First post of the new year – WOOHOO!
Hope you had a Merry Chrismakwanzakkuh and a Happy New Year. Mine was fairly uneventful and low-key, which was nice. But that is really all I have to say about that because this post is dedicated to an entirely different subject.
A little less than a year ago, The Husband’s favorite hockey team, the Buffalo Sabres, made it to the playoffs. He and his friends decided not to shave until either the Stanley Cup Finals or the Sabres lost, whichever came first. This was high-class entertainment and I thought for sure it would end with the hockey season. And for all but one (not The Husband), it did. He is now going for the “Wolverine” look because I don’t think he has cut his hair since either. Anyway, so in the last few months, I have noticed a resurgence of beards. This has been especially noticable at my workplace. The beards are everywhere and I really don’t know what to think of it. I’m not saying that I dislike them per se, it is just the commonality of them. And it’s not neatly trimmed, goatee-esque beards. It is full-on, unkempt, Grizzly Adams-type beards. And then here come Dave Letterman and Conan O’Brien last night and they have beards. It’s just weird. Weird Beards. Gentlemen, help me out here. What is with the beards?? I don’t understand. It’s like an underground phenomenon. Is it because it’s winter, and a scarf is just too metro? Was there actually a memo saying, “Grow a beard because if you don’t, Jesus will cry?” I’m very curious so if you know the answer, let me know. I’ll be here.
