Why Waxing Isn't Funny!
I hate leg hair. I run three miles six days a week and wear shorts and cannot stand leg hair. So for the last 20 or so years I have been shaving everyday and I am sooooo sick of it. So I paid twenty dollars for a product called Nads and thought I would give it a try. So after a torturous two days of letting my hair grow I got brave enough to try it. I locked myself in the bathroom, got down to my skivvies and perched on the edge of the tub. Feeling very confident after reading the directions twice I got down to business. Start small I said out-loud and spread the smooth sticky wax in an inch by six inch line just like the directions said, following the hair growth. I pressed the little virgin white cloth into the wax and took a deep breath. On three I pulled and screamed, no, shrieked, no, siren wailed from the pit of my stomach until it exploded out of my mouth. I slipped off my perch into the empty and cold tub and wondered if the primal yell I heard was audible to the outside world or if the scream was just in my head. Stunned and in pain I sat again on my perch and decided I would have to give it at least one more try now. Knowing what I knew it could not possibly hurt that bad again. Shaking and sweating I made another strip on my leg only half as long as the previous one.I applied the cloth, took two deep breaths and RIP........ the war cry started at my toes and shot out my mouth. I know I was heard because two cats were at the bathroom door crying to be let in to see if the hand that feeds them had just been amputated. So waxing is not funny. Just a note: it doesn't hurt on the eyebrows or chin.(Don't know why!) I love being a woman!
