Not a bearded clam, a bearded Hoosierboy

I last sported facial hair back in my college days. I had a full beard, but no mustache -- Amish style. I kept it about a month or six weeks. I went a week or so a few years back and my wife bitched like you cannot imagine. I shaved it mostly because the itchy phase was tough.

I am now on day two of not shaving. I am thinking about growing a beard over the next few weeks, since I am on vacation. I am certain it will be very gray, if not white. It may make me look older.

Since I base my entire life on the opinions of others (sarcasm alert), what do you think? Grow the beard or shave? If I go with the beard I will post a pic.

Pretend you are a Democrat -- vote early and vote often.

Well, remember, you do have to live with your wife.

Of course, Sally won't let me shave mine off because she doesn't want to see my chipmunk cheeks...

So it's kind of a toss-up.

I've had one on & off forever. Nowadays I usually shave in the warmer weather because it drives me nuts with the motorcycle helmet on. I say try it and see.

why anyone would cultivate something on their face that grows wild around their butt-hole is beyond me!

Beard scruff doesn't bother Kelly and sometimes I'll go a few weeks without seeing a razor.

If you grow one - I will! Let the readers pic the best looking brother!

Joe said...

Otter -- you can grow one?

Otter said...

Oh....and what is this "bearded clam" you speak of?

sightinga bearded clam is very rare. I think I last saw a real live one back in the early 1990's.

I think that was an old educational television feature where they followed him bar-hopping in whatever port he was stuck in while doing his work: "Jacques Cousteau and his Nightly Search for the Bearded Clam."

It's winter: have a beard, it'll insulate the face somewhat from the stinging cold wind.

Do the beard. Color it with "Just For Men". Trust me. They sell a lot of it to people you see on a daily basis.

Well, if you like looking 10 years older than you actually are, go for the face fur.
I dabbled in cultivating a set of handlebars in my younger days because I wanted to look more mature, then looked in the mirror one day after shaving it off and found the goal had been accomplished without it...
Your mileage may vary.

I vote for the beard. I've had one since 1983 'cept for when I had to shave when I was in firefighting school. Then I only shaved once. Mine always has and still does grow slow. I even kept a goatee style while on the fire dept. Just kept it trimmed so's not to interfere with facemask seal.

Shave it, srry to against the grain, so to speak, but a pissed off wife who will use your last razor to shave her legs will leave you no choice. Women have a mean streak when it comes to razors.

Shave that damn thing. And get a job, hippie!

Terrorists tend to like beards.

That was my deep thought of the day.
