Smooth as a baby’s bottom
The other day Josephine asked me why “some girls shave legs.”
There is no good answer for that question at least, no good answer for a five year old. What do I say? They like how it looks. They like how it feels. Some boys shave legs too. Cultural norms are powerful. They race bikes or swim competitively.
I don’t know if she will shave her legs. Time will tell. As for me, I’m looking forward to it. I’ll start again next month or in March, once I start getting outside regularly. If it wasn’t such a hassle, I’d shave every week. It feels that good afterward.
