Okay. So. We all know I’ve been on a bit of a waxing kick lately, right? If not, click here and you’ll be caught up to snuff.
So I am. On a waxing kick, that is. I bought this wax from the razor and shaving cream aisle at my local Real Canadian Superstore (I wonder how long it took them to think of that name—and why “real?” I mean, the fact that it exists and I am walking over the threshold between the sliding doors tells me that it’s REAL…). It was cheap—under ten dollars, if I recall.
Technically what I bought is not body wax, but body sugar, although I’ll be darned if I know the difference. Image from here.
Anyway, I used it on my eyebrows last week, and it worked out all right so I decided to give it a shot on my underarms.
Which I did. And I recorded it. And then edited it into a mediocre video for Your Viewing Pleasure. Which you’re welcome to watch here, if you’re so inclined.
But first, a disclaimer:
See, I have mixed emotions about video blogs. On the one hand, I’m always interested to hear the voices of people whose blogs I read on a regular basis. It’s exciting to me for some perverse reason—probably the same reason I’m always intrigued to see what people have in their fridge or their purse or their kitchen drawers. It’s just exciting.
But on the other hand, I can’t imagine that anyone reading this blog would share my same level of enthusiasm for my voice, and moreover, I’m wordy—I can never seem to make my videos shorter than ten minutes. And people just don’t have that kind of time to sit around listening to me jabber. I realise that. Plus, some of you sneaky readers view my blog from your cubicles at work, and can’t sneak a ten-minute movie about armpit waxing into your workday. For that, I am truly sorry.
Nevertheless, I thought it would be prudent to document my very first (and heinously uninformed) attempt to wax my armpits.
Press play if you dare…
So, what are your feelings about the video post? Good? Bad? Good, but too long? Bad, and never should have been started in the first place? Be honest, because customer satisfaction is my aim, and I need to know the truth. *Grimace*
