My razor beckons as society approaches ‘peak beard’

IMG_1387My timing was never very good. After years of growing “playoff beards” for coaching hockey, only to shave them immediately afterwards to keep peace at home, I finally said, I want I it, I’ll do it and grew one (technically, a goatee) about four months ago.

According to Darwinian evolution, however, so many of us have gone fuzzy that society is approaching “peak beard.” The key consequence is that, evolutionarily speaking, now a beard is less attractive to the wily female. In other words, I’m not only late for the party, but I’m also showing up ugly too.

So now I have to go through another bout of angst whether to give in and shave the damn thing. Man, life is so hard
