I like something free as well as the next person, so when I heard about a chance to receive a FREE! Schick Quattro Razor, with no purchase necessary, I quickly sent in my address. Well, dear readers, it arrived today and lo and behold - this is a sight for sore eyes! I never dreamed I could be so razor-illiterate. Let me tell you that in Maine, at this time of year, all the woodsy women are starting to come out of that winter hibernation and shaving the pelt that has been allowed to grow over the long winter. It can sometimes be a 2 razor deal. Not so anymore with the NEW! (and FREE!) Quattro. As quoted in the 22 page User Manual (22 pgs. I shit you NOT!) that came with it.....
Welcome to a journey into the world of high performance shaving. Now that you own the first high performance four-blade razor for women, you are a part of a growing group of smooth-legged women - women who don't settle for anything less..... We are honored you have decided to reach for a new level of shaving satisfaction and are joining this hair-free journey with us.
Ladies, if I can shave my legs without getting a severe leg cramp from contorting my body, shaving off some goosebumps, or requiring a few sutures, I am satisfied.....no, wait I am beyond satisfied. I am positively estatic.
This booklet came with chapters...including Troubleshooting (again, I shit you not!) I mean how difficult can this be? What struck me funny is the Shaving Glossary of Terms that I had no clue existed. They were very enlightening and with further ado, I'd like to share them and a sentence using the term with you .....
Bathtub Tinsel, noun
The ring of itty-bitty hairs and soap film left in the tub after a serious shave. "Just washed up from my week-long camping trip. Talk about hanging some bathtub tinsel!"
Chastity Pelt, noun
What you have on your legs when you intentionally go without shaving before a date as a way of making yourself behave. "I don't care how hot he is. I've got my chastitiy pelt on, so I'm not getting into trouble."
To keep your arms down and close to your body because it's summer, you're sleeveless and you forgot to shave your pits. "After all those stares I got on the subway, I'm going to have to go penguin-style until I can get home to shave".
Poky Little Puppy, noun
A tiny, prickly spot on an otherwise perfectly shaved leg that you can't stop petting for the rest of the day. Usually on a "how could I have have missed it?" location like the knee. "During that boring meeting, I kept petting the poky little puppy on my knee under the conference table".
A small, yet suprisingly gory cut from a cheap plastic razor - which creates your own scary shower scene. "Although it didn't hurt, that nick on my ankle sure turned out to be a psycho!"
Taming the Cave Lady, verb
To shave out-of-the-way places such as the toes - where women aren't shown by movies or magazines to have hair, yet almost all do. "Because I've got dark hair, I make taming the cave lady part of my shaving routine when open-toe season comes around."
Like-Buttah Legs, noun
The delicious feeling of melting into crisp bed sheets with silky, straight-from-the-bath legs - moments after shaving with a high performance razor. "It was a perfect night: a good meal, a rented movie and my like-buttah legs."
Well, there you have it dear readers..... the Quattro Sisterhood glossary of shaving terms to incorporate into your daily language. Did you know they exist? Do you have any new ones to add?
p.s I bought a pop-up camper that I pick up and setup for the first time on Thursday. This ought to be fun!
