Oh yeah... that's what I was thinking too. :D :D :D :D
My oh my... you poor wee men DO get upset when you have a little hair removed huh? A "Sampson Complex" perhaps? I have to tell you; I would LOVE it if I woke up after surgery and found out I was all primped and fluffed. Every time I have ever gone into surgery it has been rather impromptu and I go under thinking "Damn! I KNEW I should have shaved my legs this morning!" You know... a girl likes to look her best.

That reminds me of an article I read years ago, when the female journalist was recalling having to undertake an intimate examination by her doctor, and to prepare for it she had showered and sprayed a feminine deoderant down there , and after the examination her GP had thanked her for taking the time to prepare herself for him.
She didn't understand what he meant until she got home and discovered that instead of deoderant, she had sprayed body glitter over herself!

My girlfriend was mortified when her doctor popped his head up and said, "Ohhhh, did you know you have a freckle on your freckle?"

We left soon afterwards with me dealing with melted hair and a singed scalp and my partner in hysterics.

Appropriately the relationship fizzled out soon afterwards :roll:

Does she now refer to you as her old flame??Image

Digging up an old topic here.

Today I learned about the Wilhelm Scream.

This is a sound effect that was first used in the early 50s of a man screaming. It was used very often in lots of TV and movies productions and has now become a cinematic sound cliché, with some directors adding it because it is so famous. :D

No, I learnt to over-act when a burst of rain arrives, 'cos it'll disappear just as quickly and I needn't have got the washing in! :roll:
