Apologies for all the exclamation marks but I just found out the girls I’m going to Bali with DO NOT WAX!!!!!
They’re HAIRY. Everywhere.
I on the other hand have booked a wax even though I don’t really need one – full leg, bikini and underarms. I’ve added a manicure and pedicure and for good measure, an eyelash and eyebrow tint, highlights and a haircut too.
I’m grooming for holiday.
There will not be a single hair sneaking out of my bikini bottom. My legs will be smooth and shiny and even my underarms will be perfect.
I did suggest to my friends that perhaps they would like to do just a small trim and I could lend them a razor or even a scissors if they wanted.
They both sneered at me.
We will be hairy, they proudly said, strong and feminist to the core.
Oh dear, I thought, a teeny part of me wishing I was PURE WOMAN TOO!
Anyway. We’ve all been getting ready and have started a Bali WhatsApp group. We’ve been discussing the flight and our hotels but also sharing pics of our sunscreen, our bikinis, our DOLLARS and our lipsticks.
We’re excited. Very.
I’m a bit nervous too, I always get nervous before I travel. But I guess if things get bad for any reason, I can hide behind their bushes.
Anyway. We’re off in two days time and I’m about to start packing.
But oh dear oh dammit excuse the exclamation marks again but I just got an SMS from my beautician to reconfirm my appointment!!!!
And dear reader, I have booked the wrong date!!!
I booked for when we’re already in the air!!
She can’t squeeze me in either and this could be a disaster but you know, it’s cool, I am PURE WOMAN TOO!
So hey Bali, watch out.
Three gorgeous adventurous excited but rather hairy women are almost on their way.
Au Revoir. And see you on the other side.
