Stubble Trouble

This is the story of my boyfriend. To preserve his privacy (I doubt we can do that now :-P ), let's call him HairyHunk. HairyHunk was a very jolly man. He would hum as he went about his work through the day. He was quite a hardworking fellow! He would stay till late at work and grab quite a lot of awards for his intelligence. He was also a fine cook! He would whip up pancakes and pakoras with ease. He was quite the go-to person for his friends, and they always crashed at his place to recover from hangovers and breakups. His talents knew no bounds - he could paint like Picasso, sing like Stevie Wonder, and dance like Deva (Prabhu Deva). But his girlfriend was still not impressed.

HairyHunk wondered where he went wrong. He would sing mellifluous melodies, dance her to dinners, and bake her delicious delicacies. But his girlfriend wouldn't budge. And then, one fine day, when we was checking himself in the mirror, he admired his manly beard and smoothened his maharaja-moustache. He remembered suddenly that his girlfriend had once mentioned - "Oww! Your pointy beard! It's pricking my soft cheeks." HairyHunk then thought, 

"Oh! So, that is why she never kisses me,
But licks the curry off her dish;
She twirls to Latin music,
But gives my face a miss.

She adores all of my paintings,
But never puts her hand on my cheeks;
She taps her feet to my music,
But hasn't stayed over for weeks!

As HairyHunk stood there admiring his facial hair one last time, he decided it was time to bite the bullet and took his shaving foam out. He squirted some on his shaving brush and lathered it on his chin.

He took out his shiny new razor -
Gillette Mach 3,
And got down to business till
His face was hair-free.

He patted some aftershave lotion
After he had rinsed his face.
He looked at his reflection in wonder -
He now had so much more grace!

HairyHunk was hairy no more,
But only a hunk from now!
He took his girlfriend on a date,
And all she said was "WOW!!!"

She immediately grabbed him by the face
And smooched him in the lift.
He could not contain his joy further.
He had finally received his gift!
