Default Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?

In bathroom brushing my teeth and looked in the mirror. Face looked like a thousand miles of bad road. Time to knock off 5 days of face fuzz.

So much for looking like 'Old Man on the River.'

even though beards attract everything (dirt, lint, toothpaste, food, etc etc) there is no shame in having one, it adds character !!

Actually wish I could grow one, especially during the Winter. I get some whiskers on my chin and mustache but that's about it.

But on the flip side, I don't have to spend a lot of money shaving accessories.

I hate to shave...so I do it about every 3-4 days, so its always knocking off a thin beard, minus the gotee, that part stays. However, wintertime is offical beard time. November to march sometimes April is beard season. I dont care what the wife says :P

Ladies love a nice beard, and especially a nice mustache. Back in the day, nothing said "distinguished" like some facial hair.

Default Re: Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?

I grow a beard 10 months of the year. July and August I have it shaved off but the rest of the year I let her fly. My wife has gotten used to it now and complains less and less.

Default Re: Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?

I have been married for almost three years, and have known my wife for about 6. I don't think she has ever seen me clean shaven. She will not allow it. I do not complain one bit, I hate shaving.

Default Re: Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?

I grew one while moving to Colorado, actually grew in in Wisconsin My wife likes it and I love not shaving everyday. Many benefits to a beard. That said, I've got some friends who shouldn't grow one, just doesn't come in right.

Default Re: Ever had a really bad idea? Like grow a beard?

The whiskers grow whether I want them or not. Almost every picture of me has the 'you need a shave look'. Every winter when I come home from the cabin I have a task cutting the gray fur from my face. I would be happy if my face went bald rather than my scull................
