My Black Santa Claus
Once upon a time I wrote about shaving bumps and the distress they caused Mr O. I never got around to the follow up, did I? Here is Mr O shaving the Nigerian way. Which was actually the Black American way before the method wandered over to Nigeria.
Looks just like shaving cream from where you are sitting, huh? No, Mr O is actually shaving as he stands there.
How is this possible you ask? Shhhhh – there is a surprise at the end…..
This is how.
No razors, just powder! There are a couple of downsides for the rest of us. Miss O 1′s description of the smell: “It stinks like shit!” Trust me, she is 100% CORRECT! Secondly, it bleaches anything it comes in contact with, like my nice powder blue flannel is now blue and white tie-dye.
As I was writing this, The Trouble Princess (Miss O 2) leaned over my shoulder and snapped a picture of the picture.
THIS is the result!
