Daddy, Why Does Your Junk Look Different?August 6, 2008
While I’m not a nudist, I do sleep nekkid, and in the mornings prior to hopping in the shower I wander the house au naturel for some few minutes. This was never a problem prior to the arrival of the LBC, but now that she’s here, it’s raising an interesting issue.
I’m far too lazy to maintain an active “grooming” schedule with regard to my pubic hair. I don’t really pay enough attention to it, and left to its own devices, it’s a little like a caricature of Howard Stern, or perhaps the Congo before deforestation.
Once a year, however, I’ll attack the problem with vigor, clearing out the mess & leaving me shorn & itchy as a lamb. This isn’t usually an issue, as the missus is the only one to see my goods these days, and after a brief exclamation of “Jesus what happened to your crotch!?!” we’re all on the same page.
But I’m honestly a little terrified to make a drastic change down there now that my daughter’s wandering around. I don’t like to think of her & my penis in the same day, let alone the same sentence, which is tough because I think of my penis pretty much all the time. Couldn’t stop if I tried. But I super extra special don’t want to think about my daughter being confused that my penis looks radically different.
I can go one of two ways with this: Option 1, ignore the issue and let my junk slowly get swallowed up by the encroaching forest of curly doom. Or Option 2, trim in tiny, tiny amounts, so that the change happens so slowly no one notices, especially no one under the age of 3.
I’m not sure which option will win out, but I know you guys are probably pretty fascinated with this whole decision process, so I’ll be sure to post follow ups when I reach a conclusion.
