Are you man enough to enter the "Brotherhood of the Stache?"
So, my birthday was the first day of October, and I figured to celebrate, I'd shave off most of my goatee and keep just the flimsiest part of the facial hair. Yup, I went full on mustache and it lasted for all of a day and a half.
When my brother saw me, he immediately said, "So, are you trying to give the impression that you are a stalker?" I laughed, because I knew it looked incredibly stupid. The best part was seeing people who knew me take it in. They gave me a surprised look and then tried to cover it up as if they hadn't noticed how dumb I looked. People didn't know what to say, so most said nothing. No one complimented it, because it looked ridiculous. Why would they compliment it? I just enjoyed the awkwardness as a birthday present to myself.
So this brings me to my mustache challenge: Can anyone out there sport a worse mustache than me, and live with it for at least 24 hours? If you are brave enough to rock the most unpopular facial hair style going, you will earn a place of great honor. If you choose to take up the challenge, send me a photo and the story, and I'll feature you on Vertically Striped Socks as part of the Brotherhood of the Stache. Are you man enough to look ridiculous?
