    Default A Gift From Dearly Beloved

    Ladies and gentlemen:

    Today the dearly beloved gave me a gift.

    Whoa! what a gift.

    What was the occasion, you ask?

    No, it is not my birthday.

    Nor is it our anniversary.

    Then again, we've been together for 45 years and every day has been an anniversary.

    Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, /And men below, and saints above; /For love is heaven, and heaven is love
    (Sir Walter Scott)

    The dearly beloved gave me the gift of the double edge: the Pils.

    Regards,

    Obie

    Just hold on there a minute! You haven't used it yet have you? Intelligence sources report just one shave with that razor and it's radioactive steel will radiate you forever. Luckily for you I have official authorization to dispose of that razor so just send it my way. I have a lead lined case just waiting for it.

    Enjoy, Obie. I've heard nothing but great things about their performance. Of course, they're no straight razor, but hey...

    My dear thebigspendur:

    Yes, yes, of course. You are my shield, my protector, and the moment I detect a hint of radioactivity, I will dispatch the Pils for you to dispose of.

    Indeed, dearly beloved was a schoolmate of angels. I am grateful to her.

    Regards,

    Obie

    Congratulations on the 45 years Obie and on the wonderful gift. I hope you get many more years of shaving out of it with your beloved by your side.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
