This weekend saw another one of my birthdays arrive. I got to hear my Mom talk about the day I was born, what the weather was like, what the Doctor said, and how proud my dad was. My wife has been very patient with my popping into Merz for a few things, ordering items online here and there, and even expanding my space on the vanity counter with all my shaving things. Well she really hit a homer for my birthday this year- ordering some Xpec and an ATT S2 OC head for my gift! Of course she sits wisely quiet and soaks in the chats with our son when we get together, but I never thought she paid that much attention. Thank goodness for those "Mom Ears." She's the best!

BTW, the S2 was fantastic-believe it or not I found it to be more aggressive than the S1 head. And the Xpec was really really good. All in all a spectacular birthday!

Happy belated birthday.  My wife has bought me a few shaving things over the years but mostly she just smiles when she sees another box from BullGoose arrive then ask, where's my pen or flashlight.

Johnny,
Wish mine was even half as observant. She sees everything that comes in as adding to the clutter and something she is going to have to deal with when I am gone.

Cool wife but, I have to say- I like my wife's acceptance of the razor / gentleman lifestyle without too much intrusion lol!

Nice.  Exceptionally great gifts. 

My wife likes my old-school shaving bent, because she dislikes facial hair and she sees that I get better shaves with DE.  I don't think she would ever even think about buying me something like an S2 or XPEC, though.

I don't get a specific present I want unless I write it down or order it myself... But at least she makes me soap. Rolleyes

That's great, Brian. On the other hand the only thing my wife can make are reservations. She's really giving cooking a spin the last year, and I gotta say she's doing well there now

Congratulations on your birthday and your wife.  My wife is similar in that she is the one who suggests we drop by Pasteur Pharmacy.
