A close shave on the razor's edge

We were at the grocery store, stocking up on the appropriate chips and salsas for Super Bowl snacking.

I took a slight detour by way of the cosmetics aisle. Miss Roo and I were sorely short of some vital equipment for our beauty routines (cotton balls), and I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone.

As Wonderhubby and I rolled the cart down the aisle, he stopped at the razors.

"I can't believe the refills for the Mach 3 are $18 for three," he groused. "Three will last me forever."

(Please note: the man has a full beard and only needs razors for trimming around the facial edges.)

"There are disposable Mach 3s here," I pointed out helpfully.

"If I were going to buy disposables, I'd buy these," he said, picking up the cheapy Bic disposables. (He is nothing but consistent in his cheapness frugalness.)

I rolled my eyes and poked around the razors.

"I need some for me, and I like the curvy kind," I said, picking up some pink ones in a more feminine package.

"Well, then, let's just get the ones you like," said Wonderhubby, taking them out of my hand and throwing them in the cart.

"Uh ... sure. You want the purple one instead?"

"Pfffft. I don't care what color it is," he laughed.

That's my guy. Willing to shave with a pink razor.

And, as I have long known, totally comfortable in his masculinity.

KEv did the same thing when he shaved off his goatee. "I couldn't find my razor, so I just used one of yours."

(Having a better day today?)

I quit going to barber shops and started going to SWMBO's hairdresser when I found out that somebody else actually washes your hair and massages your scalp. We (males, that is) like a little pampering now and again, too.

AWESOME!

I love a man who's comfortable in his masculinity!

Stacie said...

razors are ridiculously overpriced...sucks.

and what's with some being behind the counter and stuff, how can I price compare with someone else retrieving several for me to look at?

I've got one of those gilette ones that you snap the refill on tip. It's been around through four or five presidential administrations.

My ex wouldn't be caught dead using it, but until recently, my hubby would use it to trim up the edges around the beard.

At least it is green...

(he shaved the beard off, so he bought himself a nice Wahl electric razor)

Funny guy. You can use that extra cash you saved on Tetris :0D

Burfica said...

Yeah Gigantor doesn't care about the color either. They had a sale on some pink and purple one's and we stocked up. I never used them, just him.

He only cares what color it is if he's wearing it. hahahahaha

See, this turned out way better than a similar shopping trip with Jason...

Debbie said...

Good for him. My husband is the same way!

Men are really funny, no? Mine uses the wash poof - but you think he'd share that info with anyone? Hells no. ENJOY FLORIDA!

Chris said...

My hubby's the same way. As long as it works and doesn't give him razor burn, he could care less about the color.

Karen said...

He says that now. I'll bet in the locker room he shaves to the tune of a different razor.

Trannyhead said...

My husband has totally swiped my razors, before, too. I approve.

Pamela said...

I always buy the mens disposable because they are cheaper.

I'd get along with wonderhubby's budgeting it appears.

Kelley said...

MPS is the same.

He even uses my Mum deodorant...

justmylife said...

I hide my razors from hubby. Otherwise I would never have any. This man goes through a razor every other day. He would use my pink ones if he could find them though.

Janet said...

I swear he and the Mountain Man are also twins separated at birth.

Jibber Jabber with Joyce-Anne said...

heeheehee. It's great he's comfortable using pick. Hey, will he wear a pink shirt? Just wondering.

Huckdoll said...

I must be getting soft because I found this post to be so gushy and sweet. Aww.

Jaina said...

Lol, too funny.
