So, last Tuesday I snipped off part of my beard. Then I snipped off some more. Then some more, etc. There's plenty of beard still left, but it's a mere remnant of its former unshorn glory. Here's the surprising thing: NOBODY'S BLOODY SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT IT!
First I thought that they just didn't notice. So I snipped off some more. By now, there's no way you can't tell that my beard has undergone some heavy surgery. So why is everyone pretending that nothing happened? If you have an issue, spit it out. We'll discuss it. Don't just ignore what you don't like. Do I intimidate you? Are you scared of what the answer is going to be?
Fact check: a few people did comment, but these are but a tiny fraction of all those who have seen my partially bearded face.)
UPDATE: So far two people have asked me straight out what's up with the beard or lack thereof. One person has asked, but only after considerable deliberation. We'll keep you posted on this developing story!!
