bemusing musings of a bewildered brush-wielder

the conundrum of hirsuteness

So, this will probably be the shortest and most random post that I will ever write.  But I think it’s funny.

When I log on to my blog account, I can review loads of information as regards my blog.  And so, I can look into what is called “search engine terms.”  This feature allows me to see how people are searching on the internet and finding out about my blog.  When somebody goes onto Google and types “Courbet’s Atelier”, or “portrait painter New York”, or “Kevin McEvoy artist”, or something of the sort, my blog pops up on their screen.

And so, I read in my “search engine terms” that yesterday, somebody typed into their computer “How can I wax my entire body without using any wax?”  Then, they were directed to my blog, “Without Wax.”

I envision some hairy, weightlifting meathead in Venice Beach, California, who was about to head off to a bodybuilding competition in Las Vegas.  In the past, he had all of his hair removed by going down to the local salon, and having a burly Russian woman apply wax and tear the strips of hair off of his body.  It hurt so bad that he said to himself “I will never do this again.”  He sat down to his computer, but instead of finding a way to remove hair from his back, he instead found “Lilies of the Field.”

I don’t know why, but things like this make me laugh so hard.

    I was warned, but it made me guffaw, and warmed me up, because I’m not having anything to do with waxing in this weather.

    Did you find our if he would model? Do you do encaustics, is that the wax connection? It is a funny story.
