The Magic Razor
on October 26, 2010
Once upon a time in the Midwest, a rough-bearded man with a sensitive face bought a pack of disposable razors. The razors were ordinary razors, from Gillette. Those razors don't come into this tale. But attached to the outside of the pack of ordinary razors was one special razor, a sample of another razor model. This is its story.
At first, the special razor lay in the bathroom drawer, watching as ordinary razors were used and thrown away, used and thrown away. It was a lonely existence as the only one of its kind. No bright colors or fancy features made this razor stand out from the crowd. Razors came and razors went as the tough-bearded man shaved his sensitive face.
Then one day it was the special razor's turn.
The first shave was fine, a nice close shave that didn't sting that sensitive face. It might even have ended that day, if the rough-bearded man had thrown the special razor in the trash. But he didn't, for he was frugal too.
The second shave was fine as well.
And the third. Unusual, thought the rough-bearded man.
But the fourth time he shaved his sensitive face with the special razor is when he began to suspect that this razor was special, indeed. What razor stays sharp for four shaves? And a disposable too! The man felt his smooth skin and wondered if it could be. He set the razor aside just in case, on the slimmest hopes there could be another smooth shave. How wonderful, how magical that would be!
The next day came, as they always do. And the rough-bearded man lifted the special razor to his sensitive face. And shaved.
No pulling! No stinging! A smooth and silky shave! It was all true. Then the rough-bearded man knew that this was not merely a special razor. Nay, this was indeed -- a Magic Razor!
He asked the razor its name. The razor said, "Gillette Custom Plus 3 Sensitive".
The rough-bearded man with the sensitive face smiled a wide smile with his smooth skin. Some say the razor smiled too.
