Handlebar Mustache

Heh!  I am feeling pretty damn good at the moment!  Today was set to be a hellacious Departmental Meeting with people getting horribly angry at each other and generally being idiots.  I worried about it all week long, as I am Chair of the Department and oversee the meeting and hate with a passion, the vile vitriol that can ensue at these sorts of things.  Well, I am damn proud to say that I handled the situation with aplomb!  I kept people reasonable and kind to each other, and no umbrage broke out!  We actually accomplished a fair amount of work!

The above pleased me no end, and I thought that called for a celebratory late afternoon with my elderly father-in-law.  He was in a brandy mood, whereas I was in more of a boilermaker mood (whisky and beer for those who may not know what a boilermaker is).  Ample pipes were also enjoyed!  

Now I am home, feeling pleasant.  So, pleasant in fact that I decided to "handlebar" my mustache, much to the chagrin of my wife.  I do admit I look a bit silly with a wide, handlebar mustache along with my beard.... but what the hell... I find it rather fun to look a bit odd and silly!  I am thinking I will sport the handlebar all weekend, even at Mass.  I will get a lot of silly looks and grins about it, but it will be fun!   I will brush my mustache back out for Monday morning, so I look back to my regular self.   But for now, it if fun looking like an old German beirmeister from the 1800s!!!

When you think it's going to really bad, it isn't and when you don't, it really is. Funny how that works.

#3 son has had a handlebar mustache for a good while now, I think he would look plain without it, now.

You must be in a good mood if you're experimenting with your facial hair. How about trying the three-musketeer chevalier look while you're on a roll.
