In my younger days things were a lot different. To look the super cool dude and make the transformation from a slob to that was only a half an hour sojourn. To get ready for a night out in the town all I needed to do was to take a shower, get a shave, a splash of aftershave, some deodorant, nice fitting clothes, perfect for the night out, and then run my comb through my hair with some bryl cream.
However the real problem was not in that half an hour, in as much as getting those half an hour of time to use the bathroom at a stretch. The reason was that my sister would be occupying the bathroom for nearly 2-3 three hours at a stretch doing what women do, trying everything possible to look perfect for her night out in the town. She would be toiling her way shaving, plucking and the best of all applying her war paint all over her face along with all other routines that women normally do before leaving home. Afterwards these 2-3 hours of toiling she would spend another 1-2 hours selecting from her closet what to wear, along with what accessories she would be wearing with that.
Women always seemed to have a lot more attention to their looks and aware of their appearance in public then men would do in those days.
Things have changed dramatically these days though, with men having become just as aware and conscious about their appearance in public. If my sister and I would have been going out in the town at the same time, we would have had a great fight just to be able to use the bathroom. Men are today willing to spend the time to look their absolute best when going out.
