  1. i don’t agree with nathan! I think the only valid staches are on Dad and Grandpa. glad this was a passing thing for you. (c:

  2. Hey, I think it looks (looked) great! It was helped along by the cowboy hat, or maybe vice versa. –Dad

  3. Oh, I am so glad it is gone! It was accompanied by a full beard which I can tolerate for a while. Then went to a mustache and goatee for a few days. The mustache alone only existed for a few hours and I could not bear to look. I am so glad it is all gone now. It has been over a month since I have had a good kiss on the lips. Leaning in for a good poking, scratchy, nose tickling kiss was not my idea of a good time. But I assume most men enjoy a break from shaving every once in a while!

  4. I agree that it may not look bad, simply as a guy with a mustache and a hat. But since it *is* me, I either see it as not-me and can tolerate it, or I see myself in the image and I just have to laugh, because it is really not *me*!

    The mustache thing might be generational. I think it is popular again mostly for the same reasons that trucker hats were, and 80’s garb is: the irony of wearing something that we laugh at. I understand the feeling, thus the photo shoot, but cannot sustain such irony.

    And just so you know Dad, the mustache looks great on you. Cowboy hat too.

  5. Okay, Daniel tells me it was only there for minutes, not hours. I was really trying to ignore the whole process by not looking and losing myself in the crazy antics of Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld.

    Anyway, I heard about this on NPR and was glad to see that, guys, you too can grow a mustache and compete in a “sweetest stache” competition to support children’s charities. So if you have been dying to take a shaving break and need a good excuse to appease the woman in your life, here it is! Have fun!
