PAYING ATTENTIONCyber acquaintence Joel Sax
undergoes surgery next week | These are his pictures, left and right | Understandably, he's apprehensive | Who wouldn't be?
He'll be losing his beard | Actually, I think he has already | Knowledge of this
reminds me of the time, years ago, when I wondered what I looked like without facial hair | I was about 26 or 27 | Until then I had been furr-faced since age 19 | Under the influence of what were then mandatory social lubricants of the time, and when a houseful of company was over, I carefully shaved off the hair on one side of my face | Everybody though I looked better with, at the very least, my mustache | Of course this meant I'd have to shave the rest off just to be able to grow it back | So I did | I've not been absent of facial hair since |
I wish Joel good fortune in his surgical adventure; remain curious as to what his depilated state might look like and wish him speedy return of his facial hair | Really, seriously, I already look forward to his adventurous recounts | Godspeed my friend |
