I thought, Hey, why not grow a mustache?  New year, new face.  And it will help me mark the time, will set this month apart from the rest, The Month I Had a Mustache.  It will give me something to do. Etc.

But I swear, if my Armenian coworkers say one more time that
-“That doesn’t suit you.”
-“That’s not handsome.”
-“That looks like a broken brush.”
then I’m going to unload on someone. It’s the first thing they say when they see me in the morning. Seriously.  And as for the whole, it’s-because-they-consider-you-a-friend, I say, well consider my face, a face that is exuding I-can’t-really-deal-with-a-week-of-people-telling-me-I’m-ugly.  And let it grow.

    Awesome. :)

    I doubt, however, that your handlebars will match Sam’s. He’s one of a kind.

  7. […] about. Walk into a room with a new, full beard and people will notice.  You may remember that my mustache made me look like a creeper.  The molestache, I believe, was how it was referred to in some […]
