Paticus' Past:The 'Stache...


This is, unfortunately, NOT a Halloween picture. I wish that it were. I'm not sure whether I look more like a narc, or like an extra in a porn movie. Of course, it is not just the 'stache, the HUGE aging movie star-style glasses do not help.
I found this picture while I was visiting my Mom over Christmas. based on the other pictures, it seems to be an Easter picture, and my best guess is that it is '93 or '94.
I cannot remember ever having just a mustache. I have had facial hair off and on since I graduated from high school. I used to grow a beard in the winter, and then shave it off some time in the spring. I have not shaved off my beard or mustache since 2000, I think(the last time I was clean shaven was when I was Velma from Scooby Doo for Halloween.), but I do my best to keep it neat and trimmed.
Anyway, as I said, I cannot remember ever having just a mustache, and I think that this picture is a pretty fine example of why that is the case. Don't get me wrong, I think that many people can rock just a 'Stache, I am simply not one of them.
Well, I don't think there was much point to this post, so I guess I should just go on my way.
Check ya later.

Someone at the New York Times clearly reads your blog, and saw your post as an impetus to write an entire article on mustaches: yea or nay: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/08/fashion/08CODES.html?_r=1&ref=fashion
