On men, that is. If I ever have facial hair, that might warrant a blog post all its own!
This somewhat random topic comes to us courtesy of our friend Jeff, whom we had the pleasure of having over for dinner tonight. Jeff does not have an active blog, but he ought to, and as an attempt to lure him into the blogosphere, I will give this little linky shout-out to his thoughts on beards on his badly neglected MySpace blog. (Hey, maybe we should call it He Says, She Says, Jeff Says Saturday this week… our first guest speaker!) Jeff’s beard looks like this, incidentally, or at least it did two years ago. I don’t think it is much different now, but I am not a facial hair expert, as you are about to find out.
This is, to my knowledge, the most facial hair my husband has ever had:
He stopped shaving when he left his job in Scotland and didn’t shave again until his first interview in America. I think it was basically just an experiment to see if he could grow a beard. It was a fun experiment, but I can’t say I was sad to see it go. I don’t mind the look of a nicely trimmed beard (Orlando as opposed to bearded Jack) but I don’t want it on my husby. They’re just no fun to cuddle. I didn’t mind Trevor’s beard when he had it, but I am not a huge fan of the stubbliness it took to get there (or, indeed, of the stubbliness that always seems to accumulate between shaves for him.) I guess I just like his face too much to see (or feel) it obscured in any way.
Hopefully he will have something more interesting to say on the topic than I did sometime in the near future, but in the meantime, I have an important task for you, my faithful and devoted readers: Please, oh please, fill up my comment box with some ideas for what on earth we can blog about on Saturdays! We had intended this to be a much more… well, interesting endeavor than it has been, and we seem to have fallen into a rut of writing about whatever we happen to be up to on that particular weekend. I know we can do better. So, unless you want to read drivel like this again next weekend, get thinking! (Hey, at least you got some nice pictures today, right?)
