As many of you know, I have been undergoing a little chemo for my Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Such trials in life cause one to reassess their relationships, what is important, etc. In that vein, I have made what I think may be a momentous decision. I have been a member of Dollar Shave Club for a couple of years. For $3 every other month, I never want for a razor blade. I have changed this relationship. Why? Why, after being a loyal and in fact raving fan of DSC would I change?? And the answer my friends is thus: I am bald. I have lost hair everywhere.
Now I know what you're thinking: Stam's dumping DSC!! No, just the opposite. I have this morning stepped up from the Humble Twin to the 4 blade razor!! That's right, the noggin needs to be smoooooth. And the only way to ensure that: more blades.
Which reminds me of a case of life imitating The Onion. Several years ago, your nationwide razor brands, before there even was a DSC, came out with the 3 blade razor for some reason, when two seemed like it was good enough for us for the prior 35 years. The Onion, anticipating where this was all going, came out with a story entitled: "F**k it!! Were going for five!!!" A couple of years later the 5 blade razor came out. At like $5 per cartridge. And DSC was born.
