That was a close shave.

Just a close shave.
Darn! My electric shaver is broke. The head and foil has come apart. I thought I had another to replace it with but discovered I do not. This got me to thinking. What if I grew a beard? I tried it once or twice when in college. The miscellaneous scruff I grew back in college came out blondish and not dark brown. Dark brown like I HAD atop my head in a previous life. With my horribly white skin the blondish beard looked like someone hit me straight on with a cream pie. Then there was the itch. Itch accompanied with pimple blumples. Itchy! And in need of Oxy-10. Just a freaking mess of itch and pimples.
But anyway, my shaver is out of

order. Necessitating me to use a razor blade. I use Harry’.com. Receiving multibladed blades every month or so. It all works fine if I want to take the time to affect a wet shave. Wet shaves are troublesome and take too much time and shave cream. I guess I’m too lazy to do the entire wet-shave process.
But on the other hand, it will be about one week before I get a replacement foil for my shaver. The way shipping is slow today, it could easily be several weeks before arrival.
So, if you see a guy out walking with a scruffy pie-splattered looking beard, it might be me or a chimpanzee. None the less, say hi. However, I might be walking with my chin touching my chest Attempting to hide my wooly unshaven face. Darn! Technology fails me once again. If it it’s not my Wahl shaver then it’s my 20-year-old Windows XP PC. They just don’t make them like they used to. Do they huh?
