My Moustache May mention on Monday (alliterative, no?) made me realize that I hadn't blogged about my own husband's new facial hair. At some point in May, I noticed he looked a little unshaven. I asked if he was growing a mustache and he said, "Yeah, and a soul patch, too!"
He's been growing his hair longer for a while and I guess he had one too many drive-thru attendants call him "ma'am," so he decided that a mustache would help butch things up. Not that it should be necessary since he's 6'3" and broad-shouldered, but I what're you gonna do?
He's made pretty good progress with the facial hair - to the extent that my new favorite teasing nickname for him is "The Dread Pirate Roberts." He actually looks pretty cool, I must admit.
I think it must be kind of fun to be able to grow your own face topiary. The guitarist in my last band had his head shaved, but his facial hair was different almost every time we practiced. He'd have muttonchops one month, a fu manchu mustache the next and be clean-shaven the time after that. My frequent haircolor changes were nothing in comparison to that kind of variety.
What do you think of mustaches and beards? Like 'em? Hate 'em? Which Moustache May guy did you vote for?
