As my 30 days of freedom draws to a close, it marks the return of shaving into my daily routine. Since it takes me a long time to grow anything vaguely approximating a beard, this is the last time for a while that I'd have the opportunity to grow one. As such I felt that I should shave it off in all sorts of goofy styles during this ceremonious Gillette moment to see how I would look. So with that, I invite you to come along and witness this magical transformation! ...come on, don't be scared!
STAGE 1: NO SHAVING. This is of course how our hero (me) started off the day. I hadn't shaved for a week. Notice the circular patch where my dimples are. For some reason stubble doesn't grow there...God knows why...and hence it's a subject of ridicule amongst my family.
STAGE 2: GOATEE. Hey look it's a SIG (Shady Indian Guy)... no, no, don't be scared, it's just me! Shot! I gave myself a goatee and now I can be easily mistaken for a SIG... or maybe just Bally Sagoo. All that's missing is a completely black wardrobe and an "Om" tattoo on my bicep. For those of you who think that my look is very convincing and that I really am a SIG, I'll answer you question with another question, "would a real SIG be watching hockey?" (you can see the screen over my ear)
STAGE 3: THUG LIFE. What a hero pose this one turned out to be! By shaving off the botttom part of my goatee I look like a pure thug... Please note of course the gold chain, and 2 beaded necklaces. This only adds to my street cred of course... plus now I look like U2's The Edge circa 1997. The slightly scary thing is that I soooorttaaa like this look.
STAGE 4: SUPERMAN. I've fully shaved and a haircut has been obtained. I now look quite good again. Quiiiiite.
STAGE 5: CLARK KENT. The glasses are back...oh they're back. Conversely many of you mean people out there maybe thinking that I look quite nerdy and am thinking in my head "Hello there, I love math and solving Soduko puzzles for pleasure."
