I have been trying to hone and strop one of my vintage razors, and having run out of hair on my left arm and both thighs, and believing I was close to getting it right, I tried it out on the right side of my face last night.
Turns out the razor still wasn't quite sharp enough to shave with, but it still took a decent chunk of hair off my cheek.
I looked at the clock and realised that I had been so engrossed with my honing attempt that I had lost track of time and it was 4am, so I went to bed.
Today I woke up, had a shower, didn't bother to shave, and since I had the day off, I just lounged around. At 5pm, I went to the pub to meet my friend because she was having a leaving do with her workmates.
It was only around 10pm that I ran my hand over my stubble and realised to my horror that I had a bald rectangle about 3" square on my right cheek!
Turns out everyone had noticed, but had been too polite to say anything....
