Alright blog readers. I’m in need of a change. The type of change I’m talking about will change my life, the way people look at me, the way people think about me, the way that people judge me for the first time.
I value each and every one of you, so please give me your honest and open input, even you lurkers (mom & Jay).
I need a new beard/hair configuration.
I’ve had this present look for my entire marriage (11 1/2 years), and my upper lip has been covered since 1987. I grew the mustache as a bet with my best friend Dan and fellow Huskie Band tubaist Andy. I lost the bet. They both have a “chia-face” and can grow a beard over-night, but I win the award for longevity.
Here are the options as I see them…..
– Leave it the way it is.
– Completely clean shaven (pretty nervous about this one. I have a picture from my freshman year in college stuck in my head)
– Just leave the mustache (nope – too porny)
– Full beard (nope – can’t grow one)
– Just leave the bottom lip (soul-patch)
– Just leave the chin – (the scott hodge look)
– Leave the chin & add time (the crowder).
I would also be interested in a new “hair style” other than my conservative band geek look. Los told me a couple of months ago that I should just shave it. I’m not sure it would be a good look for me, since my my dome looks like it has been combed by a garden rake. It also seems like quite a bit more effort to shave it every couple of days, versus the quick shampoo that it currently needs. Any thoughts from you bald guys?
I did the mullet thing in the late 80s. I thought I had better friends than that, but they let me do it anyway.
If any of you are photo shop geeks, feel free to photo shop my above picture to the above descriptions, and I’ll post them in a later blog for a “test” run prior to the change.
I’m serious about this. Check in and let me know what you think.
