something to give u a good laugh about waxing

Monday, May 05, 2008

This doesn't pertain to me personally, but it was sent to me by a friend and I figured it may seem familiar to at least a few of you. ENJOY!!

Okay girls be prepared for this. You can't read this if people are
sleeping. You will wake them up laughing your head off. All hair
removal methods have tricked women with their promises of easy, painless
removal - The Epilady, scissors, razors, Nair and now...the wax. Read

My night began as any other normal weeknight. Come home, eat dinner,
play with the dog. I then had the thought that would ring painfully in
my mind for the next few hours: 'Maybe I should pull the waxing kit out
of the medicine cabinet.'

So I headed to the site of my demise: the bathroom. It was one of those
'cold wax' kits. No melting a clump of hot wax, you just rub the strips
together in your hand, they get warm and you peel them apart and press
them to your leg (or wherever else) and you pull the hair right off.

No muss, no fuss. How hard can it be? I mean, I'm not a genius, but I
am mechanically inclined enough to figure this out. (YA THINK!?!)

So I pull one of the thin strips out. Its two strips facing each other
stuck together. Instead of rubbing them together, my genius kicks in so
I get out the hair dryer and heat it to 1000 degrees. ('Cold wax,'
yeah...right!) I lay the strip across my thigh. Hold the skin around
it tight and pull. It works!

OK, so it wasn't the best feeling, but it wasn't too bad. I can do
this! Hair removal no longer eludes me! I am She-rah, fighter of all
wayward body hair and maker of smooth skin extraordinaire.

With my next wax strip I move north. After checking on the dog, I sneak
back into the bathroom, for the ultimate hair fighting championship. I
drop my panties and place one foot on the toilet. Using the same
procedure, I apply the wax strip across the right side of my bikini
line, covering the right half of my hoo-ha and stretching down to the
inside of my butt cheek (it was a long strip)

I inhale deeply and brace myself....RRRRIIIPPP!!!! I'm blind!!! Blinded
from pain!!!!....OH MY GAWD!!!!!!!!! Vision returning, I notice that
I've only managed to pull off half the strip. CRAP! Another deep breath
and RIPP! Everything is spinning and spotted.

I think I may pass out...must stay conscious...must stay conscious.

Do I hear crashing drums??? Breathe, breathe...OK, back to normal.

I want to see my trophy - a wax covered strip, the one that has caused
me so much pain, with my hairy pelt sticking to it. I want to revel in
the glory that is my triumph over body hair. I hold up the strip!
There's no hair on it. Where is the hair??? WHERE IS THE WAX???

Slowly I ease my head down, foot still perched on the toilet. I see the
hair. The hair that should be on the strip...it's not! I touch. I am
touching wax. I run my fingers over the most sensitive part of my body,
which is now covered in cold wax and matted hair. Then I make the next
BIG mistake...remember my foot is still propped upon the toilet? I know
I need to do something. So I put my foot down.

Sealed shut! My butt is sealed shut. SEALED SHUT!

I penguin walk around the bathroom trying to figure out what to do and
think to myself 'Please don't let me get the urge to poop. My head may
pop off!'

What can I do to melt the wax? Hot water!! Hot water melts wax!! I'll
run the hottest water I can stand into the bathtub, get in, immerse the
wax-covered bits and the wax should melt and I can gently wipe it off,
right??? WRONG!!!!!!!

I get in the tub - the water is slightly hotter than that used to
torture prisoners of war or sterilize surgical equipment - I sit.

Now, the only thing worse than having your nether regions glued
together, is having them glued together and then glued to the bottom of
the tub...in scalding hot water. Which, by the way, doesn't melt cold

So, now I'm stuck to the bottom of the tub as though I had cemented
myself to the porcelain!! God bless the man who had convinced me a few
months ago to have a phone put in the bathroom!!!!!

I call my friend, thinking surely she has waxed before and has some
secret of how to get me undone. It's a very good conversation starter -
'So, my butt and hoo-ha are glued together to the bottom of the tub!'

There is a slight pause. She doesn't know any secret tricks for removal
but she does try to hide her laughter from me. She wants to know
exactly where the wax is located, 'Are we talking cheeks or hole or

She's laughing out loud by now...I can hear her. I give her the rundown
and she suggests I call the number on the side of the box. YEAH!!!!!
Right!! I should be the joke of someone else's night.

While we go through various solutions, I resort to trying to scrape the
wax off with a razor . Nothing feels better than to have your girlie
goodies covered in hot wax, glued shut, stuck to the tub in super hot
water and then dry-shaving the sticky wax off!!

By now the brain is not working, dignity has taken a major hike and I'm
pretty sure I'm going to need Post-Traumatic Stress counseling for this

My friend is still talking with me when I finally see my saving
grace....the lotion they give you to remove the excess wax.

What do I really have to lose at this point? I rub some on and
OHMYGOD!!!!!!! The scream probably woke the neighbors and scared the
dickens out of my friend. It's sooo painful, but I really don't care.
'IT WORKS!! It works !!' I get a hearty congratulation from my friend
and she hangs up. I successfully remove the remainder of the wax and
then notice to my grief and despair....THE HAIR IS STILL THERE.......ALL

So I recklessly shave it off. Heck, I'm numb by now. Nothing hurts. I
could have amputated my own leg at this point.

Next week I'm going to try hair color ....
