My premature love for shaving

When I was very young I had an abnormal attraction for shaving. I would sit beside if I found my father or grandfather shaving. I always used to ask them when I’ll be able to shave like them. They would always laugh and say, “When you’ll have beard.” So I waited many days for my beards to grow. But soon I realize it would take more time than I anticipated. So I finally decided to give it a try without beard and mustache.
By that time electric razor was still very unavailable in my locality. People used to shave manually with normal razor. It was very sharp and difficult to handle. One afternoon when everyone was busy, I managed to steal my grandfather’s shaving kits including the razor and ran to the pond. I was already an expert in shaving from watching others. So I covered my cheek with shaving foam and then drove the razor as others do.
At first I almost forgot everything in pain and then saw blood running down my cheek. My shirt almost turned red with blood. Luckily my uncle was going somewhere by that time and found me half faded by the pond. He quickly took me to a doctor who stopped the hemorrhage. But I carried the razor mark on my cheek for a long time. After that every time I stand in front of a mirror, I remind myself, Confidence is good but too much of it may put one in trouble.
