This is after four days or so of not shaving. And it's possibly as thick of a beard as I've ever had. What I didn't capture in the shots was the little circle just underneath my chin where no hair grows ever. My own personal crop circle. Or as I once heard a comedian describe it, "the dance floor surrounded by the carpet."
Anyway, I doubt I'll ever be able to grow a full beard. I'm not sure I'd even want one. But whenever I can, I give it my best shot. Because I'm a man like that.
