Today, for the first time since I retired 5+ years ago, I wore a face mask. In my professional life I wore them for 4-6 hours at a stretch, and never thought twice about them.
But in retirement, and with Covid social restrictions, I have not shaved for 6 months.
But with the mask on today, because I had passengers in my car, I was obliged to wear a mask.
It was hot, my beard got in the way and was scratchy, and my glasses fogged up. And there will be at least 6 weeks more of this…..
So I decided the growth had to go…..
SWMBO has not commented yet. Maybe she has not noticed. I know that she detested the beard.
