Indulgence day.

Shaving should always be a pleasant unhurried ritual. But even in retirement there's always something ahead that makes you want to get cracking as soon as possible. Not today. Time to have a good look through the stash. Perhaps I'll boil up some hot water and really get the best out of the scuttle. A preshave? Hot towel? An extra unhurried pass? Try a different razor? Different blade? Even time to work up a decent lather with MWF.

Shaving used to be so boring. But quick. I guess I've added at least 12 minutes to my daily ritual. Over, say 40 years, I make that an extra 2912 hours. Including travelling and time at the bar, that's about 580 rounds of golf.

I'm still thinking about that.
