My dear husband is growing a beard. It all started when the power went out. We heated one room with the fireplace. We have a gas water heater so we could take hot showers but, in a really cold bathroom. He braved the shower but didn’t want to stay long enough for the shave.
We ran into our friends Mark and Kim and noticed Mark was growing a beard as well. Same reason. They decided these were their “protest beards”. I assume they were protesting the power being off. Well, the power is back on now and the beard is still growing. Now it is his “Mardi Gras beard.” I’ll have to check with Kim and see if Mark still has his beard. He may not have gotten the Mardi Gras update from my husband. So far, I like it okay. You know, men are funny!
