Okay, so I have to confess to this minor obsession I seem to have developed.
In doing so, I'm also outing myself about one of my less flattering physical features.
I'm a hairy girl.
I don't want to be hairy. I have issues with it. There, I said it.
Someone, anyone, please tell me that I'm not the only person who became borderline obsessed with hair removal!
I bought some depilatory cream a few years ago after getting tired of the constant need to shave my legs. It didn't work any better or last any longer on my legs.
I hate...HATE...doing the yard work. You know, the clean up around the edges that becomes necessary this time of year.
Mommy can't just go to the pool spontaneously. There is planning required.
Ugh. I wish I wasn't hairy.
Anyway, in my pre-trip preparations, I decided to get as much of the undesired hair off as I could. I bought creams and lotions and new razor blades. Then I got creative.
I actually removed all the hair off my arms.
I can't believe I am admitting this.
I have this friend who has been trying to convince me to try waxing for a while now. She swears by it. Preaches about the virtues of it. How it only hurts the first time.
But then, secretly I think she's one of those sick people who likes pain. Mwhahaha.
I made the mistake of telling her that I Naired (yes, that is a word dammit) my arms, so now she is on a mission.
I need some feedback from those of you out there, my fellow hairy girls.....be honest with me.
How bad is a Brazilian???
