You’ll want to comb your hair and take a shower after listening to this episode about personal grooming. Slow dialog: 1:30 Explanation: 3:40 Fast dialog: 16:27 Giorgio: I’ll pick you up tonight at 7:00, okay? Anna: You’d better make it 8:00. I need time to get ready. Giorgio: You just need to go home, take a shower, and throw on some clothes. How much time do you need? Anna: You have no idea what a woman has to do to look her best, do you? Not only do I have to bathe, I need to exfoliate and depilate. Giorgio: “Depilate”?! What’s that? Anna: That’s shaving and waxing to you. I have to shave and wax my legs, my armpits, and bikini area. Giorgio: Whoa! That’s way too much information. I didn’t need to know that. Anna: After that, I’ll need my nail clippers, nail file, and tweezers to do my nails and my plucking.
