My good friend Ryan was visiting from Seattle last weekend, and when I first saw him from afar it seemed as though something was subtly different about him. As he got closer I realized that it wasn’t subtle at all and was, in fact, a bit audacious. Awesomely audacious.
I have grown a mustache a time or 2 in my life and have always enjoyed the experience. You get the funniest looks, the most random comments and high fives with a furry upper lip. Needless to say, seeing Ryan’s well-groomed ‘stache was nothing short of inspiring and encouraging to me. He is sacrificing his ability to ever be taken seriously for the celebration of masculinity.
