Besides being the penultimate month of the year, November is also “Movember“, a campaign where men are encouraged to grow moustaches and raise money in the on-going fight for prostate cancer. I’ve known about the movement for a few years (if you live on the internet, such as myself, it’s impossible to not know about it), and had managed to avoid doing anything about it.
It’s not that I don’t support cancer research — naturally, I do. It was just that I had no particular desire to grow facial hair any more than when I get lazy and don’t shave for a few days. (When you’re trying to get out the door in time to get the bus, you take whatever shortcuts are necessary.) This year, in a desire to have some unity with my fellow Evans-Huntians, I let it start growing out.
Sadly, that’s about as far as I’ve gotten.
