A couple of weekends ago I came in from a 14 hour day. I was very tired and decided to shave before I went to bed. I wanted to try this RR Mission head out that I just received on a trade on my SixShooter AR handle. At some point into the shave I thought to myself this RR Mission head isn't performing at all. I switched to my Maggard version 2 head to finish the job. In the process I nicked myself for the first time. The shave turned BLOODY! The next day I saw that on the RR Mission head I had the base plate upside down. Moral of this story is, NEVER wet shave TIRED![Image: dvv9lSk.jpg]

I would imagine that a straight would be worse while tired.

There have been days I've shaven after work and not in the morning... tired shaving is not as fun and enjoyable.

I do not shave if I am very tired or very sick. With me it takes discipline, because I love shaving and look forward to it at the end of the day. But I have learned the hard way that anticipation is much better than a tired or sick shave.

When I pull a 60 or 70 hour week I just let my beard grow. However when ever the wife refuses to kiss me for fear of my stubble ripping her flesh off  I'll pull out the electric trimmer. For years I kept an electric razor in my car lol to shave on the way to work. I know I know but it's better than having cuts all over you or worse than that getting to work and then feeling where you missed a spot so you haft to hold your head a certain way and hope others don't see it.

I get sometimes from my daughter and fiancée that my face is POKALEY! it's definitely time to shave then.

I'll remember next time I'm sick. I can't say that I use to enjoy shaving but I do now.

I've done it and it actually refreshes my mind. I love shaving whether I am tired or not.
It's just very relaxing and fun.

I have never had much of a problem as I seem to be wide-awake before my shaves as I still get quite excited about them even after almost four years of doing this, every day!  Biggrin
