I have now converted a third friend here to traditional wet shaving, after giving him a spare razor, brush, and Palmolive stick. (And of course, directions to B&B.) If I have made no other impact during my time in Mississippi, at least I can claim this much with quiet pride.
I'm gonna have to sell some more razors soon: this kind of magnanimity means a dead financial loss on those razors! Good thing they were dirt cheap.
