It's the Little Things in Life

POST #    561

This morning, I was shaving (yes, I actually shave) and was reminded about an episode of The Simpsons that I saw just last night. In the episode "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish," Homer has some bad blowfish and thinks he is going to die in 22 hours. Because of his impending death, he makes a list of things to do, one of which is to, "Have man-to-man with Bart.'' After a short talk, Homer teaches Bart how to shave. Homer shaving is up there on my "favorite things to see while watching The Simpsons list" because his face is bare for about five seconds and then the hair comes right back (I also love when Homer is shown straight on).

Anyway, I was shaving this morning, and totally thought about that moment in the episode. I then proceeded to cut myself once, unlike Homer, who cut himself many times. I also tried to remember who taught me how to shave. I think I learned from my "godfather" when I was in junior high. I remember it left me with a tingly sensation afterwards. After that, I used an electric razor until sophomore year of college. Now I'm back to the regular razor and pretty much shaving every day. What a pain. I even own a straight razor, but I cut myself twice the only time I tried to use it.

Funny that you bring up shaving. Today I actually proceeded to nick my ear. It is the weirdest nick I have ever gotten I nicked that little piece that sticks out on the front part of the ear.I guess not only does drinking impair your ability to operate large machinary I guess it also impairs the ability to wield small razored objects. I am waiting for the day I am in a sleepy haze and i hack off a chunk of lip or something.

once, i actually cut my ear with a pair of scissors. why scissors? i was trimming my hair. that sucked. i would not stop bleeding. i even tried using one of those syptic pencils that can stop small cuts. didn't work. but those things are great for cuts from shaving.
