Remember this post about me having some waxing done? Well would you know it on Tuesday off I trot to the salon for a pedicure and waxing. Am I stupid, I must be, as I whined like crazy last time.........I still remember the pain..........and here I am again having it done. I not only get my upper lip waxed, I know a moustache on women in some countries is attractive Canada and the US isn't one of them, I get my bikini line waxed, plus my WHOLE legs?????
Now lets just say I'm no slim Jim. Thunder thighs would be a good description of my upper legs. So I lay down and she take one look at those gorgeous long svelte legs (I WISH) and decides that not only does she need the 10 gallon pail of wax to cover the amount of flesh, but with the amount of hair growing on those legs, she had better get the industrial strength wax out, and for good measure lets heat it up to boiling point so its an experience to remember..........
Okay, I am kidding about the 10 gallon pail and the industrial strength........I am barely kidding about it being molten wax.........at least I had the fore sight to tell her to blow on the wax to cool it down a bit before putting it on my top lip. That's all I need is third degree burns on my upper lip, what an attractive sight that would be? Then she mutters something about using a shovel to put on the wax with.......again joking!!!
Now the girl doing the waxing and pedicure is called Thu, she's a lovely little thing, but she insists on calling me Gillian with a hard "G", instead of "J." Anyhow she says, Gillian lay down and just have a nap while I do this. So I lay down and it just dawns on me what she said, "Have a nap." So up I pop again and say "People actually sleep through a waxing???" She then laughs and says "I was joking." I don't find it as funny as she does?
Anyhow, off she goes and honestly there are worse things in life...........not many things, but there are worse things in life. I was particularly sensitive just above the ankle, which I thought was a little unusual. Then all around the bikini line, that's still torturous, and the bit between your leg and bum.
Suffice to say I have survived the whole experience and now have hairless legs, so at least I won't have to shave my legs daily for the first week, plus I have lovely pinky/mauve toenails. Oh and best of all, my feet are so soft now, its freaky, I can normally sand a wall down with my rough heels.
So that's it no more waxing for me, enough of this pain...........well at least until next time ;0)
