    Cut Me

    I'm not as good as I once was when it comes to shaving.  Not only when I shave, there's plenty of hair still on my body and I also unitentionally cut myself.  When the water runs on it, it burns.

    Don't Try This

    Never drink orange juice after you cut yourself in your upper lip!!! Trust me, it's not worth it.
