     This morning’s news reported that men are shaving less above the neck, and companies like Proctor and Gamble are losing money on razor blades. Like this is news? I haven’t seen a clean-shaven face on a guy under 60 since 2003. Apparently, there are different blades for specific parts of the male anatomy. Oh my. Mr. Wonderful would not appreciate my readers knowing his “Manscaping” habits, but suffice it to say, he has little on the pate, none on the smile, and that’s all I’m sayin’. 


The male newscaster stated that razors themselves are cheap, but razor blades are exhorbitant. This is true for women as well. I have to give up three lattes for soft-touch legs. The real question, however, is what about us? If corporate America is allowing facial hair on the job for men, why not get on the bandwagon, ladies, and give up that leg-shaving that we all hate. Our blades are outrageous too, so let’s bring out our combs, and rat up the leg locks into a whole new movement. We can initiate the Tresses are Trendy campaign. Women Unite! Just think of the advantages:

  1. More time for online shopping
  1. No need for stockings, pantyhose (who wears these?), tights, thigh highs
  1. Legs warmed by natural fur
  1. No drain-clogging
  1. Only accessories needed:  rat comb and scissors
  1. Blankets unnecessary in winter
  1. Band-aids be gone
