Not that there is anyone reading this, but in a previous post, I talked about the growing of a mustache, and the various reactions.
Well, I finally worked up the courage to shave off the tickler (little goatee) and leave only the mustache. It instantly elevated it from scruffiness, to intentional, and made it look a lot better. People commented on the mustache as though it were new, despite the fact that it has not changed.
I think I shall keep it this way for a while.
