I was standing in front of the mirror shaving when Char said, “You look like you’re in pain.”
“I am,” I replied noticing a few nicks and cuts on my chin, “This razor is dull but I’m not going to pay $19 for eight razor blades. I’ll wait until they go on sale.”
Then Char said, “Have you thought about getting an electric razor?”
Wiping the blood from chin it occurred to me, she might be right. I went shopping for an electric razor. Those little suckers range in price from $14.98 to $224. With my vast knowledge of electric razors, it was easy to pick one. It had to be a brand name (the one with mainly Japanese writing scared me) and I wanted it to cost about the same as two packages of razor blades ($38).
There it was sitting proudly on the shelf a Norelco razor on sale for $37. What a beauty! It has ultra thin shaving heads, is waterproof, has a flip top for easy rinsing, and is rechargeable. I bought it, no more of those expensive blades for me.
The following morning Char asked how the new shaver was working. I told her the truth, “Shaving is shaving.”
