Now You See It, Now You Don't.

Sometime in December, when it was bitterly cold and we were battling sickness #3-b (or something like that), Scott threw in the towel on shaving. I thought it was just because he was sick, his face hurt, and he would get back to shaving once he was "up and at 'em". But within a week, he had grown a beard. Within 10 days, it was full on. His friends were suitably impressed with his ability to grow such a nice full beard in a short period of time. I have no idea what the guys at work thought, but I imagine they encouraged him to stick with it. I was outnumbered. Much to my surprise, my friends also liked Scott's beard. I posted a picture on my Facebook page, with the comment that I was going to make him shave it off. The comments flew in like never before. "No!!!", they said, "let him keep the beard!", and "I'd reconsider, girlfriend, it's dead sexy!". Goodness me, I thought. If I don't give my husband some lovin', he wouldn't have to look far to find someone who would. So I put my preconceived notions of beard-dissing aside, and took a fresh look. I had to agree, the beard was pretty sexy.
Now that the weather is warming up, I have been encouraging Scott to shave his beard off (with the agreement that he can grow it again next winter, should he so desire). I was very pleased that when I got home tonight, after a Ladies Night out (who am I kidding? It was one drink at a local pub), that Scott had shaved his beard off for me. Woot! Not to worry ladies, he was suitably rewarded.

    The maintenance of the beard was getting to be more trouble than it was worth. Besides, it was chafing Kat on her thighs... er, I mean chin.

  6. And there's Scott hurdling over the line of good taste. We can always count on him for that!

  8. I was one of the people who liked it, however I am happy to see his freshly shaved face as well. My own husband gets the wrath if he doesn't shave for a day..I guess I am a hypocrite that way ! Nothing like good old fashioned double standards !
