The dirty 'stache.

I mustache you a question, but I'll shave it for later. 

It's halfway through Novem-beard and things are getting pretty hairy around here.
More specifically, things are getting pretty hairy on Ryan's face.
If you're unfamiliar with Novem-beard, this is the month when men forgo shaving.
I'm not 100% sure why. Laziness, perhaps? Laziness + preparation for the 
cold winter months ahead? Or perhaps it's a ploy to avoid posing for Christmas card photos.
Whatever the reason, guys take on this "no-shaving challenge" for the thirty days of November.
Never in my life have I seen Ryan with facial hair, and now I can safely presume it's because
he looks kind of hilarious. He looks like he belongs in a chocolate milk ad
because he forgot to wipe the milk mustache off of his face. 
Or, alternatively, like perhaps he belongs in jail. 
This caterpillar-like creature inhabiting his upper lip is really starting to freak me out.
I can handle the itchy beard, but that dirty 'stache...
I may have to shave it off while he's sleeping.
Or, rather, while IT'S sleeping. I've taken to addressing the 'stache as its own separate entity,
because it's pretty much all I can focus on when I'm talking to Ryan.
I wish I had photographic evidence to show you, but the 'stache is an elusive beast.
It moves quickly - I assume this is how it catches its victims. 
Fifteen more days of this. Fifteen days, unless it drives him crazy before the first of December.
Or, unless I drive him crazy cracking 'stache jokes.
One can only hope.
I'm thinking that, as payback, I'll initiate a female version of the "No-shave" month.
We can call it "Dagger-legs December" or "Man-pit March".
Who's in? 


  1. Ha! That's funny! I would totally be in for a month of no shaving :) Heather

  2. Haha, my husband and his friends do this every year. It is actually an awareness thing for prostate cancer. Most men in my area link their "Movember" mustache growing to fundraising for cancer research!

  3. HAHA I love the female version ideas! We always just call it "No shave November" so I always joke, "it's for girls too, right?" That always seems to shut the boys up.

    Thankfully my husband is a sales rep and he can't grow out his beard because he has to look professional. Score for the home team!

  4. Oh...there should totally be a version for the ladies. Too funny.

  5. Around here they call it "No Shave November." When I was an RA in the residence halls, there was a guy RA who did a program and at the end of the month gave prizes for the best beard, most creative post-November beard design, etc. Well, one girl entered. It was awesome. I think she got the miscellaneous prize he'd been saving just because he knew someone would come up with something.

  6. HAHAHA xD my girlfriends and I have joked about doing that! lol gross!!! ;)


  7. Hahaha!

    It's an awareness/fundraiser for cancers that specifically affect men, I believe.

    My friend, who doesn't like facial hair on men, says it's her "Nosexvember"
