“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.
