Despite getting nearly nothing done today, or perhaps because of it, I feel the need to at least pop a quick post up. After my extraordinarily productive Tuesday, I suppose I should forgive myself for not getting more done. I did pay my property taxes today before 8 AM, so that is something, and after the anal raping I received on them, I probably should have just gone back to bed.
Ace was finally well enough to get back in school, but sure enough around lunch time the phone rang yet again this week with a call from the office. This time Deuce needed to be picked up. Hardy boy that he is, he didn't even puke in my car even after I drove him all the way out to Costco. What a sweetheart.
So to top off the stomach flu that has gripped the casa, I'm pretty sure I gave myself a combined affliction of tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome planting all this infernal vegetation around the patios, and I'm now convinced after picking up yet another giant pile of cat puke, that I may have to get my little kitty in for bulimia counseling.
Anyway, to try to get myself in a better mood I thought I'd share this special offer from our good pals at Schick, who to my knowledge have NOT taken any government bailout money and for that should be applauded. The creative team in charge of naming new products, however, may need to get out of the office a little more, as they clearly have no idea that the word "trim" has multiple meanings.
I saw this revolutionary new personal grooming tool on a tv commercial, and you can believe the name immediately caught my attention. How happy was I then to find a print ad of it in Sunday's paper? Pretty darn happy. Not, strawberry ice cream on a hot day in July happy, but tickled nonetheless.
As you can see, this razor you can use on your legs and then flip it over, and voila! A waterproof bikini trimmer right there to handle your shaggy lady business! The idea is not a bad one, necessarily, but the product name "Trim Style" leaves those of us with pervy mindsets to immediately start questioning why they didn't just call it "Quattro: The Beav" or "Schick's Coochie Cutter". I mean, "trim style" makes it sound like there is a catalog of "haircuts" you can do with this thing.
I think I might start breaking that out in conversation. Like, "Yeah, what's your trim style?" or "Do you use product with your trim style?"
Also, I guess I've never figured out why one would need a specific razor for the bikini line as I've never had that much of an issue managing with the regular-size one I'm using on my legs. So, the product is sort of redundant, no? Can anyone clue me in to why a "trim styler" is a better way to prune the hedges? To me it seems sort of like attaching a ball peen hammer to the bottom end of a regular hammer. Could just be me. Whatever, this has definitely got me in a better mood. So there is that.
