I Want A Cleee-e-e-e-ean Shaven Man!



So this weekend I shaved my beard off.

Oh -- I kept some gigantic Neil Young-ish mutton chops, but the bulk of my beard? GONE. Within two seconds of the hair hitting the sink I regretted my decision WHOLEHEARTEDLY. Why? Because without a beard, I have a goofy looking face. The beard gave me the illusion of youth. Now? My jowls are out there for all to see. I look like Paul McCartney if you maybe punched the guy hard in the kisser, broke his nose, and took about 50% of the hotness away from him. Or -- Paul McCartney, NOW.

Oh, and according to people on the internet? I gots a double chin. And it's true. I do. I went through a phase where I lost about 30 pounds and I *still* had a double chin.

WITH the beard I look like a bohemian hobo, sort of late-period Beatles meets 70s Bob Dylan. WITHOUT the beard I look like a jowly Mike Nesmith.

Sigh. HOW long does it take to grow a beard back?

Y'know Kevin Jonas looks like a pre-pubescent Mike Nesmith, so maybe this new clean shaven look will work out for you. Sideburns are the greatest thing ever, especially unhampered by a beard.

My lad is handsome no matter what! Besides, I have the soccer mom hair to compliment the new look!

Your hair is NOT soccer mom hair, unless your soccer mom is, like, Nico.

Phooey on beards anyway. You might be a better Mod than you ever thought.

And welcome to the Native American Jowl Club. It's nice here.

Don't grow that beard back puhleese! You look better clean shaven, cuz there is nothing wrong with your face or jawline! You are delusional about that.

The sideburns can go bye-bye too. You look better as a slightly messy haired, clean shaven guy.

You do what you want, dude...But I kinda' liked the Beatle-y by way of Dave Grohl look you had going on. I wish I could grow a beard that cool...Mine looks okay for about a week or two, then the gray starts to appear....and then I agonize whether or not to color it...and if I do color it, will I wind up having it look like this weird shade of mid 80's Bob Barker black (and almost blue-ish at times, I kid you not) or Jerry Lewis Exxon Valdez black or Paul McCartney/what shade will it be this tour brown?

Speaking of Papa Nez, he shaved his beard off a few years ago for an AFI 100 deal...and he looked kinda' scary without it...I would hope he grew it back...or at least start wearing that cool blue toboggan again.

I'd keep the 'burns, though...Sounds like you might have a cool pre-India trip 1968 John Lennon look down (e.g. the Lady Madonna b/w The Inner Light picture sleeve).

I just have to say...my hubby has a super double chin an he's always doing the beard thing.

I think he's super sexy and I always think everyone wants to do him as much as I do.

As long as your a kind man who gets his woman off you have nothing to worry about. Beard or not.

I say...Work it. You can.

And of course when I say "your" i mean "you're".

Gross bad way of communicating.

Accepts Affection said...

Maybe not. I'm so paranoid on blogs where people actually know how to write. Blah.
