Gandalf Groupies?

Favorite Apron posts on a new style trend- the mighty beard.

She asks the question, why do adult males want to look pre-pubescent when they can throw away the razor and have a beard?

Answer: Men shave for the same reasons women do. Extra hair is not exactly comfortable. It can be prickly and itchy. Especially when it's hot. And wearing pieces of my dinner mixed with hair on my face is not fun either. If you've ever seen me eat, you know what I mean.

Don't get me wrong, in the winter a beard is a nice thing. But not during the summer. Especially if you're planning on watching a baseball game in St. Louis.

But still and all, I'm game. How about it? The Confessional Lutheran guys will grow summertime beards if the Lutheran Ladies will also forego any shaving. Deal?

Uh...yuck...wait a minute...on second thought, cancel THAT deal.


  1. Yes, cancel the thought about Lutheran ladies not shaving!! That would not be cool in more ways than one!! :)
