Nonetheless, I gave it a shot and participated, at least for a few days. I knew my wife would not be on board with my parting with the razor. She has sensitive skin, so if I want to kiss her, I’d better take care of business. But here posed a great excuse not to shave, a loophole if you will, so I jumped on it.
In my thirties, I'm thankful for the fact that I am not a hairy man. I didn’t start shaving regularly until my twenties, and even today, my ‘stache came in pretty light. But with a pregnant wife at home, I have a lot of free time on my hands. So I present, my movember surprise.
Some people can this pull this look off. Ron Swanson, Ron Burgundy and Ron Jeremy to name a few. Wait a minute, maybe you have to be named Ron? No, My dad has rocked a mustache for as long as I can remember, in fact he looks strange without it. For others, myself included, not so much.
I did manage to raise awareness, at least in my household. My wife is aware that I look like a—how did she put it—oh yes, a sketchy child molester who “skeeved” her out. So much for my support. I tried Movember, I really did. Unfortunately, I will have to find another way to champion your cause, preferably a way that doesn't involve me looking like a hipster sleazeball. But it wasn't all in vain, I did get a kiss for my troubles…after I shaved of course.
