Of facebook and facial hair

Yesterday was a day of mixed emotions for me.

While my friend MC was reappearing after 2 years of silence, my friend Don J was disappearing under the beard he grew during the holidays.

huzzah for beards! there is no finer facial adornment for a man. congratulations to Don J, may he waer his masculinity with pride and tickle many women.

Rosie said...

wear, rather.

he shouldn't waer it. that sounds dangerous.

I used to think I hated facial hair on a man, until I met my lovely b/f and was converted to the whole idea. A beard, if carefully managed and maintained, is really cute and sexy.

Sounds like a rite of passage for Don J.

I almost disappeared under my lengthy beard when I was a teenager going through my John Lennon hippie phase. Then I decided it was far too masculine (I've always recoiled from masculinity as you know) and I've never had a beard since. One of the few things that pleased my father who had always referred disparagingly to my "whiskers".

Rosie and Hullaballoo: Unfortunately his beard turned out to be too itchy for Don J so he shaved it off.

Nick: I had the John Lennon period too, but it had more to do with long hair and round glasses. My dad hated every minute of it.

Crescenet: You're my first spam. Fuck off.
