21 April 2010 - 21:45Does Anyone Remember When…
..I shaved one leg?
Yeah, I remember, and so does Mandy much to her chagrin.
I’m still not certain what the parameters of this experiment are, so I’m going to let it develop on its own.
Here are my findings thus far:
80% of the people that know me and read the blog think it’s business as usual
19% of the remainder question my motives
1% are horrified
So this is what I have found so far.
Shaving my leg makes it feel sexy (to me) and smooth, much like the front fender of a 1976 Corvette. And just like the fender of said ‘Vette, the leg means business.
The hairy leg is just hairy, and doesn’t feel sexy at all.
In terms of mountain biking, both legs get equally dirty. I don’t feel as if one leg gets dirtier than the other. But I do spend more time washing the muck out of the hairy leg than t’other. Then there is the aftershave.
Look, I don’t want “chicken skin”, so I make sure to take the necessary precautionary measures to make sure my shaven leg is as smooth as can be. I use Nivea(esque) creme to make sure I am touchably awesome. Hairy leg though, has responded by making my natural leg hairs as soft as a unicorn’s… well, you can imagine that it’s pretty soft…
