To Beard Or Not To Beard

That was the question faced by me this morning. I had last shaved on Friday, 7th November and didn’t shave on Saturday before going to work. Then I fell sick and I didn’t shave at all. So when I went back to the office on Saturday, 15th Nov, I had a good growth on my face that people at work had never seen. My beard grows fairly swiftly, considering the fact that I have been shaving since the ripe young age of (wait for it) 15 and I’m 32 now!

Usually, twice a year I let my beard grow out for about a month before I take a visit to the barber and have a shave along with a haircut. I feel liberating at that point and I always look 5 years younger once I have that shave. When I was 21, I had stopped shaving for 30 days and then I had to have an operation, so I didn’t shave for another month while I recovered. When I finally had it shaved at the barber’s, I came out a new man or rather a young boy. I have also grown a goatee or French beard twice in my life – once when I was 19 almost 20 for about 2 months and then when I was 26 and living in Calicut for another 2 months. I love growing a goatee and people normally say that I look dashing with it.

So today I stood there under the shower and wondered what to do. Ultimately I decided that I don’t feel so good growing a beard while dressed in office formals, so I took my single blade razor (kept for days like these) and put it to good use. Felt like a million dollars as I splashed a generous dose of Old Spice on my face afterwards.

So ladies who read my blog; what do you like in a man? Use this for a comparison chart!

What surprises me is that I’m listening to the music of an artist who is just 2.5 months older than my dad! Well, Gordon’s music is timeless. Happy Birthday Gordon, thanks for the great songs.
