April 2022 Gentlemanly Restraint Until Month End (GRUME)


Girls call me Makaluod
My last shave in this GRUME.

Don't know if it was the razor, the soap or my technique, but it was one of the most enjoyable shaves I have had in a long time.

A great way to finish my last GRUME. Never again will I get involved with such a foolish group. This GRUME is going to cost me a fortune at midnight tonight when I clear my shopping carts.
