Tragedy Strikes!

I went to trim my beard today and accidentally set the clipper on to low a setting, so now I’m down to just the lightest brush of 5 o’clock shadow. Oops. But it will grow back; I’m blessed/cursed with fast-growing hair. But perhaps it’s all for the best. As PhD Comics recently taught me (as seen on Andrew Sullivan’s blog), I’m many years premature with the full-on facial hair:

But I just don’t think I can do the “alternating moustache/goatee” that seems to be recommended for this point in my life. I dunno; I’ll play around with staying more clean shaven for a while. But the beard goes so nicely with my new favorite rainy-day attire (fedoras and sweater vests) that I may not be able to keep it off for long.
