distinguished? or just fucking old?

I am, by nature, an extremely phlegmatic and lazy person who is an active(??) procrastinator with many things. Why do something today, after all, when you can do it tomorrow?

This extends to many areas of my life. One, in particular is shaving.

I don't like to shave, especialy not daily. And I've never had too. I'm a relatively hairless guy. It takes me weeks to grown anything close to something resembling a mustache. It's impossible for me to grow a beard or even a goatee. I can't even grow a fucking "soulpatch," for Chrissakes. *sigh*

When I let my facial hair grow, I just get the general fuzzy, semi-scruffy look. And I've gotten OK with that. And sometimes I like to be scruffy and not bother with shaving.

But now, unfortunately, that will have to change.

Not because of a work dress code. Certainly not because I suddenly got a woman in my life and she hates scruff. Not because I've suddenly developed a fondness for my Mach-3 razor.

Because the white hairs have sprouted and are spreading like fucking spreading white hairs. Grrrr!!
This is a detail shot of the pic above. Click on it to get the full appreciation of the white spikes of hair on my jawline.

Please ignore the fine, downy hair on my ears — I'm worried enough about the white hairs.

Fuck. I'm officially old now. Nothing says old like white hairs, even with a cherubic, boyish face like mine.

A plethora of white facial hair at age 37. Fucking Bleah™

So now I have to keep closely shaved, both face and skull, or at least not let it grow out for more than a few days.

Random Guam Fact Of The Day:
• Who gives a shit about Guam right now? Hell-fucking-oh!! I'm going gray here, dammit!!!!

Hey man, I give a shit about Guam!

And look... if I can have a couple of long, thick, kinky strands of silver at 31 (that I mercilessly seek out and pluck), then you damn well better recognise that you're going to have them at 37! (well, not long and kinky)

Why DO they grow in kinky like that anyway?

DZER said...

mike: my only consolation is that you're OLDER ... heh

jmai: mine aren't kinky ... nice for chulo that yours are though ;)

Oh DZER, we all know that age is a state of mind. I am pretty sure that mentally, you're still as young as you were last week, last month, and even last year! Don't let a few pale hairs worry you. I've been battling them for years! Now they make up the highlights in my hair. LOL Gray hair doesn't absorb color the same way as the not gray, so I have instant blonde highlights! Now the appearance of a gray pube... that was a little more disconcerting, but I've survived! And I don't let hair color make me feel old... I have a teenager for that! xox

Dude, it happens my friend, got 'em popping in on the side of my head like they are going out of style all of a sudden. yeesh.

DZER said...

snow white: I'm a cranky old man! and white hairs stand out on my face!

madame x: heh ... (shutting up)

art: she wokd up on the OLD side of the bed!

oops! I didn't totally shut up! LOL

and gray is all over guam ... just like anywhere else ... and now I'm one of them

Snow White said...

DZER- I'm older than you, and I'm not old, so you're not allowed to refer to yourself as a "cranky old man" 'cause that would make me an "bitchy old woman." And I'm not ready for that yet! ;) xox

37 has been hard on you, sweetie. It's your time to shine and hopefully the white hairs on your jaw won't.

terry said...
