There is a living cactus in my house

The other day I was chillin' in the living room when our 16 year old daughter came in to sit in there with me. She asked what I was doing and I told her that I wasn't doing anything special, just lounging around and watching television. She asked me if I wanted any company, I told her that I didn't mind her being in there if that's where she wanted to be. So as I was stretched out on the couch, she comes and throws her legs across me. I told her that her legs felt itchy and wanted to know if she could get them off me. I looked down at her legs and OMG, this girl had the hairiest of legs. I told her that she needed to go and shave because her legs felt like razor blades.

I asked her when was the last time she shaved and she said that she couldn't remember and then burst into laughter. I said, "well from the looks of it, looks like you haven't shaved since Adam and Eve were on earth." We did find it hilarious but these legs were so prickly and disgusting. I have never had hair on my legs...never, ever, ever. I told daughter that her legs look like cavemen legs so until she shaves them, her new name will be called Beowulf and she will be prohibited from putting them on me until the hair is removed.

I asked daughter if she felt she was a lady carrying around all this unnecessary hair and leaving pokes on anyone that comes in contact with this bush. There was nothing but consistent laughter and she says, "Mom, I'm just too lazy to do it, could you do it for me?" Huh, Me? Shave the legs of a 16 year old beast teenager??? I don't think so--unless she was helpless and couldn't do it herself. Just thinking about it makes me wonder how clogged up my sink will be WHEN she does shave. Drano, here I come.

Lovingly yours,


  1. That's too funny! She must wear jeans to school everyday...but just wait...summer's comin'!

  2. A woman once told me her husband thought hairy legs were sexy, so she didn't shave until she noticed him looking at clean shaven legs on OTHER women!

  3. i have never shaved my legs mother never talked to me about shaving them or keeping that other area at least you telling her..but you don't want to give her a complex, so don't push her unless she has so much hair you can start putting barretts and ponytails on it
