Fair! I figured I’d mention that this is a possible route for others like me who balked at the process she goes through. She’s a better woman than I, half the time I can’t convince myself to shave once a week, let alone that routine every other day. More power to you!

Oooh, Monique, you should write a column on teaching the masses on how not to get dickmatized (shit, who am I kidding, that calls for a whole damn series).
