The Defoliation Blues
Saturday, May 30, 2015
Men, avert your eyes. I can't guarantee you'll survive the trauma. It's about to get real.
For years, my armpits have been bald as a baby's butt. I figured it was just a natural part of aging, and besides, it was more of a relocation than a loss, really, since most of the missing hairs started showing up on my chin. Elsewhere, my former goatee turned into a standalone Fu Manchu. But I'm rambling.
It wasn't aging. I was shaving my legs today and happened to glance at my pits in the mirror. Holy crap! It was a jungle in there! So, for the first time in years, I shaved them.
It's not age. It's increased nutrition and decreased chafing. Now I know. And I swear, if I start menstruating again, I'm eating a side of beef!
