The Hairy Widow

So my little suburban Houston town has been experience rolling blackouts over the past week, in order to conserve energy for the following reasons:

1.) We have been under a heat advisory for the past million years. Everyone has been running their A/C's at full blast, just to cool their houses down to a comfortable 95 degrees, which, in turn, has been sucking every last drop of electricity from Entergy.

2.) Hurricane Katrina. (The ho-bag.)

3.) Hurricane Rita (The big tease.)

So last night, when I finally came home from work, my power was out. It was about 7:30 pm and I had about 5 good minutes of daylight left before all was about to fade to black. What's the first thing you would do in this situation? Unpack your flashlight? Find your stash of Hurricane-Rita-D-batteries? Start lighting some candles? Not me. The first thing I did was shave my legs. You know, just in case Guy #6 came around later on...I didn't want to be unprepared.

Cost of Razor? $0.99
Cost of Shaving Cream? $2.99
Cost of having legs as smooooooooove as buttah? PRICELESS

Yay for consistency. And smooth legs! And for Centerpoint - our power hasn't crapped out yet.

Although I'd rather be in the dark with a dude than in the AC without.
