her hand across her non-five-finger-forehead. Colleague one was quick to point out that equally bad would be a two finger forehead. Entire office was in stitches at this point.

So, the burning question for today is, how many fingers is YOUR forehead – and no cheating! Spill in the comments.

    Reminds me of when years ago my friend found a product on the Rimmel stand which was designed to smooth out your lip wrinkles before you put on lipstick (not your average lip balm mind) and she turned around and said to me “do you think they’ll ever run out of things to try to make us worry about?”
