Growing a beard

About 10 days of growth

Some people, my wife included, ask me the question, Why are you growing a beard? I respond to this question by posing another question. Why not grow a beard? Really, why not grow a beard? Not everyone has been geneticaly gifted with enough facial hair to grow a full beard. I feel that if you are one of the gifted few, you should take advantage of this gift and grow out your beard at least once, if not more, during your life. Now I am in no way saying that I grow a perfect beard, I have light brown hair, yet my beard grows in red with a somewhat blonde mustache, but i have been gifted with the ability to grow a full beard and several times I have taken advantage of this gift. The main reason that I am currently developing my talent for growing a beard is because a little over a week ago I broke my right clavicle and it was a too painfull at first to shave. Now that the beard has started to grow, who am I to deny myself and those around me of the delight that comes from beards. With Jen's graduation coming up in a few weeks, she is already trying to get me to shave, we will have to see what happens.

i agree with Brittany, I want to know how long it took you to type this? Or did Jen have to transcribe?

To answer Brittany and Ashley's question, I did type this and surprisingly enough it didnt take that long to type. After almost two weeks I have become pretty efficient at doing things with my left hand. Although I still have a little trouble sometimes taking my shirt off, so I have Jen help me with that and sadly I havent been able to wash any dishes.
