Before this though, the longest I've gone without shaving is maybe 2 or 3 days. Now it has been about 3 weeks. It was kinda uncomfortable at first. Felt a little bit like shaving but w/o using aftershave. But now, it's to the point where it doesn't really bother me.
It was kinda fun for a while...to be doing something out of routine AND I thought to myself that doing this would be less work...because I wouldn't have to shave and all. But as I've had some time to think about it, I realize that in the long run there will actually be MORE work. I don't even know what goes into maintaining a beard/mustache. Also do you call the beard/mustache a beard? Is the term "beard" all inclusive of both beard and mustache? I don't know. But I will find out. (just checked beard on wikipedia. It was very informational and pretty funny. I recommend.)
To tell you the truth, I kinda want to shave it off.
...buuuuut I also want to keep it.
It's really a love/hate thing.
Here are a couple things that bothers me (mainly my mustache):
My mustache pokes my lip when I do certain things. Like touch it with my bottom lip. haha.
Also I can feel my mustache when I'm drinking water. Actually it's just that I can feel it on the rim of the cup. But still.
Plus I can get "stuff" caught in it...and it can stay there for a long time if I don't realize it's there. (Like Kleenex...I sneeze a lot.)
But the one thing that is kinda keeping me from shaving it is that Jesus had a beard. Right?!?! I mean in all the artistic renditions of Jesus he has a beard...and if I want to be more like Jesus...one thing I can do is try to grow a beard.
Plus my oldest girl kinda likes it...and I'll do anything for my girls.
Finally, for the faithful who read this blog from time to time...here is what we have so far:
|I'm smiling funny because I don't think I can smile regular with this on my face.|
I dunno...we'll see.
Thanks for reading...till next time.
