My Long Beard

Filed under: Personal — Les Bain @ 2:21 pm

My beard is very long. I spend most of my time working from home, so I do not feel the need to keep it neat and trim like I used to.

People treat me differently now.

  • People smile at me.
  • Call me Santa Claus.
  • People ask me how long it took to grow.
  • Other men with beards tell me stories of their beards.
  • People yell over that they like the beard.

I need to get a more professional look, but it is fun for a while.  But I am not sure I can stand all the Santa references around the Holidays.
