With the trip now a few days away I've been debating a change. Specifically, a change in facial hair. I've had my goatee for about 13 years now. In fact, over the past 20 years there's been about five months where I haven't had facial hair. Alas, my university days saw me with a moustache, something I'm not really sure I ever pulled off successfully. But I've liked the goatee. Granted, I grew it when they were cool and all, but I've still liked how it looks on me.
So I'm contemplating shaving it off for the trip to Italy. Why? For a change. Because Cathy has certainly gently mocked me in recent months over the amount of gray that is showing up there. And perhaps as a reminder to me what my face looks like without hair.
On the downside, I like the goatee, it means more of my face I have to shave (I hate shaving) and, as Cathy will point out, I'm not the biggest fan of change in the world.
So, yay or nay on the shaving of the goatee? Let me know what you think.
And yes, I know I can grow the damn thing back. I can grow it back in about 10 days. I'm just low on things to write about today.
