Totally off the subject
Why I'm telling you this is beyond me, except that I thought it was hilarious, and I always enjoy a good laugh. Guys, if this is TMI, I apologize. So I'm getting ready for church one morning and while I'm working on my hair, arms raised high, my husband comes near and reaches for my armpit. Fearing that he's planning a tickle attack I try to jerk away (I ABHOR being tickled). Well, that wasn't his intention - this time - instead he had focused in on a wild hair! He tugged on it and made some comment that escapes my memory now. I asked him, "What, is it a wild hair?", "More like a patch of wild hairs!" Say what?! Evidently over a period of who knows how long, I have missed shaving an area under my arms, so I had this Euro-Madonna like thing going on! LOL! I'm thinking, "How in the world did I miss that?" Sure enough, it was balanced - BOTH underarms had hairy patches happening. Now I have to be more intentional while shaving. I mean, I wouldn't want to be in a car accident, wheeled into the ER and then distract the medical workers with my bushy pits, you know? EW - gross! OK, so after this mishap, I started wondering about whose idea was it for women to start shaving in the first place? I tried researching the history of shaving, but I didn't find anything that satisfied my curiosity, so to me it's still a mystery.
