Everyone knows that I like it when Dave shaves. Yes, yes, part of this has to do with kissing. It’s true. Nobody likes a scratchy kiss. But part of why I like to see Dave clean-shaven is because I like the way it looks. I think that he looks cleaner, neater and less shady. Not that my husband is shady, but you understand. My opinion on facial hair, however, does not just apply to Dave.
I would like to present a few pieces of evidence in support of my opinion that all guys look better clean-shaven…
Exhibit A – This is my brother, Michael. Don’t be scared. He really is a nice guy under all that scruff. This picture was taken a few years ago on St. Patrick’s Day. This was the very day that he skipped around the local grocery store, dressed as a leprechaun, singing “Where are me Lucky Charms? They’re Magically Delicious!” Like I said, he is a very nice young man under all the hair…and comedy!
Exhibit B – Michael has recently shaved and cut his hair. He sent me this picture and an e-mail the other day saying, “Blog about this.” Well, ok. He cleans up nicely, no?
A couple of years ago, Michael and I spent the summer together in Chicago. Good times were had by all. He slept on my futon. I charged him rent. He has yet to forgive me for that. Anyhow, that summer I lined up a temp job for him at a law firm in the suburbs somewhere. I made him shave and wear a suit for his first day on the job. He walked into the law firm and all the attorneys were wearing blue jeans and sporting facial hair. I believe one of the attorneys actually said, “Oh, look how cute you are in your suit. You can take off your jacket and tie now.” He has also yet to forgive me for that.
Maybe he will forgive me for this?
