A Very Cute Story

While visiting one of my favorite blogs I read this really cute post and had to share it here.
A successful man reached retirement age and was happy to have time for all the things he enjoyed. On the first morning of his retirement he got up and walked into the bathroom and looked in the mirror. He realized, as he picked up his razor, he had never liked to shave. "Now that I'm retired I think I'll let someone else shave me. That will be my one indulgence."
So he went to the local barber shop and ask for a shave. The barber told him that his wife did the shaving. "Grace", the barber said, "this man wants a shave."The man sat down and relaxed while Grace performed her magic. When she was finished the man asked the cost. "Twenty dollars," she said. He thought that was little high but it was the closest shave he had ever had. He assured her he would be back.
The next morning when he got up he went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror. He could not believe his eyes. His face was as smooth as it was the day before. It was unbelievable. This went on for several days. "I've got to find out what Grace's secret is. She must have some some special razor or shaving cream."
He went back to the barber shop and went straight to Grace. "Grace, I've got to know your secret. My face is as smooth today as it was a week ago. How is this possible?"
She smiled and answered, "The answer is simple. Once you have been shaved by Grace you never need shaving again"!!!!!!!!!!
