Hey! Ho! Let’s Go!

Ok, since I am running late..always and can not find the time to spare to take care of myself, in the way  in which I am accustom to, I have had to resort to some home remedies. Ok, Moms you know what I am talking about. The Pedegg, home manicures, pedicures, home dye jobs, and even home waxing. God Bless you Nads! It seems my Pedro has been getting quite out of control…upstairs girls. I am referring to my ever so slightly hairy monkey lip that I so lovingly refer to as my womanstache! OK, so you say you’ve never seen me with this atrocity. Of course not, silly girl. I don’t go in public when the fuzz is a showin, well, not usually. It’s just one of my blessings of being Hispanic, come on my Greek and Italian girlfriends..you feel me, right? Anyways, this morning, I hit my threshold. Pedro had to be dealt with. So, I go to the bathroom to do the deed. Oh how I hate  being the one to do it. I flinch and sometimes I almost don’t want to pull the strip. I always flash back to the 40 Year Old Virgin..yeah, that’s what my lip feels like when I do it myself. I think its mostly mental, but whatever it is…it hurts. This morning my 2 and 5 year old follow me in, big surprise. They’ve seen it done to me at the salon, as they are always with me. There is not much I  can hide from them. Besides, poor dears, if they’ve inherited my hairy chihuahua gene they should know what they are in for. Anyways, my 5 year old, she is asking all the right questions. How does that work? Does that go on your face? Doesn’t that hurt? Smart cookie. I get into gotta do it mode, put that lovely little wax strip on my face ( I forgot the desensitizing  wipe because of the fear and trepidation of pulling the strip..it must be how a soldier feels right before pulling the pin in a grenade). I glance over at my girls, they both have their hands over their ears. I’m  not sure if its because they are  afraid that I am going to scream in pain and anguish or in anticipation of ear muffs due to the obscenities that may accompany such pain. I chuckle. Of  course, I chuckle. It’s hilarious that my kids know me so well. In unison, as I muster the courage to pull the strip, I hear..Hey! Ho! Let’s Go…to the waxing show! My little boogers..I cracked up so hard, I nearly ripped my nose off! Thanks Rock Band. As of late, my 2 year old can put anything to the tune of Blitzkrieg Bop by the Ramones! I am so proud. Hope my nose grows back.

    The video was hilarious. And your girls are a riot!

    LMAO! Your girls are seriously awesome! Next time I wax, I'll no doubt be humming that!

    Hi there! I'm half Greek and I gotta say, being 25 and plucking the occasional chest hair is terrifying. Have you ever seen Greek old ladies? Like authentic, part-man, part-woman, but mostly-man, old country Greek old ladies? Terrifying.

  4. You know, there aren't many times I enjoy being strawberry blonde/redheadish, but the mustache thing might be one of them, since having fair hair rocks when facial business comes into play. Waxing the pedro? No thank you. Waxing the lulu is bad enough. You poor dark haired ladies. See that's what you get for being exotic. 🙂

  5. @J, my girls are gems. The things that they come up with…amazes me. I don't know what I did for entertainment before them:) @ Mrs. Beer, Yeah, I think its a trade off. If you notice..Hispanic, Greek, and Italian women are quite frequently smokin hot babes…but the trade off is that we require lots up upkeep in the hair and big hips department ( we are shapely) but we are also usually blessed with beautiful faces and big boobies. We just gotta be careful not to turn into our hairy Grandmothers:)LMAO@Robin, I agree that video cracks me up but it also terrifies me:)A little too close tot he truth for me.
