I had never heard of No Shave November. Where have I been? Under a rock, apparently. I thought surely she must be making this up! There can't really be such a thing, can there? Well, I did a little research and sure enough, I found there is a No Shave November . I can't believe I missed this entirely. As I understand it, there's a resulting fad called NO SEX November, which was started by the mates of the males who participate in No Shave November, in protest.
There's a cause for my consternation that this whole movement escaped my attention: In an attempt at being "Politically Correct," this celebration of hairiness has been declared gender-free. Yes, ladies. This means that for the entire month of November, many of us have been needlessly trimming the tresses from our underarms, legs, and our hoo-hahs. Who knew?
Instead of laboring with those razors to erase the fuzz, we could have been letting it all "hang out," so to speak. This could be me! (Well, with a few more pounds, black hair, cellulite, and glasses!) But I can't win. Just as I was about to trash my trimmer Thursday at twilight, I heard yesterday was Fur-Free Friday! Now I don't know which way to go!
