The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Blade ruiner

One of the preparations for tomorrow's knee surgery is to defuzz the surrounding area, and so, razor in hand and center of gravity askew, I went to work.

Fifteen minutes and not so much blood later, I figure I'm done, and I figure I don't want to do this ever again unless I'm entered in some sort of contest. (Which, now that I think about it, was the reason I did it the last time.)

Women, I presume, have this down to a science, maybe even an art form.

(And this will be the last entry until I'm off the table and feigning being functional again.)

My son-in-law had the same operation on both knees and he plays table tennis as good as ever, though I still beat him at it.

So at least you should be able to play table tennis as good as ever afterwards.

Best wishes.

Can I bring over a meal? Something nice and unhealthy?

best thing to do is trim it first with electric clippers, put a hot washcloth on it for a few minutes to soften the skin and saturate the hair with water (trust me on this) and a little bit of clove oil rubbed on the area first for extra lubrication BEFORE putting on a good shaving gel, such as neutrogena for men or nivea for men.

works for me...i do this to my face every day (sans electric clippers) and it comes out baby-butt smooth every time. the shaving oil really, really helps.

anyway, i'll stop rambling now.

Be sure to get the videotape of the surgery. It's great fun when folks subject you to home movies.

I presume by now it is all over. Anxiously awaiting the results. All good karma to you :)
