Every time I go to this little homemade soap shop where I live, I always stop to admire the tiny men's shelf with it's manly smells and badger-hair shaving brushes. On our most recent excursion, my friend (one of the ones who knows about my hirsutism) stopped with me and picked up a tin of moustache wax with a picture of a very dapper, curly handlebar mustache on the lid.
She said, "Man, if I could grow a mustache, I would grow a pirate mustache!"
I laughed. "Sadly, for all the things I can grow, a mustache isn't one of them."
Then I thought, I can't believe I said that out loud. I wonder who heard me? And I quickly moved on towards the other soaps.
Still, it's important to have someone to joke with. Laughter helps you deal.
