I did actually properly laugh out loud to this!

Or perhaps more of a chuckle, but definitely out loud.

I ... don't have quite this same dialogue with myself, but I do think that I don't really want to try to have bare hairy legs at work because it's, well, unprofessional. I have however now got to the advanced stage of hirsuiteness whereby I am happy to have hairy bare legs in a social or casual context (though whether I'd do that in a social context that involved my workmates I'm not so sure!).

In fact I took my socks off this afternoon cos I saw your sandals and short-ish haired legs and thought "solidarity sister!". And because of the warmth too, to be fair.

FWIW I think that prolonged non-shaving can have a brainwashing sort of effect whereby if you then shave your legs after a while of not doing it, you look down and think "eek! bald legs! yerk!" and you more or less rewire your brain a bit. Which you may or may not want to do, but it is what I've done over the years to at least some extent.

"solidarity sister!"

Yay! Solidarity! :-)

I confess I didn't even notice the hairiness or otherwise of your legs, which probably proves at least one of our points...? :-}

Ha, if I shave my legs after a while of not doing it, it's more like "ARGH ITCHY LEGS SCRATCH SCRATCH remind me not to do this again". Whereas the hair is only annoying when I wear tights & it gets stuck & pulls the hairs ow ow ow.
