What’s the Opposite of Intuition?

I got a new razor over the weekend…the Intuition. My 17 year old sister uses one, so I figured I’d try it out. Why not? She’s in the “in the know” age group …she swims year ’round …so you’d think she’d know about such things. right?

I used it for the first time this morning and I’m feeling all sorts of prickly right now.  Maybe it was just that I was trying to shave my legs while I had goosebumps – I hate that! (I got up a little bit early and the heat hadn’t kicked on yet…anywhere the shower wasn’t directly spraying was a wee bit chilly). But I think it might actually have something to do with the “Skin Conditioning Solid” that surrounds the blade. Cool concept – especially since I don’t use shaving cream or soap while shaving (just water, thanks) – but this possibly means that I’m not getting that nice clean, close shave I’ve gotten used to. I’ll obviously keep trying this “new” invention out (how long has it been around now?), but I suspect that once I get the Solid to where it works right, the blade will be dull.

Anyone else use this? Is it just me?

P.S. Just looked up Intuition … the antonym? Knowledge or reason. Hm.

Is It Just Me?

So, the other day I’m cruising through my day and all of a sudden I stop cold. Did I brush my teeth today?? I honestly don’t recall doing it. Quick slide of the tongue over the teeth…they feel pretty smooth and squeaky clean…at least, no different than normal after the usual cup of coffee or two…but that may be due to our new kick-butt toothpaste. DAMN! I really can’t remember!

There would be, of course, an easy solution to this…just brush ’em again, but that’s not the point. What if I really didn’t?? How many people had I “close talked” with?? Was I all stanky and yellow? ACK!! Who the heck can’t remember if they haven’t brushed their teeth?

…and then I realize that I’m lucky if I remember to change out of my PJs and brush my hair. Oh crap. Did I?

Just Me

A conversation I had with Burke today

Burke: What’s that?

Me: That, my friend, is dinner.

Burke: Friend?

Me: Are you my friend?

Burke: (smiling) nooooo…

Me: Are you my son?

Burke: Nope. Just Burke.
