Home Care Horror Monday : Part 11


Grooming.  Essential stuff, right?  So essential, I feel it is my duty to dedicate two issues of Home Care Horror Monday to it.  Because we all like to look good, right?

Electric Hair Trimmer  $14.90

It's this simple : If you shave it, you will regret it.

So, if you use this product, you will get a bit of a buzz thanks to the battery powered motor, but you will also grow a killer set of bushy brows, and a matching moustache.  Mark my words.

I love that they market it as being an alternative to razor rash and shaving.  It is essentially a mini electric razor.

Maybe I could get one of theses for #1 Hubby to shave his head with, on the assumption that it may promote new growth on his follicularly challenged head.

Wrap-around Towel  $39.90
 Ooh la la.  Toga party here I come!  And when I get totally shit faced with my frat house buddies, I don't have to worry about my costume slipping off, thanks to the ingenius shoulder strap.

I would be concerned about the fact that it has 3 arm holes on one side.  But, think about the type of person who would buy this.  It actually makes sense, right?  Having said that, I do hope it  comes with detailed instructions, complete with step-by-step diagrams, as I get the feeling a procurer of this item would likely require such extensive instruction in its use.

Magnifying Makeup Glasses  $15.90
 Okay so I'm just going to 'fess up.  My mother owns a pair of these.  And I once used them.  Because we were both chronically short sighted before laser eye surgery fixed all that.
  • Issue : They are crap
  • Issue : They don't work
  • Issue : They look like crap that wouldn't work
  • Issue : I can't believe my own mother fell for it
  • Issue : Or that I thought it looked like a feasible option and tried them for myself
Disclaimer : This was a number of years ago.  I was young and foolish and easily led.

As opposed to now, and being slightly less-young, just as foolish, and even more easily led - but equipped with the sarcasm to bluff my way through.
