SILLY SILLY: and Waaayyyy OFF TOPIC...but
« on: June 25, 2009, 06:45:06 pm »
My husband shaved off his mustache...but here's the kicker:  It's been 30 years!!

Our children (21 and 19):  Have never seen him without it
Our Niece and Nephews:   Have never seen him without it
His Co Workers:               Have never seen him without it (He's been there 25 years)
The Dentist, PCP, Clerks, Bank Teller, Grocery boy, Newspaper Carrier, our Neighbors, My Boss, Many of our Friends:  You guessed it:     Have never seen him without it

His Mom and my parents barely remember him without it and...I've never really KISSED him without it.  It was sort of peach fuzz when we were in high school (but it was there).  If I'm not on the boards later; you'll know why...though I NEVER KISS AND TELL...lol. ;) :o

    I read it....  thank you for posting that, it soothes the feelings of injustice that I felt on her behalf.

    And I agree with Cheerio that you should take one when he's sleeping...  or just take one of something else that he <ahem> has to hold up for a better picture, or some such subterfuge.   :D

    lol.  I thought of the sleeping pic.  But the nutbag sleeps with his arm (weird) draped over his face...sort of like what one does (lol) when they don't want a picture taken of them...bent; elbow up, block the face.  I will get one...one way or another.  I'll tell him no piture...no cook; the way to get anything out of him is to deny his stomach.

    My husband did the same thing years ago when he was watching the girls while I was at a club meeting. He told his MOTHER that he was going to shave it off, but didn't tell me. I'd never seen him without it, and it was a shock. I told him it was a bit like losing a favorite dog. He didn't quite get the comparison. (For you Stephanie Plum readers, you'll understand this: He gave me a mental eyeroll.  LOL)  Anyway, it took me awhile to adjust to the missing mustache.

    Everyone has bugged him for years.  I told him it was getting gray. My kids said you can grow it back in a darn day given your five o'clock shadow; just let us see it.  My sister said she'd get all her junk out of our basement (hmmmm). I think the final straw was I told him he was a big old baby, time for a change.  Just satisfy everyone, you can always grow it back...shut everyone up. It might make you look younger.  I think he was curious himself...his upper lip hadn't seen the light of day since he was a kid.

    Everyone loves it but my daughter.  She said he's not Daddy without it.  It wasn't anything but a regular mustache...not long, not handlebar...just plain regular, trim, neat.

    Good thing he did it NOW and not at the end of the summer.  That would have looked funny....  a tanned face and then the pale upper lip.

    Changes are good sometime. But I have noticed with 2 of my uncles that had mustaches for as long as I can remember then they shaved them, You always kind of see them with the 'stache.

    When I look at my uncles now I still see them in my head as the mustache being there, even though one of my uncles shaved his like 5years ago.

    It just becomes a part of them and it is odd to see it gone.

    lol.  At the rate we are going:  It probably wouldn't be a problem...we need SUN!!!  It has rained for days on end.  Out of 25 days, it has rained all but four I think.  More for tomorrow and Saturday.

    My dad has always grown a mustache, then shaved it off, grown a beard, then shaved it off. I guess I've become immune to the changes over the years, because the other day while we were boating on the river, someone made a comment about the grey in his beard. I thought to myself, "Dad has a beard?!?" Then I had to look at him, and sure enough, he does. Then I tried to remember how long he's had it. I honestly don't know. I guess I'm not very observant.

    My ex shaved his off one time.  I didn't notice for two days.  In my defense, He would often let it grow for a couple of years and then shave it off.  After we divorced he moved south and got one of those big handlebar mustaches that look silly, IMO.  I have been known to bring out an old picture of him to show people that that is NOT what he looked like when I was married to him.  LOL.

    My DH had a mustache when I met him, but he kept his so short and small it was not noticeable.  It got grayer and grayer and you couldn't even see it, could hardly see it before either, so he finally shaved it off.  He only had it to look older  :D
