#SoCS Dec. 15/18 – Hairy

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “hairy.” Use it any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use it to mean more than one thing. Enjoy!

It’s that time of year. 

The cold has set in and you wrap youself up as much as you can to buffer yourself from the chill.

One huge benefit (for us laydees, anyway) is that we don’t feel the need to defuzz with great regularity, because who’s gonna get their legs out in this weather??!!


Of skirts and dresses, please be wary
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Deck the legs with many a layer-y
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Don we now our tights and jumpers
Fa la la, la la la, la la la
Tis the season to stay hairy
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Ritu 2018

But, have you ever ended up in a bit of a hairy situation because you genuinely haven’t been bothered about your bodily follicle growth in the winter? I did, the other day, when I went for a bra fitting, and I had to lift my arms for the tape measure to go round my ribs…

Eeeks! is all I can say!

Adn thinking of hairy… I may need to defuzz next week, as we have our work Christmas do! 

Double Eeeks!

    In life there are always uncertainties and as a result of these you have to suck it up and get on..cause if you don’t you’ll just jeep chasing something that truly can’t be caught..i am a soldier of one in an army of the few

    Oh Ritu, the images that you bring up.
    By the way, the idea of a poem with couple of lines of armpit hair is circulating in my brain for last couple of days but not brave enough to put it on paper ( or screen).

    “Deck the legs with many a layer-y
    Fa la la la la, la la la la”
    Stop shaving and let the legs be hairy
    Fa la la la la, la la la la

    By the way, have not gone to a barber in last two months trying to preserve what few precious strands I have left but now my better half threatens to cut me out of the family vacation trip without a hair cut ( not that I I would mind but I know it’s not going to happen), so this weekend I will have to make that trip.

    Guess one of the “perks” of getting older is that the hair on my legs and underarms doesn’t grow anymore. Sadly, the hair on my head is diminishing too! Nicely done, Ritu!

    Since I made use of your tip with the laser, I have no problems with body hair anymore. I am more or less “hair free”. This is soooo cool!!

    Haha, Ritu. I have very little body hair so this isn’t a problem for me.
