What makes you grin? Antidote to grumpy thread

Split between Grumpy and Grinny.

My shaver packed up about a year ago.  I had a Philishave one in reserve but it was a bit crap.  Bought a Chinese one from AldiLidl.  Not bad at first, rubbish now.

Bought some shaving gel yesterday and had a wet shave today - disposable cheapshit razors that have been here for years, god knows why as I haven't had a wet shave since early seventies.

I was hesitant but it worked well and was faster than anticipated, and not as painful either :)

The anointment of shaving gel on my clothes and floor, the blood on the towels and bath mat were only to be expected.  A negative bonus.

May even get shaved again.  Not too soon hopefully.

It was with great interest I learnt the spirits are back at work .   One building had to be blessed a few years back , but Halloween brings it all back out  . 

I will have a word with them ...

The only spirits here are Johnnie Walker ones - or were, the bottle is empty now :(

Wet Mach 3, M9. Erasmic foam if you can get it, any other if not.

I remember Erasmic from the sixties.  I had a job finding anything and had to ask.  No idea what it is except blue.

Whatsa Wet Mach?

It's one of the many overpriced multiblade shaving jobbies. See also the Gillette Venus. 

Shaving with a DE blade is a far more satisfying experience. It's the way of the past.
