I replaced the lost blade and that was it. End of the story.
About a month ago I was getting ready to shave when I thought I'd better clean my razor. I
"Oh yeah," I said. "Yeah, that's no good."
And then I reached over and flushed the toilet.
"Okay," That little voice said. "Do you see what you just did there? You just flushed a piece of metal down your drain. Titanium. A little circular do-dad with a gajillion tiny teeth on it. If that gets stuck somewhere it's going to start grabbing onto stuff. Like toilet paper and stuff. Do you see what I'm saying..."
"No. No. Noooooooo." I hollered. So I quickly flushed the toilet 13 times because hey that's a magical number. That will flush it down into the sewer. I hope.
Three Days Later
My wife and I go out to buy me a razor. And not just any razor. This razor has got to be the perfect razor. And change would be good. Let's try something different. We hit 4 stores and I am not happy. The perfect razor cost $239.00 and I am not spending that much money on something that I am going to end up replacing in 2 years or so anyways. I've never had a razor that lasted more than a couple of years. But then, I've never had a $239.00 razor either. I've always used a three rotary blade razor and been happy. Well I was looking for change so I got myself one of the two foil razors. I took it home and I plugged it in and waited for it to charge up overnight. In the morning I turned it on and I thought I had just gone to watch the Nascar races. The thing was so loud it literally scared me when I turned it on.
"I hate this!" I yelled.
Now it had been a few days since I had shaved so I was going to have to use the trimmer first. I ran the blade across my face and the trimmer seemed to work fine. Other than the fact that it shot stubble out in all directions for at least 5 feet. Kind of messy I thought. And so now the shave...
I ran the razor across my chin and I started screaming. This PS 3000 Titanium Ultra Close Special Micro Screen was literally ripping the hair right off of my face. I did this for about 14 seconds and I then had a look see. I had to finish what I had started. After spending a few minutes shaving I ran my hand over my face and chin and there were still patches of stubble all over the place. It seemed like loggers had gone in and clear cut one area and then moved on to another. I ran the razor for another 5 minutes and I still had hair on my face. So I went back and plucked it out with tweezers. After I was done I looked in the mirror and I had tiny little red spots on my chin. They were blood spots from my hair being yanked out at the roots.
One Month Later
Last night Lois brought me home a new razor. It is a floating rotary brand that she picked up for $40.00 and it had been on sale at half price. Regularly $80.00 and something.
Goodbye you piece of junk PS 3000. I've got the...the...the...
The PS 3001 Titanium Ultra Close Rotary Micro Screen. Your brother.
I am waiting for it to charge right now.
