What A Beardo

I think I might grow a beard. There are, by my count, zero bad reason to do this. There are several great reasons. Here they are:

1. Summer is almost over, the temperature is dropping quickly, the leaves are changing color, and my face is getting colder. A beard solves that problem.

2. My look becomes very adaptable. I can go from ruggedly handsome, to sexy, to distinguished, to badass, to crazy in a matter of days.

3. If I'm lucky I can be considered a Man Beard.

4. November is National Beard Month. I celebrate all holidays (including this one), and it's going to take a while to grow a beard worthy of National Beard Month.

5. I didn't shave whilst at the beach this weekend therefore my beard blocked the bottom half of my face resulting I a some unattractive two-toned action.

I'm not sure how long this whole beard thing will last, but I'm guessing it will be until my face is all the same color.

Before you grow a rug on your face ask your lady friends what they think of beards.
Personally i loathe them. Bearded men and clowns freak the fuck outta me, and i know lots of my friends feel the same.
I'm sure there are chicks out there that dig it, but i haven't met any.

Having said that, you should do what you feel comfortable doing. If a beard is what you want, then go forth and grow one.
Just worried bout your sex life is all :P

Pro-beard women are probably pretty rare, but there are a few who REALLY like a good beard. Hoist the flag and they'll find you.

Steph brings up a great point, I do have my very active sex life to worry about. Fortunately if I grow a beard it will only be as a joke and won't last more than a week or two.

Sex life? Don't use the blog as a means to propagate lies.

I have been going a beard for just under 2 weeks and the best way I can describe it is this: awful and magnificent and the same time. As for my sex life, I have seen no change since growing it, but that's because... you know what nevermind.

Highlight of the post: working in the word whilst.

Also if I go 0-3 in my fall ball opener tonight my beard is the first thing that will go.

I think a well maintained beard looks great! But then again I am old and married, so what do I know.

Eric said...

And I'm sure Lucy knows how kick ass my beard would look too
