How Many In A Brazilian?


It’s been a while, but there was a time in my life that I thought it was a good idea to put hot wax on my general “lady” area.

It’s funny now, but trust me when I tell you, I was not laughing when it happened.

Anyway, I am all squirmy and happy to be on In The Powder Room today with my story about the time I gave myself an at home Brazilian wax.

Please come and see me there and if you don’t mind, leave me a comment. I always hate it when my guest posts don’t have any comments. It makes me lonely.

Oh, and just to update, Randy is still recovering. We had another setback and while it’s not super scary, it does mean more hospital time. Thank you so much for your collective good thoughts and support. I will bake all of you a cake.

Which honestly, is more of a threat than a reward.

  • OMG MICHELLE – how could you do that to yourself???
    I’m laughing myself silly. And once again confirmed that us hairy ladies are better off just owning it than most of the others ‘options’.

  • Haha, that is one of my favorite jokes! At least Bush was somewhat cuddly. We’ll never be able to make such jokes about Trump without shivering at least a little.

    Still sending all my good vibes to you and Randy!!

  • Grabbing my coffee…wait…I’m coming!

    Soooo glad to hear Randy’s maintaining. You two hang in there 🙂

    *quick running hug*

    See you ‘In the Powder Room!’

    • I hope you like it!

      Yeah, we are. Yesterday was ROUGH..he did not have a good day, but he seems better today. I’m hoping he will be home by Sunday. This has been a nightmare

      • OMG!! LOVED it!
        You made me bring up Darwin and hair removal 🙂
        Looking forward to Sunday! Hoping for you and Randy to get a break from the ‘Take Me Now’ roller coaster ride you’ve been on.
        You are one tough hirsute bad-ass motherfucker…
        (Is Randy hairy? He can be one, too, then. Otherwise he’s just a badass mo-fo :))

  • I did this to myself, ONCE. A few days before my wedding to my first husband. I cried. When I got married to my second husband, I got that stuff done professionally!

    Shared everywhere! Glad Randy is stable 🙂

  • I haven’t been over there to read the story yet–I would say I feel kind of pervy wandering into places with names like “The Powder Room” because they sound like lady areas, but since you used the term “lady area” to mean…anyway, I’m going to go over there and I’m sure I’ll laugh hysterically and leave a comment but I’m also commenting here. Even though I’m not the only one I want to make extra special sure you don’t get lonely. I know how much comments mean.

    Also after all you’ve been through someone should be baking a cake for you. I have a friend who’s a professional baker and caterer. If she did house calls I would send her to you.

  • Michelle,
    OMG! I stop reading everything for a couple of weeks and just read back about Randy. I am so sorry you are going through this! We had a rough year last year and it seemed it would never end. The worry. The loss of sleep. It is all exhausting. But then one day it was better. I didn’t even notice it at first because it think I was catching up. But it was better. I don’t know how we got through it, but I suspect you had something to do with it. All my thoughts and prayers are with you. One day, without even noticing it, it will be better. Just a sweet moment on the porch with your love and it will all be gone. Xoxo

    • Thank you..this is so comforting to me. I can’t wait until I get there. I think maybe we’re at the tail end of it. I hope. I have thought that before, I am not convinced yet.

  • If I have to be threatened, let it be with cake! Ha! Hey, you guys hang in there and I’m looking forward to the next announcement that Randy is doing so much better and home once again. Hold on! I’m going to go check you out In The Powder Room now. Can I bring my bowl of oatmeal into the powder room? Is that considered tacky? 🙂

      • Crap! You guys are gonna laugh when you read my SAME comment twice…aahhh cyberspace. It’s going to be very interesting in the future when they find all the lost emails and missing posts from forums.
        Like time capsules of technology.
        Anyway! Great article, Michelle! Fun to sit by you Terri Lee!
        See you at the next formal gathering 🙂

  • Your muff is there for a reason. Whatever it is. Leave it the hell alone. I don’t think there’s a hetero male alive that would pass up getting laid just because there was hair where he wanted to be. And if it’s because of a bathing suit – well get another bathing suit.

  • There is a little storefront nextdoor to my local UPS Store that has a big banner with the 3 scariest words in the English language, “Full Body Wax”….I just cannot imagine who or why….

    Best to Randy. Hope he’s back home annoying you at full force soon…

  • Can I have chocolate cake PLEASE !!!! Randy you better be home and well soon GOD and YOU know what damage Michelle can do ( cake and the wax thing ?? Hope I dont get hair in the cake !!
    Fingers crossed for everything xxxx

  • “Accept that someone in your distant past fucked a Bigfoot.” Oh my goodness, Michelle, for that sentence alone, I will love you forever.

  • So sorry to hear about more time in the hospital! Sending prayers for fast recovery, and I’m sure you’re making him laugh, which may be painful but is the best medicine! It’s why I read everything you write.

  • Well, make a cake good enough you want to eat the whole thing by yourself 😉 More hospital time is scary. I’m glad he’s on the right track? I hope he’s on the right track? Curse those rebellious organs!

    And so far as waxing goes…..yeah. I’ve had my eyebrows done a couple times (because for some reason plucking eyebrows is far worse than waxing them). That’s as far as that’s gonna go.
