When I was a boy the sight of a fully grown man with a big bushy beard intimidated me. Perhaps because the men I knew with those large growths on their faces were often grumpy teachers or relatives whom I did not like. In the past I have had a crack with my own facial hair, sometimes a good look, other times, well, let’s just forget about them all together.
Recently I took to not shaving over a few days. Those few days then advanced into a few weeks and before long I had what one could call a proper tasty beard!
Growing this monstrosity upon my face has been a most intriguing process and delivered what many seem to think is a good result. Friends, work colleagues and clients are all enjoying the beard thus far. Hell, even I’m enjoying it more than I expected. It’s been a jolly good amount of fun so far and it may very well stick around for a while yet. Either way this beard growing caper has brought a smile to not only mine but the faces of others and well.
Growing a beard? I’d advise you all, erm, men that is to give it a shot at some point.
