Normally, if I was going to grow a moustache, for a role or a bet or something, I'd just grow a full beard and then shave off the beardy part. But part of the point of an event like Movember is to go through all the embarassing parts of having a weasly little moustachlette on your face for a couple weeks. So already at day 2, there are choices to be made. I want to get into the spirit of things, so I want to keep the beard areas trimmed. But I don't want to cut too far into the moustache areas and end up with a splotchy or too-thin moustache. And what kind of moustache am I going for, anyway? I mean, I'll probably end up with the Ron Swanson by default, but it's fun to dream. I have pretty light-colored beard hair, especially when it's short, so it's a little hard to even see where I'm trimming at this length. So this morning I sort of waved the electric razor around my cheeks and throat and tried to stay well away from the lip area.
