    That's ok - pubic lice are not the same as the ones we see as school nurses.

    True that, but could not stop thinking about them while reading this thread. Nature of my job!

    The topic actually came up because as I was walking into my sex ed class yesterday, a few students were talking about head lice, which I also set them straight about (lice do not jump, kids!). So when we got to crabs in the STI lesson...

    Happy Friday

    Are you indicating waxing is for any other reason?
    Yeah . . . but think it makes a woman look prepubescent, not "eye candy-ish" however that's another story.

    Spidey's Mom is dying right now.
    Nope - remember, I'm the mom who brought a poster home from Public Health with close-up views of STD's (STI's) so my 3 teenager kids could see some real consequences of making the wrong choices.

    I'm very blunt with my children. Can't scare me!!

    Well, since you used "that" description I had to go rinse my mouth out with soap; antibacterial, foaming, kills 99.99% of germs. I was thinking...never mind what I was thinking. I'm going to borrow Far's bag

    Why is it that the head lice looks like it's giving 4 thumbs up, but the "public" lice is only giving 2 thumbs up? Shouldn't it be the other way around??

    ^HA!!!

    I actually disagree with ya, Spidey's Mom. It would take a lot more than a bare hoo-ha to make me look prepubescent. That is another story, doe, you are right, and not at all School Nursey.

    Gimme my bag back, OldDude.
