This particular reader makes me smile on a daily basis. Here is part of his email regarding my underwear post.
“Oh, and yeah, thankfully I do not have a hairy back – I mean, of course, I have some “stragglers” here and there – Well like If I reach back to find some w/ my thumb and index finger as snatchers, it’s not like I easily have a hold of a bunch of hair – I have to search for these stragglers which makes it difficult to do anything about them. ARE ANY too much? I mean, even w/ the stragglers should I try and get rid of them some how? Any tips for a clueless male?”
ME: Wow, [redacted], do you mind if I post your email?
“Sure, why not?!
I do raise a good point. I mean, it poses a problem – I don’t have enough to be remotely gross or anything but I don’t even like these random stragglers like sporadic tree growth as one gets closer to the “tree line” of the frozen tundra.
So, do you have some salon do something about it which may be a waste of time and money? Do you ask a friend? A family member? Or do you take a hand held mirror and look into another stationary mirror and try and do something yourself?”
ME: I guess it really depends on how bad your problem is and whose checking out your back. If you have a girlfriend, I’m sure she would be more than happy to do that for you. A really good friend might shave it off. But at the end of the day, if the straglers aren’t bothering you or anyone else, then I would just let them hang out. If it’s on the top of your to-do list, then I would shave ‘em or get them waxed (just in case someone starts looking soon!)
