Who wears short shorts??

I have swallowed my injured pride enough to write about my experience with the new Nair Shower Power product. I feel it is my duty to share my episode with every woman who is contemplating this product.

I saw the commercial and I think that drool literally spilled from the corner of my mouth.. Most women my age are like me.. Tired of shaving. Most of us started around age 11-13 because it was the cool thing to do. Nothing said "grown up" like walking into school around that age with newly shaven legs. It is a passage into woman-hood. By the time you are in your 30's and have a couple of kids... you are lucky to even get a shower each and every day.. Let alone shave your legs on a regular basis. We are sick of it and start to envy men on the fact that if they don't want to shave... they don't have to. However... if we walk around looking like Sasquatch.... We are eeewie.

So I went to my local Wal-Mart and saw that Nair has a Shower Power for sensitive skin.. JACKPOT!!! I read the label and hahaha!!! It is safe for bikini lines!! (Cue the Hallelujah Chorus!!!) I threw my gift from God into the cart and proudly paraded around while I finished my shopping.

Later on that evening, I decided I was going to try out my new found shaving wonder cure.... Tim watched me half laughing, but managed to talk to me through the smirks and muffled laughs. "Are you gonna do your bikini line??" I thought about it... read the tube again and thought.... "Eh.. why not.. Let's go all out!!" Mistake numero uno.. I thought about it. I finished foaming up my legs and ..... hmmm... this kinda burns a bit.....

I started to step in the shower and gasped..I think I saw my life flash before my eyes "Dear God... just kill me... take me right now... The pain!!!" Of course.. Tim saw the look on my face and laughed while asking if I was alright.... I just looked at him and replied with.. "BRING ON THE PAIN!!!" I want to explain ... it was not my legs that were on fire..

The words that I had read not even 3 minutes prior crossed my mind...


Pffffft... Whose??? Did they give that person an epidural??? Were they alive?? Were they given a local anesthetic first??

While I quickly washed up I realized something.. I had to rub the crap off.... I wanted to die right then and there. Tim was making a failed attempt to hide and muffle his chuckle still. I reached for the exfoliating sponge that it came with and gently wiped in a circular motion...........

OH THE HUMANITY!! In my mind I was talking like Ricky Bobby in Talledega Nights.. "Dear Lord Baby Jesus....."

This is something that should be used in terrorist interrogations!!! I finally finished up everything.. ran the hot water out in the process... You never realize just how grateful you are for not having anymore hot water until you receive a chemical burn in your most sensitive areas.

It did stay on while in the shower like the commercials say it will, but I walked like a bow legged cowboy for two days.

I will be sticking to the razor from now on.
