On Grooming

(PG-13 Warning--and waaaaaaay too much information.)

I suppose some would say that I am a lucky man to never have to worry about going bald. But the truth is, I'm just down right hairy. And unfortunately I don't just mean on my head.

My wife claims to like the grizzly type over the pubescent boy look, but still, it can get a little ridiculous. I generally try and keep things trimmed close, you know just in case. Like just in case my wife just has to have me on the dining room table, or maybe on the washer coming in from the garage while the groceries grow ripe in the back of the car. You know, like I saw in the "Welcome to the Married Life" orientation video I had to watch as a part of my premarital counseling... Ha!

Grooming habits in general are kind of weird. I mean how much pain are we willing to tolerate? I've had my eyebrows waxed, and I have to hand it to you ladies, that is pretty painful. And I can't even imagine what that must feel like on your nether regions. But, you can't truly speak of how badly it hurts to be beautiful until...'ve caught the skin of your scrotum in a pair of electric clippers.

And that's all I have to say about that.


  1. this is waaaayyyy too much information :)

  2. Hehe, I do what I can. :) Tis all in good fun.

  3. OUCH

    Sharp-edged electronics down there = bad idea! I don't care about "TMI," I'm in nursing school, but I can't believe you wrote this down, I would want to forget about such a painful experience forever!! Haha. Good luck with that. Luckily it's a highly vascular area (right? haha I'm rusty, nursing school goes by too fast to have this stuff deep conditioned into my brain) so it can heal rather quickly (is that accurate?).

  4. Haha, I'll say it's highly vascularized and yeah, it healed pretty quick.

    But yeah. OUCH.

  5. OMG!! Im reading at work, and I laughed so hard I snorted! Have to hand it to ya....thats a good one!

  6. Just read my post called "Brain Purge, a TMI story" in my sidebar, and you will have a very very clear picture of where I've been in my grooming endeavors.
