Oh stuff the bloody photoblog

Because I didn't take any photos today either. Who came up with this stupid idea anyway? Was it me?

Well I'm abandoning the idea of a photoblog week now. I'll just post this instead.

To the makers of 'Veet', the ladies' cosmetic hair removal cream.
(Not that I need to use this product, obviously, being a nymph of delicate stature, exquisite presentation and unblemished personage, and not as hairy as a builder's armpit).

But I'd just like to ask...

Why oh why, ten minutes after using your product, do my legs look hairier than a gorilla's arse? Tell me that.

I know I originally opened this tube in 2006, but don't use that as your excuse. Because do you know, if you put all those warnings on the side of a tube of Veet, like 'wow your skin is going to turn green, burn like acid and drop off in front of your face if you leave this product plastered on your leg for 10 minutes three seconds' do you know, that puts a girl right off? Especially while she is reading the back of the tube with one leg balanced over the top of the toilet.

Didn't the girl on the Li-lets instructions have one leg balanced on the toilet as well?

Now there's a sentence I never thought I'd write.

No, I have nothing to add to the previous comments!

Lol. I remember the Immac days.

Apply and stand in bath/shower for however long instructions on tube say. Wash the stuff off and...voila...smooth as a......

So, put on glad rags, go out for evening flashing smooth and silky pins. However, nobody comes near you because of the skunk-like aroma that this little beauty treatment leaves.

Ah..those were the days.

Oh! You've just reminded me of an advantage of the menopause. (They are few and far between, unfortunately.) The hairs on my legs have disappeared. Fortunately, I still have the hair on my head, although I have my fingers crossed as I boast about that.

Never works for me either!

Maggie May said...

Wanna see MY photos?

Kitty said...

Lol - that Veet stuff has a mind of its own. Apparently. And as for TMOTL's comment - I thought the diagram inside the Tampax packets involved raising one's leg on to the toilet seat? I believe Victoria Wood did a wonderful stand-up routine about it once.
