A Drabble From a Rabble - Four

Today's drabble is from the theme 'Beauty' and was partially inspired by a line from The Power of Love. See if you can guess which one.

Bloody Pain

 The thing about pursuing beauty is that nobody ever warns you about how annoying it is.

 Oh, they’ll be all ‘beauty is pain’, but never, ‘beauty is a pain in the neck’.

 Take leg shaving.

 You’re judged as a woman if you don’t shave your legs, but they never tell you to keep garlic in your bathroom.

 Every time I shave my legs it’s like a lake of blood was just waiting to get out.

 I may as well get a funnel and bottle it to sell to the vampires outside my window. It would pay for all the plasters.
