Warrenizing – the beard

So it’s been 24 days since I started to make the change…from handsome clean-shaven upstanding citizen Warren to bearded, Jacob the werewolf-like (def Team Jacob in our house), Adonis Warren.  I can’t say that I really like the beard in most ways.  It itches and tickles my nose (if I were actually ticklish, but that’s soft) and catches food that I’d rather see fall to the floor.  It’s also 7 hairs grayer than it was last year.  I guess I do enjoy the fact that my morning preparation time has gone from  9 minutes to 7 though.  I am pretty sure that Emily brushes her teeth longer than it takes me to go from bed to out the door.

Some people just look better with a beard and some look better without.  I can’t decide which way I look more awesome.  I do know that when I am wrestling the kids, the beard is a great advantage though.  If the kids have me pinned down, I can always drag this beard across their skin and they leap back as if a big hairy rat brushed against them.  It’s a great weapon.  Seph is drawn to the beard too.  You may remember that Seph is the little orange kitten I found moments after being born.  I hand-nursed him back to health and now he is a regular (though not normal) cat.  But, you see, he never had a proper mom experience.  He was never properly weaned or any of that.  He still has issues with wanting to nurse on things…my beard included!  Yeah, I am not too much into that.  I’ll tell you though, it’s a sure way to make sure I wake up and get straight out of bed!

Well, regardless of how the Warrenizing of the beard goes, the most fun part comes when it is time to shave it all off…in sections.  Of course, I’ll have pictures of the event proving I have no dignity whatsoever!  Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. You are one crazy man Warren! lol I’d keep the beard until Spring. I can’t seem to get my husband to keep his much past a week. He does have a mustache though. I’ve never seen him without it! lol Don’t think he’ll ever shave that! lol

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Have you tried cream rinse for the itching?
    Evidently you don’t keep your beard too clean or the cat wouldn’t be sucking the leftovers out of it…….LOL
    At least Seph is trying to keep it clean.

  3. Totally Team Jacob over here too. Didn’t you used to be Team Edward?

    I just noticed the other day that Butch had grown back the goats. It comes and goes. I imagine he just shaves it off if the trimming goes awry.

    I need to go and see Seph’s blob, I forgot about that!

  4. Good luck on the cat. We had one of those that was weaned to early and nursed on things… clear through the day she died 19 years later! I got used to a pillow with a soggy corner on it.

  5. How did I miss this post?
    Anyway, Team Jacob?? I’m not sure we can still be friends. 🙂
    I still think you ought to keep the goatee look. Of course, if Seph sucks your chin, you’d have some ‘splainin’ to do at the office.
