Monday’s Muse: So I’m High-Maintenance.

MP900404922“I hope American men appreciate the fact that we women shave upwards of 60% of our bodies in order to be socially acceptable.”

I posted the above on Facebook recently, and was told by several people that I am (and I quote) “an overachiever”.

I would gladly concede, except, no one wants to see what would happen if I stopped any part of my daily grooming routine.

Some people don’t have to try to be socially acceptable. They were born that way.

For instance, as I was curling my hair (an hour long procedure) in front of the mirror recently, my husband said, “Oh. When I want my hair to look like that, I just stick it under the faucet.”

Okay, Mr. Elijah Wood–not everyone was born with naturally thick, curly hair.

Upkeep as a plain brunette woman can be exhausting. There are manicures, tweezers, pedicures, volumizing, taming, plucking, coloring, and of course… red heels.

So yes, friends, while I would love to forgo shaving every day, I’d also like to do other things… like become a medical doctor. Overnight.

Some things are just impossible. That’s why God invented the razor.

  1. We are all high maintenance in one way or another. Everyone of us has our issues or or “red shoes”…. they might look like a certain type of jeans or a certain car. We are all a paradox…. simple/ the same/ but complex / and unique. Thank God for all of us.
