An Adventure , I thought I would share..

Ok..So I thought I would share my wonderful adventure in the shower last night! I decided after I almost cut myself with my leg hair that it was time to shave the fur pants off..I don't need my winter coat yet..anyway..I am standing in the shower with shaving cream and razor in hand , Now I am a person that needs to sit and shave , I don't have very good balance...Anyway..I still have an issue with bending in certain positions and wouldnt you know that the shaving position is one of them! So I prop my leg up on the shower seat thing and lean against the towel bar , I them start my adventure in clearing the brush when all of the sudden I get a cramp in my leg , Lose my balance , and think the towel bar is going to help me stabilize myself...WRONG! I leaned against it a little to much and my arm slipped between the wall and the towel bar...Yup..Butt Naked , Stuck in a towel bar , half shaven , Conditioner in hair and not real sure how I am going to get out of there..I bang the wall thinking one of my kids or Hubby would come run to my rescue , WRONG AGAIN! So Me being me decides I am getting out of there even if I have to rip the bar out of the wall..Suddenly a light bulb goes off! Shampoo is slippery..( lol ) so , I dump it all over my arm and try to pry it out...No luck! In my frustration , I scream like a 5 year old and the hubby hears me finally and comes running..Flings the door open and sees me standing , with a soapy arm hanging in a towel bar , soapy hair , one leg with shaving cream on it and honkerblonked off with mascara running down my face as I hadnt gotten to washing my face yet..LOL!!!! What does he do? Laughs until he almost cries..He ended up having to take the towel bar off of the wall to get my arm out , Don't ask me how I got it slipped in there but couldnt get it out..Moral of this story is this..I NEED A BATH!! I am sick of showers...When one has a hysterectomy , Not all chores are so easy..LOL!!! Gotta find the humor in everything I guess..

LOL!!! My dh would have laughed first also Let me give you a little tip I've been sitting in a chair and shaving at my bathroom sink. I use conditioner instead of shaving cream. Just rinse the razor in the sink and wipe your legs down with a wet rag when your done.

Now, thanks to Aces, I think I will try it her way,,,no offense wonderwoman,,,but I have to learn from your experience and wont try that in the shower anytime soon.

ps. I CANT WAIT FOR A BATH!!!!! (not that i'm inpatient or anything)

Re: An Adventure , I thought I would share..

that was a crazy story. LOL. What I did was I have a plastic fairly small chair, I actually set it in the shower and sat on it while I showered worked like a charm, I could shave without bending also...

Re: An Adventure , I thought I would share..

Oh my, Wonderwoman. That could have turned out so wrong!!! And I'm not laughing at you though, I'm laughing with you.....nope, I'm laughing at you!!!!

Just teasing. I'm glad you're okay. That is a crazy situation, though!!! Thanks for giving me a laugh this morning.

I am so lucky that I have absolutely NO hair on my legs, so I have not had to worry about shaving. One less thing to worry about.

Re: An Adventure , I thought I would share..

Thank you for the mental picture - and the good laugh!!! I am wondering how long it is going to take before we can bend low enough to reach the lower calf? I may have to try the pull the chair up to the sink trick!

Re: An Adventure , I thought I would share..

LOL that is a good one!!! I have to admit to letting the hair grow just far enough that i can scratch my feet with it!!.. But once DH started letting his facial hair grow like that I made a deal with him.. I shave = he shaves.. a deal is a deal!!.. I finally got both legs FULLY shaven last night in the bathtub!! However.. all night I felt like I was leaking water!!

but my legs are smooth!!
