I need your help.
This is a picture of my husband and me, about 4 years ago. You’ll notice his goatee. He’s had some form of this for quite a while.
Recently, he’s been allowing it to grow. There was no discussion about this. I’m not sure I should have expected there to be discussion. It just started getting longer, as though it has a life of its own.
Really, I don’t have an opinion on the matter. I’m unbiased.
However he asked me recently if I think he should continue to allow it to grow. I explained that I’m unbiased. And then I made the point that just because something can be done, doesn’t mean it should be done. You know, just to point out a basic philosophical truth.
But last week, someone told my husband he looked like a rock star. A few days later, someone he had just met asked him if he was Amish, partially because of his beard.
Just so we’re all on the same page, that’s 1 for ‘rock star’, and 1 for ‘Amish guy’.
I believe he is uncertain as to his next direction on this matter: should the goat be trimmed or allowed to grow? I mentioned to him that perhaps my blogging friends could help, and he was horrified energized by the idea. So, I turn to you for help. See pics below.
So, my friends, speak out. Trim or grow? Rock star or Amish?
(And yes, this is exactly the kind of post that should break a blog-fast. Thoughts on our Mexico trip will follow soon.)
