Ain't No Cure For The Summertime Shaving
All I want is to wear a cute sundress. Sleeveless, scoop neck, lightweight sundress. Is that too much to ask? Well, due to my "Mediterranian Heritage", apparently it IS too much to ask! Unless I want to spend 2 days shaving my entire upper body (front and back), arms, hands, and Who Knows What Else! Let me start at the beginning . . .

Since shaving is such a pain in the . . . everything . . . I try to avoid it if I can. Most summers it's easy - stick to T shirts (or tank tops with high neck lines) and light weight dusters.
This combination keeps me cool enough in the summer heat here in the Pac NW. But when temps hit over 100F, even this combination can be a bit oppressive. And when I see ladies walking around town in very lightweight, sleeveless, tank top, "Oh So Cute" ensembles -- it makes me feel so jealous.

But unless I want to soak in a tub of Nair for an hour, this is what I must do. And since I'm not out to MOST of my close friends and family, it makes the whole "I used to be a hairy guy but now I'm not for no reason YOU need to know about" a tad inconvenient.
I have long ago submitted to the No Pantyhose In The Summer rule (as much as I adore the feel of nylons, I like my comfort better) but the solution for THIS difficulty is not as simple.

Ah well, this too shall pass. Then I'll have to obsess about whether or not to let Julie go to the office on Halloween this year. (more on THAT in a later post!)
Stay Safe And Pretty, Sweeties!
