Razor Sharp

I cut myself shaving. And I knew it'd happened the second it happened. It stings when you do it, then it KILLS when the water hits it. What is that all about? I haven't cut myself shaving in YEARS.(do i need to clarify that I was shaving my legs? have any of you doubt about my gender?) So you do know what this means? It means that come wedding day, (Friday, the 24th, in case you were wondering) I will have a scab. Now anyone, especially females, know that shaving over a scab is no easy task. You can man up and shave it off, creating another blood bath, or you "play it safe" and try to "shave around it." "Shaving around it" invariably means you miss some hair. Who wants to have some hairy legs when they get married? I mean, besides you guys? NOT I! (has anyone ever cut themselves while shaving your pit? I just wonder.)
So will I have a scab on my wedding day, or a band-aid?
I haven't decided yet.
I'd prefer neither.
Damned nerves.

I'm a little confused...isn't your dress long? If so, no one is going to see your scab except for hubby, who trust me, will not be looking at your scab later that night ;)

It's the big day - I hope it goes fantastically for you, band-aid/scab and all! ;-)

Super-glue it! No, it's not crazy, it's been used for that since the Vietnam war: http://web.mit.edu/invent/iow/coover.html

It seals skin completely so it's sterile and is completely non-toxic; I always carry it in my first-aid kit. Clean the wound and superglue it and it won't be visible from more than 3 feet away.

Hmm, it called me "anonymous". That's creepy. Here's not-anonymous :)

I cut myself on the armpit once when I was a teenager. Then I put a band-aid on it. Not a good idea.
