    Personal grooming hair removal. Not just the pain, also the awful smell and the spouse’s snarky comment, “Got a little close to the fire did we?”

    On a related note. After extended prompting, (not nagging) I tried one of the those electric nose and ear hair removal tools. The ear part was uneventful, the nose part was more interesting. Perhaps my body has an oversensitive tickle response but when I tried the tool in my nostrils I reacted much in the same way as I would have if I foolishly tested a small cattle prod by sticking it in my nose and turning it on. Oh yes, tears and everything. When I told my wife the story she kept a straight face for a length of time that was so short that no instrument could have measured it and then cracked up. Sigh.

    Hmm…we have the same vanilla ice cream rule in our house as well. Probably for the same reason…lol.

    @John: OK, now that mental image…ROTFL. Must be a wife thing. 🙂


  3. Speaking of which… Sigh… Need icecream…
