Many of you have noticed something a little peculiar about pictures of Paul lately. ;)
For the first time in his adult life, Paul made an attempt to grow some facial hair. I didn't think it was possible, but it turns out it is. Why did he decide to give it a try? Well, Paul's a good sport, right? He's pretty much always up for fun and/or silly endeavors. It's part of why I love him so much. (Aww!) So, of course, when Paul heard that his department at work likes to have a little facial hair growing party during the month of October every other year, he was totally game--a little unsure, but game.
It all started out a little dicey. Those of you that know Paul are aware that he is a little lacking in the facial hair department. It's the Asian in him. ;) It started to grow, but it was definitely sparse. A few weeks in, though, it started to fill in ever so slightly. Suddenly, Paul had an honest to goodness goatee! And yes, he was proud of his little goatee. :)
Here's the team on the last day of the challenge:
And here are some closeups:
Before the shaving begins, Paul is confident that he is hot stuff.
Shaving has commenced. No more 'stache!
Yes, you have a cute smile, Paul. But now it's time for the rest to go!
Paul mourns the loss of his beloved goatee.
All is well, though! He may have lost a goatee, but he has gained a happy wife! I'm so glad I have my husband's face back!
