Being absent my shaving supplies, antiperspirant, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc I went for a little shopping trip the next morning. "Dollar shave club". That's what I thought when I held the cheap, dangerous razor in my hand. They actually have a dollar shave club. I can buy and use a razor that only costs a dollar.... The good news is that if there is a second Passover room 217 at the Super 8 in Greenfield, IN has blood on the door posts, the mirror, the sink, the carpet, the towels..... What was I thinking? I fell for a cheap substitute and instead of shaving my head I looked like I'd survived a fight with porcupine using pine cone nun-chucks.
The cheap substitute. We are vulnerable to it all the time. Sex does not equal love. An affair is still adultery. Gossip is still gossip and not helpful information. Revenge is not justice and holding a grudge is failure to forgive. Not telling the whole truth is still lying. Rebellion, regardless of the reason, is the opposite of submission. Selfishness is wrong no matter what we convince ourselves we "deserve". "Just one time" is still ONE time and you've crossed a previously uncrossed line.
Regardless of how good it sounds or how popular they make it seem. A dollar razor still costs a dollar and it's worth a dollar and it shaves like shaving with something that is worth a dollar. When we fall for the cheap substitute we end up with a bloody mess and scars long after the cheap decision has been made.
