The Pits of Hell

Last week I accomplished a life-long goal.  It's something I've been intrigued by for a while now, but I was always held back by fear.  Yet the desire to do it never faded. And so, on Monday, August 22 in the year 2011, I decided the time had come.  I cast aside trepidation and finally went for it.  That's right folks---I got my armpits waxed.

And Steve Carell wasn't kidding.  It hurt like a Kelly Clarkson.


Seriously though, it wasn't that bad.  I was able to keep all screaming on the inside, and each consecutive swipe (FOUR under each arm!) got gradually less painful.  At least that's what I'm telling myself now.  I'll make no excuses for the demon tweezers that swooped in for clean up though. Still a bit miffed at them.

But the girl promised me the first time's always the worst, and I choose to believe her because it's been SO awesome not having to shave, and I plan to go back for more.  Other than some stinging that first night, it's been smooooth sailing.  :)

So, what scary things have you got planned for this week?



Is Monday, and time to get hoppin' a the weekly Meet an Author Monday Blog Hop hosted this week by Killian McRae.

No one's getting near me with hot wax!

Holy crap, are you insane? LOL! Just the thought of hot wax anywhere on my body, gives me the chills.

As for me, the only scary stuff I plan to do this week is try and reformat my book. And that's going to be a horror show.

Since I'm fairly hairless anyway (except on my head thank goodness!) this has never been a consideration for me, but I am pondering your question. And thinking I need to do at least one scary thing a day this week. That would be very good for me. But it won't be body waxing! Or tatooing *at my age? shudder*

I totally did not expect that! Nick, I'm sitting here shaking my head and laughing. Too funny.

I'm with Alex! I get the willies just thinking about waxing. :(

Jennifer Lane said...

Wow, that's very brave of you! I've never even heard of waxing there. Is that how models get such hairless armpits? Let us know if it gets easier over time. I know my eyebrow plucking doesn't really hurt anymore but the first time was way ouchy!

OUCH! You are way braver than I am. And to look forward to going back? Whoa. Well, I guess if women couldn't handle pain, we'd all be only children.

I don't have anything scary planned, unless you count camping with my family. Okay, maybe that's a little scary...

Good for you Nicki, for trying something new. I'm so glad you're pleased with the results.
