The return of the goatee

The other day I decided to start growing the old goatee again. I successfully had something that resembles a goatee last year when I refused to shave for a few weeks and then shaved everything off except the place where this weird little beard is supposed to be. Most "manly" men that I know can grow a full beard in their sleep or just before dinner time.

For me, it takes months of patient growth and people asking me, "what's that on your face?" My facial hair grows very slowly and selectively--missing a few key areas required by goatee enthusiasts (I just made that term up). However, if I don't clip them off religiously two or three times a day, I can have a full set of antlers before sundown.

Take this picture, for instance, of me in San Diego a few months ago. It would have been such a nice picture if not for the antlers. The only good thing about being able to grow antlers is that it provides a regular source of income with the local taxidermist. Wish me luck on the goatee.

DANG yer startin' to look like your old man! And by "old man" I mean the petri dish, not your biological genetic donor.

Plus, with the bright orange shirt, you won't have to worry about hunters shooting you. They'll just think you're one of them.

You are killing me. This blog has a near fatal dose of zany humor.

Joe - Thanks for stopping by and I'm glad you like the blog. I've decided that every once in a while I might actually have something serious to say (e.g. August 27). But I'll probably leave most of that for Java Jesus.
