Peach Fuzz or a Big Mess?

I thought that I might also title this post “Terry Werry had no hair…” but I quickly vetoed that one. So, this could be part of a “Things about Terry (you never really wanted to know)” series. But this was “by request” from a lurking visitor who shall remain nameless… for right now. Now, on with the regular scheduled blog entry…
When most people think of the word “Facial Hair” usually the images big burly men such as Grizzly Adams 061025grizzlyor even the rockers ZZ Top. 061025zztopAnd guys, you all told your mom that when you (finally) left home you were going to grow your beard like the dudes on ZZ Top. Your mom probably didn’t even glance up from her magazine when she said “Okay Dear…”

Well, I have never ever been the poster child for facial hair. In fact, I didn’t even “really” shave until my Sophomore in college and even then it was more for… well, I don’t know why I shaved, I didn’t need to… My 5 O’clock shadow is like a 5 month shadow.

So for the past 6-8 weeks I have been growing my “beard”… so that I can be a manly man and have butter scones with tea. Perhaps even grunt, fart, scratch my butt and say “More POWER!” and “Where’s the Duct Tape?” Actually, I do all that (especially the ‘farting’ part) with or without facial hair. So you want to see what 6-8 WEEKS can do for a man:

Okay, I will give you a second to stop laughing before you scroll further.

And now, for my next magic trick… the facial hair shall DISAPPEAR!

That’s more like a Kiddie than a Goatie

[Insert witty gay joke here, winner gets a prize]

And now, back to my normal… every so baby (but getting older) face:

And there you go… 6-8 weeks of Work, down the drain (literally) in 5 minutes. I don’t complain anymore about not having to shave. When I was <21 I wanted to grow facial hair so that I wouldn’t get carded… well, now that time period has gone it would have been a fruitless endeavor because I still get carded from time to time.

My response (now) to “Can I see your ID?”:

“HELL YEAH!”

    look at you…. such a baby face.

    very nice before and after pics.

    Oh and you have very nice blue eyes too.

  2. Don’t take this the wrong way… but, um, thank god you shaved. That was looking like an incident involving crazy glue and a windy day more than anything else! πŸ˜‰

    Not sure what to think with the facial hair. I like your better without it. Maybe we could get something on an infomercial to help fill in the spots in the beard.

  4. Leesa says:

    OK..I have to say I like the smooth face..

    No witty gay joke needed πŸ˜‰

    I can’t put my finger on it….but I think I’ve seen “Hairy Terry” on a mugshot photo. And I’m sure it was a sex offender (predator) of some sort….maybe a peeping tom???? Or gay porn star?
    Keep the baby face. The hair is just too creepy!

  6. Sam says:

    I’m a fan of the smooth look…10 years younger I say, maybe even more aerodynamic!

    You SHOULD take the kids to the race this weekend…it’d be fun! (my husband might disagree after leaving at 6am with our two boys, my friends hubby and their son just to watch us trot around jacksonville for a half hour!)

  7. Marianna says:

    I’m likin’ the shaved, personally!

    Thanks! The camera really brought the color out… not photoshopping involved.

    I’ll just go to Lowe’s and get a can of spray paint

    I am leaning toward taking them to the race… I just have to make sure that the timing with the kids and napes will work out!

    Definitely a trend… I’ll keep the fuzzy scraggley look to the hoodlums…

    Use to, my husband couldn’t grow a bread… then when he was in the military and had to shave everyday – it eventually came. Now, he has to shave all the time or have major facial hair. I prefer him to shave – and thankfully, he does. Tho, he does keep a goatee some.

    I think you look best without it. Love your eyes!

    OK, ignore my typos. I didn’t catch them ’til I already submitted.
