This is how I normally look (cheesy grin and all):
I’ve had a goatee for pretty close to 8 years now.
Then, last fall, I grew out the full beard for the Living Nativity:
I kept it for a while by request, and then it got close enough to the Passion Play that I needed to keep it, so I’ve had it for six months or so. I like that a full beard saves me time shaving in the morning, but I don’t really like how it looks on me. So, on Saturday night, when the Passion Play was done, I shaved it.
All of it:
I’ve been told it makes me look younger. I’ve been called “babyface.” I’ve been told I look like the “Can you hear me now?” guy. All I know is that I am furiously regrowing the goatee as fast as I can, and I’m tempted to use Chia seeds in the meantime.
Hair today, gone tomorrow
No more itchy face
