Shower Cap Confessions

I have a confession. I've gone over to the other side. That's right, I no longer use a woman's razor. Why would I when I get a much smoother shave with my hubby's Gilette? I decided it was time to give up and I went and bought my very own Gillette Fusion Power with its smoothe comfort of a five-blade shave. Five. Blades.

For some women this wouldn't be an issue. They're happy with their ten pack of no-name disposable razors. Then there's the rest of us, where shaving is more like hacking a trail through raw jungle and scratchy underbrush. Sometimes you don't get it all on the first swipe. If given the choice between a jacknife or a machete, which would you choose?

Now, this razor not only has five blades, but it vibrates. When I told my girlfriend the news she said, "It vibrates!? What, exactly, are you doing in the shower??" No, nothing like that, I assure you. Supposedly the little electrical impulses sent by a single AA battery are enough to cause the hairs on your legs to stand at attention, resulting in a closer, smoother shave. All I know is I haven't cut myself once.

Oh, and if you turn the razor over, on the top is this tiny blade for shaving the hairs beneathe your nose. I haven't had to use that blade.......yet.

I love your visuals in this post. Funny stuff, Shauna. Funny stuff.

Jen said...

Mentioning anything that vibrates while you are showering is going to raise eyebrows Shauna! LOL

I never knew such a contraption existed. Gotta get out more!

I could seriously use that 'stache trimmer... never thought I needed until my DD told me I had one the other day. Now, of course, it looks like Magnum P.I.'s -- LOL

You're having WAY too much fun in your shower, girl.

That was hilarious, Shauna!

First it's Jenster with her nipple stories. Now it's Shauna with her vibrating razor. Maybe you two should get together and write an edgy romance novel?!?!

Shauna said...

Jenster, I'll say her comment kinda shocked me, too! What some people think of...LOL!

Jen, you can also get the vibrating one in a women's Venus shaver. But it only has three blades. *shrug*

Marianne, ROTFLOL! Magnum P.I.'s??! LOL! And I do my best thinking in the shower...which is where this post originated...obviously! :-)

Becky, thanks.

Barb, you want in?? I think it was you who suggested a tattoo of a nipple on Jenster's ankle. We need some of your daring-do! LOL!

Jenster said...

I doubt anyone would buy our book, but we'd sure have fun writing it!!! LOL

And I just want to say for the record, my "nipple" stories were not gratuitous.

There. Now I feel better. :o)

Barb said...

I never meant they were gratuitous!!! But they were bold! No, I don't want in--thanx anyway. I'm bold, but not as bold as y'all! 0:o)
