I returned from my sabbatical with some long facial hair action. It looked nasty enough that couple of our church staff walked into my office for what they called “an intervention.” They said I was setting a bad example for the men in our church… In short, they were trying to sensitively say that I looked nasty. I personally think I’m looking pretty manly, rugged, and Northwestish…if I may say so.
But the truth is I’m at a crossroads. There’s no in between. Either I’ll go completely clean or go long beard and grow out my hair really long as in my past couple pseudo Nazarite vow episodes. And when I grow out my hair, it looks pretty scary. I go grunge or alternative/indie like this:
What do you think? What should I do? Clean or rugged?
And for what it’s worth, it really doesn’t matter what the polls decide…Minhee will lay down the law soon and her wish is my command. But I’m playing a little stubborn right now.
* And to my bald readers, nothing personal. If I looked as great as you, I’d go bald too. 🙂
