Something to aspire to

In my mission, the Powers That Be warned us not to ask for a shave at the barbershop. We could never figure out why — until one day, one of the elders asked for a shave.

It was a great experience, he said. They wrapped his face with hot towels, lathered him up, and carefully shaved him with an old fashioned razor blade. His face was smoooooth.

Until about two days later, when his entire face broke out into a rash, with acne popping up all over. His young face was too tender, and was super irritated by the closeness of the shave.

It was a little disappointing that the deep, dark mystery surrounding the forbidden shave was for no other purpose than to protect our little baby faces!
