Consumer Reports recently took a close look at women's shaving blades. They had a panel of 18 women shave their legs with a variety of razors and the results are a stunner: Every razor they checked had the same quality!
I was 12 when my mother sat beside me, nervously cleared her throat, and gave this serious admonishment: I was never to shave my legs. I solemnly nodded but neglected to mention that I secretly had been shaving for more than a year.
My little hiatus from shaving has been awesome. I've learned some new things about myself, engaged in some substantial, thoughtful dialogue with many peers, and got to play around with some social norms.
