I Look 27 Again

I was thinking about saying 24 but 27 seems more appropriate.

At any rate, after a couple of weeks with scruff/beard/stubble, I shaved off my facial hair. Maybe it had something do to with the fact I found three (or more) gray hairs poking through. Maybe it had something to do with the itchiness. Maybe it had to do with the guilt my electric shaver gave me.

Yes, I’ll admit to somewhat of a love affair with it. How cool is it, it cleans itself. Is always ready for me anytime I want it. There’s something to be said about that. After all, it doesn’t ask much in return, just to make me happy while doing its job. I’m not saying that the stubble/beard/scruff won’t come back soon. I’m just enjoying a different look, a younger one.

I remember when my dad shaved his beard, I couldn’t believe how young he looked. When I was a kid, I thought he must have taken some potion that made him look younger again. Check out the classic photo of my pop lounging around in his best Hefner look on the classic 70’s couch. Yes, that is a picture of me in the background. Please no comments on my attire, it was the late 70’s or early 80’s, yo!

So yes, I again hope to have all of those people who don’t think I’m in my 30’s (ahem, mid 30’s) believe that I’m in my late 20’s again. Now all that I need is my hair cut because I’m looking a little like Shaggy again.

  1. Lol! I can relate to the grey hair comment….only mine are at the top of my head and I am so into the whole dyeing thing!

    I think that a beard either suits you or it doesn’t. Some men really need to wear beards and it just doesn’t suit others.

    If your beard goes grey though, it can have the whole santy claus look though….def time to get rid….unless you are Kenny Rodgers (who btw, looks nothing like he used to anyway but that is a whole other post!)

    Enjoy the shaving….and hair-free face! Love the 70s pic btw. (Ever watched Life on Mars??? Lol!)

  2. I understand what you mean Taawd. Once year I grow a Tim McGraw Van Dyke. I really like the look and hate shaving, but the itchiness drives me crazy.

    Like the accumulation of rings in a tree trunk, each year there is more grey on my chin and this year especially there was more salt than pepper.

    With the beard the beard I look 48; without I look 38. (Hung-over I look 42 which is my real age!)
