Ladies, if you want to know what growing a beard is like, imagine a furry animal on your face and then trying to spit hair every few minutes and hoping none of it gags you to death. Oh and that animal IS fun to pet – just watch out for eating. Things like peanut butter get messy. Soups too. If your hygiene is terrible you can carry the remains and reminders of several meals on your face for … about a day. I would IMAGINE. Fortunately I don’t like rotting food on my face ๐Ÿ˜‰
With all the negatives then, why do I grow and keep this hair on my face? It’s a change from the PAST ME. The clean shaven. I scare people now. Old man with a ragged beard. Often tired eyes. I know I looked much better clean shaven. This gives me a more empathetic perspective on the lives of others. I am amused at how so many look at me when I am out shopping. They will often shy away from me. There is a reward in the kindness of my smile, how seemingly shocked they are at that. Yes, behind the bush is someone much different than their assumptions ๐Ÿ˜‰
