Got 2 Merkurs actually, and one was a little bit of a suprise!!
OK, so The Bride and I go shopping in Detroit as we do most weekends. When we were done, I told her I was taking a detour on the way home as I wanted to visit a shaving shop. She rolled her eyes the same way as when I take a side trip to JR Cigars!!
Anyway, I wanted to visit The Time & Shaver Shop in the Detroit suburb of Redford Township (short review coming Michael).
I pull in the parking lot and she says "Cool, a watch shop, I'm gonna have a look".
Make a long story short, I looked over their selection of Merkurs and Dovos ( ) and after a while of trying to Decide, I got a Long Handled Classic, only because of the price. It was $29.99, which I thought was the same as Classicshaving.com, and my memory served me right. The Futur I seemed to think was a little expensive in this shop, and I was right, it was $69.99, as opposed to $49.99 at the same reference as above. (The Futur felt real nice in my hand though and it was super hard to walk away from.)
So I got a pack of blades with it, and found the wife trying on a watch. I told her I was going next door to fill the car up with gas, and I'd wait for her in the car.
Skip ahead to supper. I cooked a nice Butter chicken for us (her favourite Indian dish) and made her a Cappuccino after with a double Espresso for myself. As we're sitting enjoying the coffees, she pipes up and says "Oh, by the way, I got you a little something today". I couldn't figure out what it was as I was thinking she hadn't been alone (I had forgotten the razor store). She comes out with the Futur I was dreaming over!!!!!!!
So, now I can't wait for a shower tonight before I go to bed.
BTW, I also snagged a bottle of Poraso Pre Shave Cream, and a tub of Poraso Green Shave Cream, that was in the Shoppers Drug Mart here in town.
Sorry to be so long winded and type out a diary, but I am so excited!!!
Wife says small things amuse small minds!!!
