So, ever since I was a young little guy, I used an electric shaver. I think my dad was worried that I would accidentally slit my throat if I used a manual razor. He was probably right. I have since gone thru 3 Norelco shavers.
On my last trip to Pakistan, I forgot and left my electric shaver at home. Now, I don't grow hair as fast as a wildabeast, but after a few days, it can get a bit scruffy. So, I got the courage and tried out a manual 'hotel' quality razor and went to work on my face. I did it. No tragedies involved. It was liberating. I was ready to shout to the world that "I CAN DO IT." Alas, I did not do that as this was not too dramatic of an accomplishment, but nonetheless, it was impressive.
I have turned over a new leaf...I am now a man's man and I use a manual shaver. I went to Costco and purchased the Gillette Fusion razor because it looks just so awesome. I bought the shaving cream and I am in business. Yes, there will be occassional misfires, but that is what toilet paper is for--to stop the little nicks that can bleed until the cows come home (that last phrase was a shout out to all of you cow lovers).
Now ladies, you are welcome to come up to me anytime and feel my smooth manually-shaved face. Its OK, Brodi has approved of it. Now, I just got to get the courage to shave my chest. Totally kidding, I will not shave my chest...I am going to let those 7 little chest hairs stay right where they are.
