Most men these days either seem to have some Gandalf the Wizard type beard or designer stubble. I don’t know where the term “designer” came from – it makes you look messy and like a tramp. That is why I am clean shaven. Well, except sometimes at weekends when I’m feeling lazy, can’t be bothered and don’t mind looking like a hobo.

To keep my face nice and smooth, I have one of those fancy shavers. It has lots of clever functions, including cleaning itself. The cleaning function works by fitting some fluid to a docking station and pressing a few buttons.

Five months after getting the shaver, the cleaning fluid ran out and had to be changed. I was intrigued as to what I would find in the old cleaning fluid case. Given that five months of beard had been removed from my face by the shaver and deposited into the container, I was expecting a lot of hair. Instead I found this…

Where was all the hair? This was my face yesterday, immediately after shaving.

Here is an artist’s impression of what my face would look like, had I not shaved it for five months.

So where has all the hair gone? I’ve put it down to one of life’s mysteries.

I then had to change the cleaning fluid. Apparently it was primarily alcohol. I did think of refilling the old container with Castlemaine lager, but thought that might cause damage. Instead I went for one of the official Braun refill packs. I suspect it’ll do a better job at cleaning my shaver than Castlemaine would – it probably tastes better too. It’ll be nearly Christmas the next time that one will need changing.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
