What Is Yak Shaving?

What is yak shaving?

Let me explain with an example.

The other day I wanted to wash my car.

I went to my backyard and discovered that the garden hose was broken, so I started fixing it. While doing that I realized that my workbench was wobbling because one of the legs was unstable. So, I fixed the workbench.

Fast forward 6 hours later: I’m standing there with a shaving kit and a 4 foot tall yak covered in shaving cream.

My wife leans out the kitchen window and yells, “What the hell are you doing?”

To which I replied, “OBVIOUSLY I’M WASHING THE CAR, DAMN IT!”

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is yak shaving.
