You may remember that I started growing a beard back on the first of November. It is a thing my Dad and/or brother started where beards are grown from November ’til sometime around Christmas and then are shaved. We went to my brother’s house a few weeks ago and for me, it was time to shave off that mangy thing…
When I came out of the bathroom with this look, Abigail honestly freaked and said, “You look like a maniac! Get away from me!” She acted as though she was truly a little freaked out by my appearance. She’s a smart kid…proved again!
Ok, so, as I look back over this, I think I might be pretty vain. I have to tell you though, I am so glad to be rid of the squirrel as Emily calls it. Some people look awesome in a beard but I don’t have their strength of character or whatever it is that they have to put up with it. I am once again clean shaven and shall remain so…at least until November!This entry was posted in Fun and tagged Beard by warren
Have you heard? It’s Novembeard! My brother has long been a supporter of the Novembeard concept. I think he got it from my Dad. Anyhow, I am a late comer but a true believer! I laid my razor down on Halloween and will not drag a blade across my face again until after Christmas.
In addition to being incredibly stylish, I suspect this will save both time and money. My morning “get ready for work” time will drop from 8 minutes to 6 and my water usage will decline in similar fashion. I can keep the heat turned down a degree or two lower and my beard will provide a habitat for small woodland animals. Novembeard is green!
Normally I wouldn’t even consider missing more than a day or two of shaving but for such a special time of year, I am prepared to do what it takes (and I am not even running for public office with that slogan…but I do approve this message) to propagate Novembeard as a national phenomenon. Ladies, gentlemen, children of all ages, please join me in skipping the morning shave and so we can take Novembeard from coast to coast!This entry was posted in Fun and tagged Beard, Fun by warren
