10 Words Any Wife Waits To Hear

>> Monday, November 10, 2008

I got a haircut this weekend. Whenever I get a haircut, they never shave low enough down my hairy, hairy neck. So Pharmie, my wife, always gets out the clippers and shaves lower down my neck.

She always wants to shave more, but I always say, “That’s where I was meant to have hair.” She’d rather “touch up” my neck, my shoulders, and those 2 patches that have inconspicuously started to grow half way down my back on either side.

Well, this weekend after my haircut, Pharmie got out the clippers, and I said these words that she’s been waiting to hear:

“You have 2 minutes. Shave wherever you don’t want hair.”

Her eyes lit up! She was giddy!

When she was done, the sink was filled with back, shoulder, and neck hair:

BTW, the results are in from this past weekend’s 6.23K race (where I ran as a tomato), and I was 12th out of 427:

And, here are the results from the Tesfa 5K 9 days ago that Borsch and I ran:

If you haven’t seen the previous race report where I dressed as a tomato for a 6.23 K run, you CAN’T miss that. So scroll down, and have a great day!

2 minutes is a lot for a wife with a clipper! I actually expected a lot more hair in the sink! (My hubby has mysterious hair patches on his back, too! I shave them on occasion for him. Hehe. Sometimes, I want to use the tweezer but he says it's cruel and unusual... go figure! ;-)

Sissy. Go for the wax next time and make your wife really happy. :)

Marcy 6:54 AM, November 10, 2008  

I was expecting to see more hair than that :P

Jess 7:24 AM, November 10, 2008  

Now it's gonna sprout back all spiky. I agree with Xenia -- get the wax!

Ms Eva 8:40 AM, November 10, 2008  

I, too, thought there'd be more hair in the sink. My DH has me touch up after he gets his hair done, too.

Today represents a GREAT VICTORY both for your wife and for those of us who don't like hairy tomatoes.

(Unless it's the Seminal Punk Band, Teh Hairy Tomatoes.)

Brooke 9:46 AM, November 10, 2008  

Haha...totally thought there should be more hair also! And by the way- my boss wants to talk to you for introducing me to graph jam ;)

Viv 10:13 AM, November 10, 2008  

LMAO at Pharmies eyes lighting up for 2 minutes with the clippers!

J 10:18 AM, November 10, 2008  

Waxing is the way to go lol! No more shaving! Great job on the races!

My husband let me at him with a jar of Nads one time, and it was the most awesome afternoon ever!

Charisa 11:00 AM, November 10, 2008  

So nice of you to give her 2 minutes! haha!

Sarah 11:04 AM, November 10, 2008  

I think she's waiting to hear :laser. hair. removal.

Kelly 11:18 AM, November 10, 2008  

Wow, your wife is um... lucky?

tfh 12:00 PM, November 10, 2008  

If you're this speedy as a hairy neanderthal, just imagine how fast you could be if you gave your wife 5 more minutes...the hair is just weighing ya down! (Or is that just how my husband ropes me into shaving when my legs begin looking particularly ghastly?)

Unknown 12:25 PM, November 10, 2008  

Good idea - hairy tomatos are very creapy.

ncrunner12 12:45 PM, November 10, 2008  

I have my GF buzz my head because I'm too cheap to get a haircut and at first it was fun for her but now it's just a choir. I wish I could get to a point where her eyes would light up.

Awesome runs man, I hope to one day break 20:00 in a 5K.

Fizzgig 12:49 PM, November 10, 2008  

Im suprised thats all the hair there was.....suspicious. you must manscape yourself already!

CoachLiz 3:19 PM, November 10, 2008  

Hey, by the way...how long did it take for all the hair on your chest to grow back after the wax job?

Did it come back in finer than the stubble you get after shaving?

We want a follow up report!

i say tomato, you say tomato. hmmmmm... doesn't quite work when i'm writing it. either way, love the costume!

Nicole 4:21 PM, November 10, 2008  

I too was disappointed with the lack of hair in the sink...but I'm sure that was just what was left after you rinsed the sink because a wife with a pair of clippers AND 2 minutes can do quite a good job!!

Jess 4:42 PM, November 10, 2008  

I was expecting way more hair in the sink...

LOL and awesome job racing as the tomato!

M 5:11 PM, November 10, 2008  

When you're that fast, you can dress in whatever you what.

Seriously, you need to bring some of those costumes to Chicago - you would be a hit.

Shannon 7:06 PM, November 10, 2008  

Did she get you in the nose, ear? Just curious.....

he he

Mica 7:15 PM, November 10, 2008  

I love that you ran a race in a tomato costume. And Re:your comment on my blog--bad dance off?

The Lazy Triathlete 7:29 PM, November 10, 2008  

You should see the hair that Nair gets off my back. (Yes they make it for men).

Trihardist 8:39 PM, November 10, 2008  

Holy cow.

Sometimes I'm just so, so glad to be gay.

Also? If you use some teething ointment (the kind you put on babies' gums), you can use tweezers wherever you want. Well, I assume wherever you want. Have to admit, there are places I haven't tried that particular trick.

Patricio 8:56 PM, November 10, 2008  

Funny, I have to ask my wife to get rid of the neck hair too.

Just voted for you and it seems you are doing great. Hope you win!


Runner Susan 12:14 AM, November 11, 2008  

where do you even get a tomato costume? You really needed a bright green hat to match. Great time!

Emily 1:36 AM, November 11, 2008  

I voted for you Steve, even though I'm not sure what it was for....but good luck!

BTW, clippers can get dangerous...which is why I wield a razor.

nwgdc 6:58 AM, November 11, 2008  

Voting for you was a LOT more fun than the last time I voted. But I think you should start hammering your opponents with some 527 group mudslinging ads!

Michelle 7:29 AM, November 11, 2008  

You had me at neck hair!!!


Tammy 11:52 AM, November 11, 2008  

“You have 2 minutes. Shave wherever you don’t want hair.”

You are either very brave, or you really trust your wife with those clippers...

Ms. V. 2:44 PM, November 11, 2008  

You have 2 minutes. Seriously, I thought it was something else. Perhaps I was skimming!!

It's this post that makes me (momentarily) happy to be single.

Eww on neck hair!

RooBabs 3:03 PM, November 12, 2008  

Ewwww- hair in the sink!! That's my biggest pet peeve. Well, at least in the top 10. Hopefully Pharmie didn't have to rinse the sink.

Thanks for your comments! Have a great day!
