Pit Hair

All pits have hair.
Boy pits.
Girl pits.
They all have hair.
We girls have confused the poor boys.
We shave it off,
They think it is nonexistent.
I have learned...
Boys are VERY literal.
And they don't ask questions.
They just assume.
So in their minds,
they just assume we have hairless pits.
That brings me to this morning.
I hit the snooze button about 5 times.
The last time my alarm went off I decided I should probably get up.
Then BayLee started his morning stretches beside me.
It looked like a fabulous idea,
so I joined him.
I was in mid, full body stretch
with my toes pointed and my arms above my head
when Tyler rolled over.
His face was within an inch of my armpit.
When he opened his eyes
he identified his surroundings
and quickly scooted back.
His face was covered with fear.
I feel like I should tell you all that I am growing my pit hairs out...
I have an appointment to get them waxed.
I've been growing them out for about a week
so they are currently flowing in the wind like Fabio's hair.
 Back to this morning.
He couldn't look away from my armpit.
I was confused at first.
I had forgotten that I had footlong hairs under there.
Babe, what are you looking at?
......what is under your arm?
I looked under my arm and quickly put my arms down.
Are you talking about the hair?
You have hair under your arms?
Well yeah.  I'm growing it out so I can get it waxed.
Growing it out?
Yeah..  I'm going to get it waxed instead of shaving it.
Next week.

Poor Tyler. 
He was horrified.
He had no idea.
I never knew I needed to tell him that I shave my armpits.
If I ever tell him that in addition to the pit hair,
I also have a stache on my upper lip and a forrest above my eyes,
he might have a heart attack.
I think I'll just let him find out about the my stache and forrest on his own, too.

I'll let you know how my pit wax goes...
I've never had it done before.
I'm positive it will feel like someone lit them on fire.
But they say that waxing will make them grow back fewer and finer.
So it might be worth the pain.
We'll see.

If you have ever had yours waxed or even if you haven't...
let me know how you feel about it, haha.

It's almost Friday!

Hahaha! =-) This is so wonderful. I love your posts about normal, newlywed things. Ahh....the glory of learning!

Meg @ Mr.C and Me said...

ooo intrigued about this waxing as i am a hairy beast of a woman lol mr.c learned early on in our relationship about the forest of leg & pit hair as i get very frustrated with how fast it grows and sometime boycott shaving (seriously, i'd have to shave every freakin' day!). thank god he's still in the dark about the stache haha and it better say that way 'til we die. oh how lovely it is to be a lady! :)

Cassie said...

oh my goodness - too too funny.

my sister swears by growing it out just a little bit longer gives you a better shave. so if she is in a wedding she won't shave from like monday until saturday morning before the wedding. the last one she was in she was traveling with her bf and he was like oh my god why haven't you shaved your pits. ha - needless to say that made for an awkward conversation. lol.

Tere Shake said...

that is hilarious. i usually just tell my husband that i am waxing them if i forget to shave:)

my advice would be to take any kind of narcotic you have! it is NOT the best feeling in the world.

Your stories make me so excited to fall in love again and freak a man out. so excited.

Rachel @lifeasMrs said...

Lol this is too funny. I have gotten my pits waxed before, but I also got them after a Brazilian wax which was traumatizing. So following that with the pits was no big deal. Duh it's gonna hurt like a bi*ch, but I don't remember crying over it like I was already for the other one. Good luck though!

Sara said...

Bahaha, SO funny! Men are so oblivious, it's actually kind of sweet in the most annoying way. And btw, I loved the Fabio hair comparison. Made my day. ;)

amanda saliga said...

hahaha Men don't think we poop either. I'm like what do you think I do when I go in there in the middle of the day? hang out and stare at myself? and my husband tells me he thinks I go in there to put make up on or reapply my chap-stick....

Ummm, I got my armpits waxed 2 weeks ago. I've had a lot of things waxed in my day. A LOT. And let me say, the armpits were by far the worst. Haha. Not to mention that you can only wax it so many times in one session so my girl had to resort to plucking the rest of them. It was awful. I doubt I'd ever do it again.

Autumn Ingram said...

Yes they are! :)

Autumn Ingram said...

Lol they are the best! Learning is the definition of marriage! :)

Autumn Ingram said...

Hahaha! I will let you know how it goes! I hope my hubs never finds out about my stache either...every time he sees one on other girls he makes it very clear that it's gross...and then he says "I'm so glad you don't have one"...little does he know;)

Autumn Ingram said...

Oh my word, I've never heard that but I may have to try it:) lol

Autumn Ingram said...

Haha! Oh my gosh....I feel like I am going to regret it as soon as I'm laying on the table!

Autumn Ingram said...

Yes they are!

Autumn Ingram said...

Freaking them out is the best part!

Autumn Ingram said...

I scheduled a Brazilian before my wedding but I was a no-show lol I was too scared!! You are braver than I am!

Autumn Ingram said...

Hahaha I thought it was appropriate:)

Autumn Ingram said...

I knowww! Tyler has a lot of false beliefs...but he definitely has less than he had before we were married lol

Autumn Ingram said...

Oh my gosh....if they start pluckin on my pits I might punch them in the face! The real question is.....have your hairs grown back yet????

Ashley said...
