Remembrance of Novembeards Past
I haven’t participated in Novembeard since 2009 because I don’t care enough about preventing prostate cancer to be that itchy for than long. In the HCB/DME household, if I go more than a few days without trimming my facial hair, HCB will start to refuse me kisses by shaking his head and saying, “There are animals living in there.” And there might well be. Small herbivores grazing gently but persistently until I’m driven wild by their nibbling. In fact, back in 2009, I didn’t even make it the full 4 weeks. I shaved the day before Thanksgiving, Nov 24th, because I was literally starting to rave about the animals, THE ANIMALS.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that BEARDS ARE HELLA ITCHY, YOU GUYS.
However, just because I won’t do it again, doesn’t mean I can’t help the Novembeard cause, especially since I have recently discovered in the archives a cache of photos depicting the shearing process. Here, presented without comment, is my Novembeard:
Did anyone think the whole “without comment” thing was actually going to happen?
