Where’s the Beard?

Shaved my beard today.

Hashtag shave the beard.

At some point, in the not-too-distant future, when the late 1970s call and ask for their facial hair back, I want to be looked upon as a trendsetter.

Hashtag no more beard.

30-60 days after droves of men take Gillette razors to their faces, I want people to look back at what I did long before them and say, “He had an idea.”

To proclaim, “He was ahead of his time.”

Those that scoffed, those that tempted me with flattering words, saying “You look better with a beard. Younger.” Those people, they will eat from the plate of shame.

Those people will drink from the chalice of regret.
