I'm talking about traditional wet shaving here. You know you have it really bad when you do shave related things without thinking about them.

Like:

-Mowing the lawn with 3 passes(WTG, XTG & ATG) and a touch up.
-Running out of lawn mower gas and thinking the Veg will be a great replacement.
-Stropping your steak knife while at the dinner table.

Do you have it bad? If yes, give us some examples.

Inventorying my soap, blades and scents and calculating how many; weeks ,days ,months and years supply I have. Then I worry a new world war will freeze importation of same and remaining stocks will dry up faster than spare tires and petrol on December 8th 1941.
No matter if my monthly food budget is in crisis, Pyewacket the cat has only 14 cans of food for 16 days and half a box of litter.NOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I ponder how I can finance enough blades to last for a span of years probably not reached.

Do you have it bad?

Does the 3 pass count if it is once a week?

-You have it bad when your wife sprays on a little perfume and you wonder how good that would be if there was a little menthol added.

-You've won so many PIF's that the Postman knows you by first name.

-You sniff your shaving brush before bed just so you'll have pleasant dreams.

I actually created one. I use it to keep track of my sampling endeavors.

But stropping steak knives at the dinner table... I haven't got THAT bad yet!

Nope, then you'll have to use "clippers."

* Excellent, Aaron! Personally, I sniff my soaps, all the time, caress my brushes and palm-lather when I get bored. Blush

You know you have it bad as a shave geek when:

-when you know more uses for alum and witch hazel than your local pharmacist.

-when you intentionally miss your last pass to have enough stubble the next day to try out that new razor.

- When the whole point of taking a hot shower ceases to be about cleansing and becomes about beard prep.

-you thought that the term "pole dancing" meant shaving with a Merkur 38C.

-You have a will for your razors after you've passed on.

When your Thursday evening shave is held at two quick passes, to be sure you have a good beard for that slow, leisurely, pampered Friday Night Shave. Then on Friday, after work you sit in your easy chair, relaxing with 'The Nook' on the iPad, anticipating that first 'Weekend Shave'.

Sheesh, barely a month in, and I've already got it, bad!

You know you have it bad as a shave geek when:

-You think that a Wee Scot and a Chubby Super are action heroes.
-You give your workaholic office competition a tube of Proraso Sandalwood...wrapped together with a toothbrush.
-You describe the woman you love as having good backbone and soft tips.
-You actually are surprised that Mantic never pursued a movie career.
-Your preferred method of revenge is to send someone a 2011 R41 with Dorco blades, and to remind them to apply a manly amount of pressure.

Great thread!

When, and this is for real, you routinely bowl lather just for the hell of it at least twice a night while watching t.v. in the bedroom with your wife......
