|Shaving soap opera: It’s over. It’s not you – it’s me. You’re always there. You’re part of me but I need space for myself.|
Mo More Movember. The party is over. Call in the guys from Disney, string up the violins. A defenceless hairy creature faces the chop. Yes it’s the end of the line for the tash. Both Oscar and I have agreed that despite its value as a foolproof contraceptive, the furry beast is coming off. I’ve decided I just don’t write enough about kissing. Once the thing is gone I’m gonna grab him for a snogathon and report back. If some good woman had shaved off Stalin and Hitler maybe they would have had more pleasure and focused on better things in life.
It has been an interesting month. A procession of visitors both French and English have offered opinions on the thing. It’s a strange thing to loiter about while various women discuss whether your man is more or less attractive with or without. Oscar preens and struts offering trial kisses.
I’ve been fascinated by the vocabulary around the tash. Words like distinguished, sexy, aristocratic and artistic actually mean mad looking scruffy old goat. One lady said it made him look more like a poet. When I questioned her she admitted what she meant was mad looking scruffy old goat.
In rural France most males are in a permanent tash cycle between periodic shaves. In colder weather the period is often extended to fit in with other toiletry procedures. It’s a job to know who has a tash and who hasn’t.

So – there it is. Now it’s back to lining up on Runway One for Christmas. I’ve started already with a big turkey fest for all the family I won’t be seeing on the day. The tree is a treat, the pies are mincing, the prezzies are piling. And guess what I’m giving as little stocking gifts? YES – it’s the Hit Lit Pro Movember Anthology “Let’s Hear It For The Boys“. Go on girls – slip one in with his bag of nuts and help to keep him healthy.
