Razor thin

| Work and play | 1 Comment

There is a really fine line (razor thin I should say) between shaving yourself well and cutting yourself all over the place so that blood splatters arise on your freshly ironed spotlessly clean collar. This is especially annoying if you are wearing a white shirt to work with a professional-looking artificial silk tie (don't tell anyone), and during the coffee break you discover this in the bathroom while looking at yourself in the mirror. No one dares mention it for some reason (they must be polite and unintrusive, of course), but you know that everyone has noticed it. Today is Saturday so I had the opportunity this morning to do some experimental work without the fear of ruining another important presentation at my work. I took my time but shaved the very best that I could and as carefully as possible. The very same result, chop and chop and drips of blood oozing out. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that my face is not perfectly smooth, as I had previously suspected. It had a number of bumps and irregularities in the contour, meaning that these cellular maxima were neatly sliced off even if these tips were only a few microns across. The homeostatic properties of the human body mean that internal blood pressure will elicit an oozing of redness through these breaches in the skin holding you together, no matter what. Oh well, the solution is to give up shaving altogether or figure out a way of removing facial hairs more patiently without the barbarious implement referred to as a razor blade.
