Sometimes I Just Don't Know How These Conversations Start....

Do you and your spouse have these kinds of conversations?  I'm hoping so, or I am going to feel really strange after posting this...  (and I did ask the hubby if I could post this one!)

So I am in the bathroom brushing my teeth last night and  Billy comes in to chat.  He starts telling me that he's found a great new use for Nair....  (background, my sweet Billy uses Nair on his back. Hairy, but so lovable...) So I of course hesitate, because Billy tends to use strange methods to achieve things...

Billy:  "You know how I am getting ear hair? Just swoosh it in there and wait, then Q-tip it out."

Me:  "WHAT?!?! That can't be safe. It could affect your hearing. Stop that."

Billy:  "Are you kidding?! Do you know how hard it is to get in the crevasses of your ear?! This is GREAT!"

Me:  "Ohmygosh, your ear is bleeding! There are red dots all over your ears! Did you just do this?!"

Billy: (casually wiping blood off his right ear)  "So I need to work out the kinks... It said 3 minutes, I probably went over."

Me: (quickly grabbing the Nair bottle out of the shower..) "Billy, it says use on legs, underarms, and bikini line. Nothing about EARS..."

Billy:  "BIKINI LINE! See! Same thing!"

Me: "Same thing?!?!? YOU CAN'T HEAR OUT OF THERE!!!" (wildly gesturing to my crotch)

Billy: "Some people say...."

Me: leaves the bathroom...... Heads to the bedroom... "Ummm, can I post this on the blog?"

Billy:  "What do I care?"    That's my Billy.......

So, you've had that conversation before, right???  :)


  1. Hahaha!!! Love this post!! Too funny. My husband is super hairy too but I usually just trim/shave his back for him. I'm glad he's never thought of putting Nair in his ears! That is waaayyyy too funny!!
    About your question...the ribs were soooo good. We went to The County Line on I-10 & the Collanade. It was really good and they have good lunch specials too.

  2. Hey, thanks for the kind comment on my blog. I am glad that I wasn't drinking anything when I read this post because it'd have been coming out my nose, I was laughing so hard. No, I've never had that conversation with Hubby. He doesn't have a hairy back, but I figure someday the ear hair will come (it always does for guys). When it does, all Nair in the house disappears....forever. Thanks for the heads-up!
