My BIG SECRET!

My biggest beauty secret is that I shave every day! It's the least feminine thing about me, having a hairy chin, and I've taken great pains to keep it a secret All. These. Years. But this year I'm 62 and starting new, and one of my goals is to speak what's hidden. SO. Here I am ~ hairy chin or shaved, it's still ME :)                                                                                                 For years I used to pluck with tweezers, but that took so much TIME. Especially as the number of hairs seemed to keep multiplying. In college, I decided once to rebel and go "au naturel"~ and let it all grow (chin, legs, armpits). That lasted about a week. I just couldn't embrace those two furry patches on my face...so off they came, and I quietly rejoined the smooth is beautiful mainstream.                                                            I wasn't thrilled about tweezing, though, so it was a revelation when I saw a woman in a public bathroom one day doing the unthinkable: SHAVING! In 7 seconds, I now accomplish what once took an hour. The only problem? Doing it without being seen. Now that I've 'fessed up, maybe you'll catch me one of these days. At least I'm out of the closet now!
