To Beard or Not to Beard? What Say You, Buttercup?
To beard, or not to beard? That is the focus of today’s Observations from the Tub since I came across the following slideshow from the World Beard and Mustache Championships. Yes, Buttercup, you read correctly, and because my own adorable son-in-law-to-be, David, is lushly bearded—here is a photo of the cutie-pie Cuban with my darling daughter—
—I dedicate today’s post to him, with the hope that he will view the following as neither an inspiration nor an aspiration, but as the fine curiosity that it is.
It is true that in some cultures beards don’t have to make a comeback because they never left, but until a few years ago (Duck Dynasty, anyone?) beards weren’t quite so common a sight here in the US. Sexy stubble, yes. Full, bushy beards, not so much. Over the last year or so, though, I’ve noticed a, um . . . growth . . . in the number of men sporting ooh-gobs of facial hair. What’s your take? Are you a fan of the beard or do you prefer a smooth jaw? Men, do you grow, or choose not to grow? Ladies, would you rather smoochie a face with a beard or without one? Inquiring minds and all that . . .
See you Monday for Pawsitive Pondering –
