If you were around in the 1970's, you probably remember this song:
Gimme a head with hair,
long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there, hair!
Shoulder length, longer (hair!)
Here baby, there mama, Everywhere daddy daddy
Back in the '70s, long hair was the thing--everyone wanted it. The more hair, the better.
So did you see the news story last week about the alleged discovery of a Bigfoot "corpse"? It seemed kind of promising for a short time, with the guys who discovered "it" offering to have it DNA-tested. If the story passed you by and you're curious, you can click HERE.
When I first heard about it, I thought maybe it was just a deceased female human who hadn't bothered to shave her legs for awhile. I could relate.
So last night, in pretty much the middle of the night, after staying up late to watch the Olympics, write my blog post, read a few blog posts, yadda, yadda, yadda, I was sitting in the bathtub thinking about how I really needed to get to bed and sleep when for some inexplicable reason I felt compelled to shave my legs.
Shaving my legs in the middle of the night really isn't a great idea. Safety razors keep me from cutting a major artery, but still . . . . As I thought I was done with my bath and the water was draining out of the tub, I realized I had a virtual mohawk running down the back of my left leg. I soon fixed that, but goodness knows what else I may have missed. Even now I can see quite a few stray long, long hairs here and there. A little touch up is definitely in order. Not tonight though.
And remember how when you were too young to shave your legs but you wanted to do it anyway, your mother told you that shaving would make more hair grow? And if you were anything like me, you probably didn't believe her, because we all know mothers back then didn't know nearly as much as we do now, right? Well, guess what? Mom was right! 'Cause I SWEAR that tonight I had a whole lot of chin hairs that I didn't have last night before I shaved! And you know what else? If it's a choice between chin hair and leg hair? I'm just going to keep wearing pants.
