Getting My Chest Done
sahibtorun

So I got my chest done for Valentine’s Day
 1
And I’ve gotten a lot of questions about it
 2
  Like
 3
   Is it painful?
 4
    What is it like?
 5
     People seemed to be very curious about it
 6
      So I tell them that
 7
       My beautician uses two types of wax
 8
        A Pink wax and
 9
         A Blue wax
 10
          The pink one
 11
           Is mainly for
 12
            The more sensitive areas
 13
             You know
 14
              Like the nipples
 15
               The belly button
 16
                The
 17
                 errm errm
 18
                  Down there
 19
                   It’s also does a cleaner job
 20
                    But I don’t like it though
 21
                     It’s a little thicker
 22
                      When it spreads
 23
                       It tugs on some hairs
 24
                        It’s like spreading
 25
                         Cold Nutella on white bread
 26
                          Pulling on every fiber
 27
                           And you just might end up
 28
                            Tearing something
 29
                            
 30
                             I’m sorry
 31
                              I hope I’m
 32
                               Not making you uncomfortable
 33
                                
 34
                                I prefer the Blue one though
 35
                                 It’s a bit more fluid
 36
                                  It spreads much easier
 37
                                   And the muslin is much more
 38
                                    Easier to rip off
 39
                                     But the problem with the blue one is
 40
                                      You also might have to do
 41
                                       An area more than once
 42
                                        So it kinds of
 43
                                         Prolongs your misery
 44
 
 
When People ask me
 45
Does it really hurt?
 46
  I go
 47
   errrm
 48
    I guess
 49
     It’s just a little uncomfortable
 50
    
 51
      When people ask me
 52
       Why do I do it?
 53
        I go
 54
         Well you know
 55
          The guys nowadays
 56
           They prefer
 57
            Someone that is not so hairy
 58
             Anyways I don’t mind changing myself
 59
            
 60
              But I think
 61
               What they really want to know is
 62
                Should they get their own chest done?
 63
                 So when people ask me
 64
                  Should they get their chest done?
 65
                   I ask them
 66
                    Do you want to fight Ideology
 67
                     Pink wax or Blue wax
 68
                      The Pink one is for
 69
                       The more sensitive areas
 70
                        It does a cleaner job
 71
                         But much much more painful
 72
                          The Blue one is less painful,
 73
                           But you have to rip the muslin off
 74
                            So many times
 75
                             That your skin will not
 76
                              Remember its own color any more
 77
                               I have tried to rip my culture form my chest
 78
                                The labels from my belly button
 79
                                 Your diversity quota from my bum hole
 80
                                  But everything seems to grow back
 81
                                   Thicker
 82
                                    Stronger
 83
                                     And rooted much much more deeper
 84
                                      I’m sorry but
 85
                                       This pain is
 86
                                        A little more than just uncomfortable
 87
                                         So if you ask me
 88
                                          Should you wax your own chest?
 89
                                           I would tell you
 90
                                            It is much much easier
 91
                                             To wax yourself clean
 92
                                              Then to wax the privilege
 93
                                               Off from someone else’s ass
