Randy Booz was having a birthday party this evening and I was supposed to pick up someone on the way over. I received a message that they were delayed so I went to Randy’s first. In a way I’m glad. I didn’t actually have room for them with all the space in my car occupied by cakes.
Randy’s party was enjoyable and it was the first time I had taken my attempt at a beard out in public. It was well received and someone asked me why I hadn’t done it sooner. After chewing on it a bit, I realized that one of the things I hated about having a five o’clock shadow was that it made my double chin pronounced. Now that I no longer have one, I wonder if a beard is something I would have stumbled upon if it hadn’t been otherwise recommended.
