Writer's Block: It’s about to get hairy

Do you like beards, goatees or mustaches? Why or why not?


Poor Seanie tried to grow a beard this summer while I was abroad. When we were reunited after a month of separation, he had managed to grow some facial scruff:

Within a day of our reunion, though, I made him shave it off, because that stuff tickled my face and made it quite impossible to kiss him. He greatly mourns his loss to this day.

Don't get me wrong...I'm sure facial hair looks great on some guys. (With the exception of Cap'n Jack Sparrow, I confess I'm having trouble thinking of another example of a guy whose appearance was enhanced by a beard/goatee/whatnot.) But to me, it just looks sloppy most of the time. And if it's on Seanie, well, I don't feel like having a porcupine-face for a fiance. So no beards here!
