Don't ever accuse me of not being honest here at Beit Carr. I allow you insider info about my life that you're not going to get anywhere else. Face it: this is the Entertainment Tonight of what's going on in my life, so you gotta love it. I miss John Tesh. A few weeks ago I was stroking my ever growing soul patch ["your what?"] and decided it was finally time for a change. I lamented my concern about my facial hair a few months ago, whether or not it was still relevant, yet I was still leery of doing anything about it.
Here it is: the stubble beard
I know, I know, I'm about fifteen years too late on this fad. Exhibit A:
But, nevertheless, I'm committed. Here's why I'm still going for it:
1) Back when it was cool I was a freshman in high school, unable to grow the necessary hair for the look. Now that I'm able, I'm going to rock it for what it's worth.
2) Now that I've gone for the shaven head look, I can keep my hair will be the same length all the way around my head. Who doesn't like uniformity?
3) The most alluring reason I can find: I'll only have to shave every few days. I've always hated shaving, and now I won't have to. It's incredibly liberating, hence, "Freedom. I won't let you down."
The only time I've ever tried the beard was when I was Jesus in the church Easter Pageant [Haven't heard that one? I'll fill you in later]. It was constantly itchy, but it was a rather thick beard. I think if I maintain the stubble level, I should be just fine.
As a wise man once said, "You put the boom-boom into my heart. You send my soul sky high when your lovin; starts." So let it be written, so let it be done.
