Or just halfway?
It’s come much later this year but I knew I had to bite the bullet and put some shorts on.
I had to shave my legs.I admire my friend, Amy. She shaves her legs every single day. Every single day of the year. I admire her commitment to her great legs – loofah-ing and shaving and moisturizing every single day. She shakes her head at me in disbelief when we talk about it.
I hope you don’t think less of me because of that. But really, I *hate* how it feels in the winter after I shave my legs. It’s an odd sensory thing but the feeling of shaved, moisturized legs in the winter is disturbing to me. Especially if I’m wearing jeans.
This morning I lathered up my puff, scrubbed my skin and started the ritual of gliding the razor up my leg, stopping just above my kneecap.
Ever since I started shaving my legs I have been torn as to whether of not to shave my full leg of just half. Ever since I started shaving I have only shaved half. When I get to the knee – I stop. It was what my mum taught me.
I think if I start going all the way up I’ll have to go all the way forever. It’s an added commitment to a hygiene practice that I already find to be a pain in the ass. I lasered off my underarm hair and bikini line. I’d love to be able get my legs done next.
How far do you go and why?
Reminds me of the Laverne and Shirley episode where Laverne is thanking Shirley for being like a mom to her and says “Before you, I was the only girl with bangs on my knees!”….she didn’t know where to stop either…. Who does?!
this post just popped up out of no where 🙂 i wax. wax on, wax off and i get someone else to do it. i have black, thick, gross hair from the ankle up to where it counts and if i were to shave it i’d plug the sewage treatment plant drains. i hate the feeling of 1 day after when it all starts popping through the skin and it hurts!
at least with waxing it grows in wispy-er but still black as hades. lasering my legs is #1 on my “if i win a lottery” list. and i seethe at those people who can say “oh, i just shave every 4 days…tee hee hee”. after waxing i’m good for a single week then it’s time for creative long pant season, or as the rest of you know it as, summer.
i’m panicking cuz i want my girls to wax when the time comes but since a splinter drives them to tears i’m not hopeful.
