Beard Watch: Day 25

“He that hath a beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no beard is less than a man”
-Much Ado About Nothing

Well said indeed. Rickey’s just going to defer to the Bard from now on for his inspirational beard quotes. And no, that’s not a lighting trick, there’s actually some red in Rickey’s beard. We’re not entirely sure how this happened, but turning back now would mean forfeiting awesome nicknames such as “Firebeard,” “Rusty,” or “Gimli.” This is not an opportunity Rickey intends to pass up.

Did we mention that thanks to the beard, Rickey no longer gets carded when purchasing his alcohol? This is indeed good news for a 27 year old with a formerly boyish looking face. Even better was Rickey’s recent discovery that his local salon offers a package known as “manscaping” which includes a manicure, haircut and beard trim. But as you can see, we’re not quite at the point of needing to trim it just yet. Most beard growing gurus recommend waiting a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks before trimming one’s whiskers.

And with that quick update, Rickey is off to the Bronx this evening to watch the Mariners play the Yankees. The AL Wild Card, Papa Henderson’s sanity, and the fate of the nation all hang in the balance.

Nice beard Rickey. By the way, did you see that I will be partnering with Jack Bauer next season?

Egan--the folks over at Blogs4Bauer are most likely very excited by this news...

"Manscaping" is also the title of my in-the-worls biography of Liberace.

Zing!

PS Enjoy the game tonight.

I have hues of red mysteriously popping up most notably around the goatee section of the beard as well. Regardless, I think I’m going to break some sort of rule and buzz it down to porn scruff. I fear that after my trip to the Serengeti I will look like some crazed white man who was lost in the bush for bit and I in no way am looking to create any additional habitats for bugs and snakes to nestle up into.

The word "manscaping" is the new "metrosexual" (like maroon was the new black a few years ago).
