Today I cursed Jesus in S.’s basement.
Let me explain.
S. is my friend and she’s also my stylist. She has (quite a snazzy) salon in her home.
My hair is her work. My brows used to be her doing as well but I had to stop waxing when I started using a particular skin cream.
I found out you can’t wax when using Retinol the hard (lose some skin) way.
So I’ve been tweezing but it’s a pain in the ass.
But today S. showed me her new Braun Silk-epil Soft Perfection hair removal device and encouraged me to test it out on my arm.
I tried it and cursed Jesus. His mother, too. It was extremely painful.
(I think S. may have been a bit surprised by the string of expletives. She’s known me for many years but only a few of my friends have ever witnessed my potty mouth.)
Turns out the thing is especially a bitch on long hairs. I never thought the hairs on my arms were especially long but live and learn.
Great, now I have something new to obsess about.
Oh, if you’re curious, the device worked very well once I tried it on the shorter hairs on the insides of my elbows.
Its the best thing ever! I have been using it for 20 years and I have no more hair on my legs and arms. But it used to hurt like hell!
I’ve heard you cuss once or twice before.
Come on, Sharon has heard you swear a million times. She used to wax your brows and you have a low pain threshold! Lots of people have heard you — admit it.
