Merry Christmas, Mr. Babbers!

Mr. Babbers finished shaving himself. After he had cleansed the blade of his old razor on the towel strung across his wide shoulders, he put it away in a worn-out leather case.

He had never quite gotten used to the faster Lazor-Flash every grown man used all around the world; he always felt it took away from the intimate, manly pleasure of going over one’s stubble personally.

He put some lotion on his fingers, threw back his head and started rubbing his face and neck, enjoying the soothing effect the light massage had on him. When he was done, he cracked his neck back into place and stared at the face beyond the mirror.
