Women know a whole lot more about this topic than I, a mere man. I mean, women always seem to look so much more wholesome than we guys do most of the time.
But, it struck me yesterday as I was attending to one of the endless tasks that must be performed on oneself at regular intervals that an awful lot of time is consumed while taking care of personal hygiene and grooming.
Brushing of teeth
Trimming of excess hair on eyebrows, nose and ears
Hair trimming and styling
This is a partial list, to be sure. When I think of what women go through with their makeup and such I tremble at the thought.
And I haven't even addressed the labor associated with the cleaning and pressing of clothing. How do we even have time for anything else in life?
Excuse me now---gotta go brush my teeth.
