Gaze upon my virility! (Or The Great Beard-Off of '06!) Now

Post by Crawler » Sat Apr 01, 2006 5:12 pm

For the past 6 months, I've been growing a goatee. Constantly growing, no trimming or anything.

Needless to say, it's gotten long. It began as a friendly wager between myself and my friend Lucas. He was convinced that he could beat me in a "beard off".

The stakes were set (bragging rights only) and the rules were outlined: We'd have 6 months, October 1 to April 1, to grow the longest beard. On April 1, they would be measured and the winner would be announced.

I won. By an inch and a half. It's now over 4 inches long...see for yourself:

And now, the Great Winter Beard Off is over...and I'm getting this half-a-dead-muskrat the hell off my face. (And getting a haircut for the first time since the beard off began. ;) )

OK - so where is the de-pelted version? Do you feel 10 pounds lighter? Enjoying the fact that you no longer have "snacks" waiting to discover 1/2 hour after a meal? At least you should have avoided the lovely reverse tan look of a beard grown during the summer :D.

Maybe I should do the same with one of my friends... Don't shave your legs for a couple of months... :smirk
And now there's life/ And a chance to make up for all those mistakes/ But please don't get me wrong/ Cos everything was honest/ True and from the heart/ There's still the same old hang ups so don't fret/ It's not safe yet/ And who knows there's always time to screw up again

:LOL Yeah, on second thought.....

Seriously, speaking of nasty displays of hair growth, I knew a guy in high school who could braid the hair on his legs. Lots of little cornrows running down his legs like tights. His girlfriend braided it for him. I had to sit next to him in history and couldn’t stop staring….
