Over the last few days, I have been informed by several nurses and others in the know, via comments and one hilariously subject-lined email, that the reason my pubes were shaved symmetrically during my surgeries was not because some benevolent razor-handler was worried about my genitals’ well-being, but instead because it’s easier to shave both sides before starting, in case the a-line needs to be switched from one leg to the other mid-procedure.
I know. The world seems a whole lot less magical to me too.
Anyway, this is probably the last I’ll take about my pubic region for a while. I hope everyone’s OK with that.
