Neither Hide nor Hair

She asks me why I'm such a hairy guy. I'm hairy noon and night. Hell that's a fright. Actually I'm not a hairy guy..a little chest air on my arms I have now that are white. AND those took over 60 years to finally show up on my body. What I see or don't see right now are these tiny white hairs inside my ears and on the outside. It's nothing terrible or gross looking. My wife sometimes says I have them. I can barely,if at all, see them..those little hairy guys.

I can get those hairs outside my ears with no problem. I have this vibrating trimmer but it never seems to work so on the outside of my ear, a razor or even scissors does the job. Sometimes I'll use one of those disposable razors in my ear. I seem to be able to get the hairs even if I can't see them but I can feel them. The other day I stuck the razor in my left ear as I've done many times before. I felt a sharp pinching pain as I shaved in my ear. I know shaving in one's ear sounds crazy and no....I don't use shaving cream in my ears.

Anyway,the other day I had what I can only describe as a hair raising experience. Just a couple of seconds after shaving my ear and hurting there, blood started flowing out of my ear...and this was more than a trickle. I shoved in tissues but in a few moments they were saturated in blood. Now I was not trying to be Vincent Van Gogh . I called for my wife to come over and she kind of plugged up the areas with tissue .She could see where the skin was cut. I had cut my right ear too but that ear wasn't bleeding. Anyway, the flow of blood finally stopped.

My wife thinks I'm crazy to shave in my ears. I guess I have to agree now. Oh. I've used scissors to cut hairs in my ears too. These are small scissors not your garden variety gardening scissors or trimming shears. I think it would be prudent to just limit myself to Q-tips now. I've read that is only advisable on the outer edges of the ear...not sticking it all the way inside where the sun doesn't shine. But I am thinking of using a toothbrush in my ear and applying one of those depilatory creams or lotions. I'm just hopeful I don't have another bad hair day when I do.

Just joking about the waxing....very painful procedure. Pouring buckets of rain on this wet/west coast, as usual.

I would not recommend using depilatory in or even on your ears. It's like putting lye on yourself, and smells like rotten eggs. If it got very far inside your ear, you'd have a serious problem. There are electric trimmers you can investigate.

Hi. Thanx for your response. No....I'm not putting any depilatories in my ear. I was only joking about that. I post a lot of humor on this site as well as other baby boomer sites. It's finally cold here in NYC/Long Island. We have a second home in the Pocono Lakes area of Pennsylvania. Take care. Stay warm. MARK

Have you considered waxing?

Hi Marg. Thanks for responding to my little white hair in my ears. Waxing? What will that do? I'll ask my wife. Thanks for the suggestion. Freezing cold here in NYC after unseasonably warm October and first week of November. MARK
