9. Evokes memories of my bartending days...

when a couple of the "regulars" routinely showed up unbathed and unshaved; one of them even joked that he shook too badly to risk using a razor. Couple of times they smelled so bad that the other customers threatened to take them out back and introduce them to a garden hose. Sorry, guys, but seeing the scruffiness brings back those smells. Also reminds of junior high when some of the boys were trying to show off the scraggly beginning effects of puberty.

Just one old lady's opinion. And, for the record, I've always been partial to beards and 'staches.

is getting close to Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) long. It ain't coming off til the GutBrain-in-Chief is out of there. I honestly thought he wouldn't last more than 6 months. I was wrong. Awhile back, I gave it a slight Manafort trim and another Manafort/Kushner/Don Jr. trim might be coming up but I'm in it for the long haul.

I believe there is another DU'er doing the same.

40. It's how it feels for me too

Once a friend's boyfriend sported the perma stubble look. When I left a party at her place, he walked me to my car. While I was thinking he was being a gentleman, he decided to drunkenly steal a kiss. Besides being put off by him assuming he could kiss me, I wondered how she put up with that stubble. It was like kissing a hedgehog! But I couldn't say anything ...

28. Yup, 5 o'clock shadow

When I wasn't so gray, I had that shadow, stubbiness, if I didn't shave a second time around 5 pm. My wife didn't mind so I just shaved once.

But with my gray, I don't get such an obvious look anymore. The gray stubble, that comes after a day or 2 of not shaving, looks really awful. It looks dirty and makes most old men look grayer and older. I don't know why those old men in Hollywood think it's a good look.

And one reason only - I absolutely HATE to shave. Ugh. Drives me up the fucking wall, so Iíd rather have the stubble. As a geezer-in-training of 53, I have reached the point in my life when I donít give a shit what other people think of my face! Of course, it helps that as a gay man I donít have to worry about what the ladies like 😁

30. There are times when I don't want to bother shaving before going to the clinic.

But I do it anyway.

Stubble is great for looking the part of a scruffy, exhausted, overworked medical provider. But it's best left to the emergency medicine staff. It just looks lazy on a primary care provider like me who at least gets to go home at five o'clock.

makes guys look as if they don't wash and have bad breath and b.o.

Equally ugly to me is the "shadow root" fad I see on some tv actresses now. The bottom part of their hair is blonde and the upper part, starting with the roots, is dark.

53. When I retired I decided to go without shaving for a while. IMHO I looked much older after a

couple weeks. So I ended up buying one of those beard/moustache trimmers where you can adjust the settings. Eh...it was okay. But mostly I just shave. Now and then I let it grow for a few days, but not often. Lots of men and women shave various areas these days. A friend told me so.
