    Default If You're Stupid and You Know It...

    ....I was in such a hurry to shave tonight I hung up the strop AND FORGOT TO STROP THE RAZOR.

    I thought she was getting a bit "draggy!" Oh my gosh, I'm such an idiot!

    Still, razor did what I wanted it to and although I need to make a second pass tomorrow and knock out the newly-forming mustache, it doesn't look too bad.

    Anyone else forget to strop?

    I have forgotten to strop before but I strop before and after so it was still just fine. I can't say I noticed any difference. Guess I just had too many things on my mind at the time.
    It's just Sharpening, right?

    Can't say I have forgot...I have been unable to remember so I have probably RE-stropped a couple of razors.

    I have to get all my shaving stuff from the bedroom so it is difficult to overlook stropping.

    Better one you forgot to strop than forgot to hone.

    At least you recognized what it was and hung it up...Two out of three isn't passing, but not terrible. I suggest deep, cleansing breaths...

    OMGosh! How did you hurt your finger so badly?

    *Once I turned a big toenail inside out. That was very painful and required an ER visit. I never wore flip flops again after that.

    I do find humor takes the edge off so when I was being signed in I told the two secretaries "I didn't know where to go, here or the nail salon." That earned a few laughs.

    I have never forgotten to stop but this thread title was made for me.
    I have sneezed while trying to shave,
    Rushed trying to finish quickly,
    daydreamed while shaving,
    Thought I was much better at shaving that I actually am (kinda goes with the daydreaming)
    etc. etc...

    I have not yet forgotten to strop, but I am left wondering what it says about me that the first thread I'd open while visiting the forum is called "If You're Stupid and You Know It..."
