The Power of Shaving

The (actual, I swear, true) conversation the boy and I have this morning:

Boy: What are you doing, daddy?
Me: I'm shaving.
Boy: Can I see the cream cheese can, please?
Me: You mean the shaving cream can? Sure.
Boy: Why are you doing that, daddy?
Me: My face gets scruffy. When you get older, hair will grow out of your face, too, and then you'll have to shave.
Boy: [with a big grin] Then I'll get everything I want.

Ah, if only that were true.

Maybe we have it all wrong, we should be using the cream cheese and then we will get everything we want!
