Razor’s edge

A random ramble about things that you cant find.

I’ve never done a post where I dictate it to my phone before so I’m going to give it a go. It’s a bit of a ramble but something I thought I would share. About a year and a half ago we started some renovations on the house and we packed everything into storage. Over the last year we have unpacked everything and we are pretty much now at a point where there may be a few boxes outstanding but everything is back in the house.

Apart from my razor that is.

I had a fabulous electric razor which I used because I’m just too tight to spend the fortune on razor blades which probably explains why more often than not I have a particularly large beard.

So all the boxes have been emptied yet my razor remains unfound and it has been driving me absolutely insane. In an attempt to find it I have mostly wondered around the house grumbling and complaining looking in the same places I’ve already looked into and finding nothing.

Today I went back down into the cellar and found a small suitcase I had forgotten about. The zipper was rusted closed so I needed to use a knife to open it and behold guess what I found inside.

No not the razor that would have been easy a story wouldn’t it. I found the charger for the Razor and obviously that sent me into a complete grump and I again had a look in all the same places I’ve been looking at for the last couple of months and guess what, it’s still wasn’t there.

And then it hit me, an epiphany , a moment of clarity as I sat on the edge of the bed.  I knew exactly where it was. A year ago I placed one of those things on the back of the door which has lots of pockets in it and into those pockets I placed all the wires and cables and connections that I collected over the years and trust me it is a substantial amount.  Seeing the charger triggered something and I knew straight away that it was there on the back of the door and I walked across to it and there it was. I even knew which pocket it was in and me, my razor and my charger are now Reunited.

I know it may not seem like a big thing but lordy the relief after searching for many months.  If I was a dog I would have wheeled around on the carpet dragging my bottom behind so elated was I.

***Note to self – find the carpet cleaner and lie to wife about the state of the  hall carpet.***

It is currently charging and once it has enough charge I am looking forward to giving my beard a jolly good trim and I might even give my head a shave which is something I’ve never done before but I mean how bad can it be right, lots of people cut their own hair I’m sure.

  1. Ha ha ha ha haaaa! Too funny. The ridiculous price of modern razors (5 blades??? Who the fuck needs 5 fucking blades? Who the fuck needs 4, even 3 fucking blades?) is the primary reason I wear a beard. More power to you, brother!

  2. I’ve lost things the same day I put them somewhere where I won’t forget where they are. I think I have to start making a diagram. Did you have to edit this post to clean it up or was it this precise wording from just speaking into the phone? If so, that’s amazing. It’s nearly Summer – go for the clean-shaven allover look.

  3. I think I had to make two changes but if I speak slowly and clearly enough then to actually works really well in fact all of the responses to these messages I’ve been done with voice and as long as I speak clearly and slowly it works and for me it’s so much easier than typing on the phone

  4. I follow a woman blogger from the UK who is almost totally blind and she uses something called “Narrator” – she now wrote that she has a book deal. Her posts run the gamut from insightful to hilarious – she writes of her guide dog, a Labradoodle called “Munch”. I know we have that Dragon software here, where you talk into it and words go onto the screen but it is not accurate if your voice is different due a cold for instance. Interesting that this works so well.
