Well, Phil is creating a painful "sock puppet" today. By that I mean he is getting a sticky, waxy stick stuck up his nose and in his ears to get rid of hair. He says there is a surprising amount to look forward to. It hurts me just to think about it, but I get the importance to Phil of doing it. I know that in many cases, pain is the price of beauty. I'd like to say it's only what is on the inside that counts, but I know that the reality is, looks matter. Studies have shown that to some extent looks matter on a genetic level, with people picking romantic partners from a criteria in their mind that they are not really even aware of. So I say, do whatever makes you feel better in terms of improving your looks, but if the people that care most about you say you have gone too far...pay attention, they are probably right.
