First ever shave memories.how did it go,what was it with?
Many many years ago i crept into my mum and dads bathroom.if i can recolect it was nineish and a weekday.i must have been thirteen and in no way needing a shave.so with youth on my side and common sense not i opend the bathroom cabinet and peered in.
selecting an old spice shave stick(i can still smell it now,powdery and soapy)well worn brush and a black handle adjustable i set to work making the lather on the stick and applying it to my younger face.
i had never seen my dad shave,he didnt have a beard so he must have done.he had experimented with a moustache and at one point even had sideburns so he must at some point shaved.
after swiping this de allover my already bbs face i appied a liberal spash of old spice aftershave allover my freshly shaved face.i thought i was going to pass out,there is not many times in life you are doubled over in a bathroom in a silent sink grabbing scream( well there was that christmas at a relatives but hey ho)
But the main jist of this is i have still after nearly thirty years a very stong memory of this,the smells and the feeling of "growing up"and having my first shave.
what are your memories and if anyone ever has an old spice shave stick used or not id be more than glad to take it off your hands or do a swap for any english products you want.
i love my gran, why only the other day she said "that o bama fellow ,its so good to see an irishman in office."
