Good grief . . how can a husband and wife have such differences of opinions over something as simple as a razor? We can!
The last time I went to change the blade in my razor, I grabbed the next package of razor blades to place in the bathroom drawer.
Two of the blades are different so I was checking them out and noticed that there’s a slight problem.
The blades are for the Gillette razor.
My razor is a Shick. The blades won’t fit! I added Gillette razor to my shopping list.
Today, Mr. Shopper said “Want to run to town and get a taco?” It’s a trick. He does this all the time. I knew there was somewhere else he wanted to go but he knows I’ll say no unless he bribes me with offers of food. I said “Sure, but where else are we going?” He assured me he only had to stop at Home Depot and I was ok with that because one of the things he needed was a part to fix something on my kitchen faucet. Is there a blog reader out there who truly believes those are the only stops we made? NO!
Big Lots, CVS and he wanted to stop at Kroger and I said no way!
While at CVS, I went to get a razor. I know it would have been a bit less at Wal-Mart but who knows when I’ll get to Wal-Mart again and I’m not wearing long pants when it’s this hot and . . well, you probably know why I need a razor if I’m wearing shorts! So, I grabbed this razor, knowing Vince was going to flip out when he saw how much it costs.
Two liter drinks were on sale for 88¢ with a limit of 5 so he got 5 drinks and the only other thing was my razor. No way I was sneaking that purchase past him.
Checkout Lady: That will be $17.09.
Vince: HOW MUCH WAS THAT RAZOR?
Me: About $12.00
Checkout Lady: $11.73
I was getting a frowny face from my dear husband! We got out side and on the way to the car had this discussion:
Vince: Do you know I don’t spend $12 in a whole year on my razor and razor blades and you just spent that much for one razor?”
Me: Let’s look at this in terms of square inches! You have one face to shave. I have two legs to shave. I have a lot more area that I’m shaving.
Vince: Do you shave your legs every day?
Me: I might . . I mean . . I could if I needed to!
Vince: How do you know when you ‘need to’?
Then I was cracking up . . and he never smiled once!
I tried explaining to him that not only was this a nice razor but it also has a little suction thing that holds it on the side of the shower so I’m not constantly dropping it or knocked it off from wherever I put it down.
He still wasn’t impressed. I told him that some people have the hair on their legs permanently removed by electrolysis. I’ll bet that costs more than buying a $12 razor. Nope, he still wasn’t impressed.
I wonder if next time he wants to go shop hopping, maybe he’ll let me stay home! :)
