I recently heard that a flawed syllogism is that rabbits have whiskers and rabbits are mammals therefore all mammals have whiskers.
Flawed? Perhaps not as much as I would have wanted to think just a few years back!
Of course, over time, you decide that, what the heck, I can go longer than a day. And then, you decide, what the heck--I wear long pants all winter...
Then, a cool thing happens.
That hair on the legs begins to thin. There is not nearly as much and it doesn't grow nearly as fast.
Yeah!!!!! You breath a sigh of relief.
As you breath a sigh of relief you catch a glimpse of yourself in the bathroom mirror and what is that????
What is waving in that little breath?????
You move in closer and Oh DEAR!!!! That leg hair that you were so happy to have gone is now...
NO! IT CANNOT BE!!!!
On your face!!!!
Now, there's one that the movies and Disney never prepare you for!
You head down to Wally World, all the time hoping that no camera carrying peeps are shooting you for the next People Of Wally World episode, slink into the depilatory aisle and--oh thank goodness!!!!
Might as well hit it with a scalding hot poker! Oh my gosh!!!! You are in the fetal position thinking, "how in the world am I going to deal with the other side? Will people notice if one side is furry and the other is RED????"
With a will of iron, you zip off the other side thinking that you have won! The package said you would! It would thin and go away!
It didn't warn about the red rash that would develope and the things that look like pimples that last until the next time you have hit the torture chamber again!!!!
Ah hah! We will go to the beauty salon and get it yanked out by the pros. They must have the answer, right? But, after having it yanked out there and a nice, supposedly soothing cream smeared all over and the divestiture of a goodly sum from your wallet, you find that they didn't have the answer either when those pimply things come back again!
You wait with bated breath (I looked it up and that IS the correct bated there! It is NOT baited--k? I have no idea what you would catch with baited breath?) anyway, you wait with bated breath and no zit like things pop up.
So, short of very expensive, and painful looking electrolysis treatments, this is the current fad in my house...
Mother nature can have a very cruel sense of humor!
