Go to sleep now, little ugly. Go to sleep now, you little fool.

I've grown a beard.
There's been no reason for it, other than I just wanted to do something different with my face.
It now presents me with somewhat of a dilema; keep it or lose it.
If I keep it, then I'm wondering if I should leave it au naturel giving the likes of Brian Blessed a run for his money or should I tend to it with care and attention as if it's some new facial accessory. Either way, it's not just myself I have to think about. I can't imagine it's a very nice feeling having whispy bristles rubbing into all sorts of intimate places. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like to have feelings of pleasure disrupted by the sensation of brillo pads rubbing up against certain parts of my body.
Which leaves me the second option of losing it. Fairly easily done, however it's now a length that is beyond a simple razor's comprehension. The results would kill the usable life of at least one, maybe two razors with all the scraping and dragging through, most likely leaving me with shaving rash a-plenty.

Who ever thought a beard could prove to be so much bloody trouble.

I don't know, I think there's something kind of charming about a whispy bristly scrubby jowl.

I'm quite partial to a bit of the old whiskery meself.

Guaranteed to tickle a girl's fancy, as it were...

In my experience, a beard proper is fine, as is clean shaven. It's that two or three day's growth thing which is really unpleasant and can leave a girl wincing as she walks, or looking like half her chin's been scrubbed off. But perhaps I'm particularly sensitive.

For the exact reasons you mentioned there, get rid. Unless we are talking a couple of weeks worth of beard in which case it may be soft enough by now for it to be put to some good use ;)

When J had just trimmed his beard it wasn't all that nice but a few days growth is alright :) ask The Girl whats comfy for her.

Hmmm....It appears the jury is out on the beard deliberation.
