This morning I couldn't sleep, so I got up early, made coffee and started shaving. Then my alarm went off. I don't know why I wasn't expecting it, but it did startle me momentarily. Long enough for me to alter my down swipe as I was shaving....and shave off a little too much of one side of my moustache. After shutting off the alarm, I surveyed the damage to my moustache and tried to even it out.
But.........it ended up being just a tad bit too short. Actually, it was more than a little short, it was noticeably short.
I've been wearing a moustache for years.
Whenever I don't have a moustache, I've been told that I look like I have cancer. This morning though, I didn't have many options. I mean, I know it's just hair and it'll grow back.
I wanted to keep my moustache in the worst way.
Truth is though, Adolph Hitler ruined the little moustache for everybody. I can't walk around looking like Der Fuhrer, so I had to shave mine off. I can't wait for it to grow back.
I guess I'll have to do without.
I can't have people walking up to me yelling "Heil Hitler!!!"
