Ok today, I have a meeting at 4PM NZ time, it's 3.30 already so a quick story to tell.
Today I went to the gym for the usual workout, but today is big cheese meeting day, so I thought I'd pull out the stops and have a close smooth shave, because it's all about looking your best and professional.
SO, I lather up and go stand in the sauna while I rub the shave cream in my face, a few guys sitting in there look at me for a while, and say nothing.
then I leave grab my straight and brush and cream back out of my locker and head to the sinks.
Guy who was in the sauna is now standing at a sink picking his zits or whatever and does a double take at the straight razor sitting on the counter.
"Whooooaaaaa, what are you going to do with that" he asks.
"Errm shave with it mate" say I.
"*hit, you'll cut most of your face off with one of those" he said
" wanna bet, just stand there and watch" I advised...
the next minute 4 blokes are all standing there watching me shave with my straight, which I might add I haven't used for a few months, I want to make a good impression with this stuff so take my time, pull out a perfect 3 pass shave and a near as damn it BBS finish.
Now they ask if I can shave them "Old fashion style"...ha ha ha .....I don't think I'm up to shaving others just yet, but I now have 4 new friends at the gym all asking where to get stuff like I have.....
..sorry guys, the price for shaving gear might just go up a little more.
