I felt like a lumberjack

One of the better things about being single is the fact that you can go weeks without shaving your legs. What many men may not know is that, generally speaking, women don’t go to great lengths to rid themselves of every square inch of body hair just for the hell of it. It’s not fun. I’ve fallen down in the shower practically wrapping my leg around my neck trying to get those stragglers on the back of my thighs. I’ve been enjoying my stubble but I decided to shave my legs tonight to give me one more reason to avoid getting back to my homework. I felt like a lumberjack razing down a forest, but at least I don’t look like this anymore:

you're going to hate me when you find out that i don't really have to shave.

ever.

i have 12 armpit hairs in each pit and have never had to shave my bikini line. the legs and pits get shaved only if i'm going somewhere fancy, so, like, twice a year.

what boggles the mind is that i'm half italian and half french canadian. by rights i should be the hairiest bitch in toronto.

i don't hate you poopee, but i'm jealous as hell. les--i shaved my legs last night too. i like to have smooth legs for long car rides.

Poopee: I'm jealous too! Apparently I'm deceivingly hairy. Hedy once told me, "Wow! You are hairy! I never would have guessed by looking at your eyebrows!" What a good friend :)

i should point out that i'm one hairy lady, so if i did say that, i wasn't criticizing. i'm half f-ing polish!

Hedy, you did say that but you were just making an observation. We should have a hairy leg contest one of these days. That wouldn't be weird at all...
