Girlies Only: Shaving your Legs

So, how do you start any life lesson story?
With a Golden Girls quote.

Blanche: "I prefer to be smooth under my arms and from my ankle to the top of my thigh..."
Rose: "Get outta here."
Blanche: "What?"
Rose: *In disbelief* "You shave above the knee?!"
Blanche: "Well of course."
Rose: "Get outta here!"
Blanche: "Surely Rose, you have heard of woman shaving above the knee..."
Rose: *Looks around in confusion* "...Get outta here!!"
Dorthy: "Rose, you say that one more time and we will!"
Rose: "I've never heard of anything like that before-When men see that you shave your legs above the knee, what does that say to them?"
Blanche: "Hopefully it says touch my leg."

Okay, life lesson over. Here is where the funny story comes in: I have never shaved my legs above the knee. I never really thought I needed to because my mum always said if I did, I would regret it-So I never did.

Well, you can believe my surprise when I realized that my sister shaves above the knee! In fact she shaved her whole damn leg!! I asked her when she did that and she kindly informed me with a look that said 'you idiot,' that she has always shaved her whole leg...

A few days later I was taking a shower and I had time to kill so I thought what the hell and just shaved both of my legs 'from my ankle to the top of my thigh' and lo and behold, a little light shone down on me and I realized, what the hell had I been doing the last 10 years of my life!?!?!

At that moment, I felt like Rose when Blanche told her she shaved above the knee(hence the Golden Girl/Life Lesson quote). I even went out when I was done with all my bathroom activities and used the reference with my mum(and she had quite a hearty laugh at my expense...although I had a hearty laugh at my expense, too)!

I never realized how much that simple feet could boost your moral and make you feel....beautiful? Yeah, I suppose that is a good descriptive word. It's amazing how something so simple can profoundly change a person.

Thanks for sticking around to hear my life lesson! Any thoughts on the matter? I would love to hear what you all have to say :-)

Love and Energies.

Stopping by from eighty mph mom's blog. Great post, shaving above the knew is exhilarating!...LOL. I have a few friends who still don't do it, they are in their 30s, so they probably never will!
