Year of the Beard: Week 6

This just in - the beard has passed the "scruffy" stage is approaching the "gnarly" point as we end week six. I continue to receive a steady stream of comments. Most people say something like "it looks good" which is questionable. Other are more direct with a comment like "it's really coming in" which tells me we're reaching that gnarly stage. Also interesting that men tend to see it as a challenge of sorts - many will say "I can't grow a beard like that" as if I am performing some kind of trick. There is clearly a manhood issue - guys who have spotty beards feel they have been denied some aspect of maleness, I guess.

While the nasty thing is keeping my face warm on these "cold" winter mornings, I don't know how long I can stand it. Chances are the beard has about 4 weeks to live.
