I am suffering a bit from shavers remorse. I had my goatee and mustache (technically referred to as a van Dyke) shaved on Saturday. I cannot decide if I like it. Maybe I just need to get used to it. I cannot remember a time when I did not have a goatee. I think I have had it for about 15 years. I am not sure. But I am used to seeing a goatee in the mirror and it is freaking me out.
The space between my lip and nose seems naked. My face seems rounder and nondescript. The reviews have been mixed on Facebook. How funny that people on a thing called Facebook are commenting about my facial hair, huh?
Anyhow...some like it and say I look younger and some have urged me to grow it back immediately. I sort of wanted something different but my face feels naked and exposed.
Maybe I will just grow back a mustache for a while. I don't know. Maybe I just need to get used to clean shaved Tom looking back at me in the mirror.
