I have been dying my hair for what seems like decades. Those first grays showed up when I was in high school. High School! I have run the gamut on trying to find the perfect hair dye. That looks natural. And doesn't bust my budget. (Natural Instincts hazelnut)
And then there is my husband. Who looks so young. Really young. Like a frat boy. But actually. He's older than me. And it wasn't until a few years ago that he actually got any gray hair at all. It's just so unfair.
But...there has been a bonus. He used to stop shaving on the weekends. And he'd be rather scruffy. And pointy. And bristly. But then. When those few grays showed up. They showed up on his faced. Not so much on the top of his head. And my husband for the very first time. Showed that he had some vanity. Because now he shaves. Daily.
Except that last year. At Thanksgiving. He stopped shaving during the vacation. I guess his vanity meter didn't go up because he didn't leave the house. Football. 'Nuff said.
And by the end of the weekend. I had changed my mind about wanting him clean shaven. He looked pretty sexy. I liked the scruffy look. Except. He went back to work. And immediately one of his co-workers asked "So...did you lose a bet?" And then he shaved.
You all know that I LOVE to sprinkle in some eye candy into my posts. It's one of my trademarks. Hallmarks. Are there any other marks?
And when I think about the eye candy. That I typically sprinkle. They are all kinda scruffy.
There's Liev Schrieber with his stubble.
Eric Dane with his goatee.
Clive Owen has that smidge more than 5 o'clock shadow.
And Hugh Jackman. May we have a moment of silence? And his beard.
So...this got me to thinking. Pondering. Contemplating. And I have a question for you. Of the greatest importance. What do you think? What do you like? Do you like clean shaven? A goatee? Soul patch? Beard? Or maybe for you. The mustache is where it's at. Or do you have a whole different set of rules. One that is okay for your husband. Boyfriend. Whatever. And another that is okay for your "free pass?"
