I don't know all the details, but in it--get this--my mustache had super-powers!! Her memory is a little foggy on everything my facial adornment was able to do, but she assures me I was definitely picking locks with it! Yusss.
This is perfect timing. Our poll on who has the better handlebar mustache is a dead heat (9-9 at the time of writing) with only 5 days left to vote. But this discovery is bound to push me over the top. My mustache has super-powers!
In other mustache news
- After nearly two months of mustachery, on Saturday night, 'lil Stachey received his first unequivocal compliment from a female, who was both sober and sane thankyouverymuch. Thanks Danae!
- Compliments from males come daily. Also on Saturday night, in a bar, the dude sitting at the table next to me leans over and says, "I apologize in advance if you catch me staring at your mustache. That is truly a thing of magnificence." I'm not telling you all this to toot my own horn (believe me, the sleaziness of it is not lost on me) but I can't go out without being bombarded with comments like this from dudes and looks of minor disgust from the ladies.
What is it about a mustache that so polarizes men and women?
Some names I have been called
Jeff Foxworthy (by middle school boys on the school bus)
Or my favorite: A little girl, maybe 6 years old, steps onto my school bus, looks at me, pauses, and says, "You look like a thief." Ha!
Some things to ponder in the comments
What would my super hero name be? I suggested The 'Stache in the title. But I also like Mustache Man and the more discreet Hairy Locksmith. Should the mustache itself have a name too?? Who's my nemesis?
You can also tell me if you're completely sick of me talking about my facial hair. I can't help it. Beards and their cousins are way too fun. Maybe I should start a separate blog.
