Heil Hitler!!!

  Dammit!!!!
 
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!!!"
Dammit!!!

  1. Just returned from "Heil Hitler Land" ... it's still the land of the unforgiven ... they have been bending over backwards for over 60 years now, paying for everything left and right... as for your 'stouche ... don't worry about it ... it'll grow :) Love, cat.

    1. The Germans aren't the first people to follow someone on a path of destruction.....but their reputations were deserved. Anytime genocide is on the agenda, people tend to hold a grudge.

      Yeah, I know it'll grow back.....in a couple of weeks it will look as if nothing happened.

    2. Anywhere you hear English, French or Spanish spoken? be knowing that some genocidal shit went down there. The Nazis were playing catch up. European fcuks!

      lol @cancer looking. I'm always undecided, 'tache or no tache. depends on my mood

      ps: I'm still live, just digitally under that radar

    3. This is true Chrome, this is true.

      I've had a 'stache so long that I don't know how to kick it without it. But.....I'm gonna leave it shaved off for the next couple of weeks or so and see if I can get used to it.

  2. I snickered at this just a little...it's only hair though, it'll grow back. Gee, did you really have to attach all of those darn pictures?!

    1. Hey I just love finding pictures for my blog posts Crystal.

      I wish that I had thought to both write this post and take a picture while I was channeling Hitler.....but I didn't think about it until after I finished shaving my face.

  3. Aww.. never mind Reggie, sure it looks okay. Although.. a man without a tash can look like a completely different man when your accustomed to seeing him with one...many look alot younger. Men and facial hair.. some look cool.. other not so. I'm less used to women with moustaches and beards...
    That cat picture is quite funny!
    Cool post early bird.

    2. So did I...and I agree about the picture. Don't be shy Reg....lol

    3. I'm not shy, I just sometimes wonder if I'm not overexposed on this blog.

      I was thinking there needed to be less pictures of me and more stupid pictures. Still, I wish I had thought to take a picture of myself with the Hitleresque 'stache.

  5. Well apparently Michael Jordan hasn't gotten the memo. Lol. He has a Hitler 'stash.

  6. I'm sure it looks fine. I would like to see a picture--a with hair and without hair comparison. Nice to see you around!

    1. I wish that I had thought to take a picture. Maybe once it grows back I will.

      It's good to be seen No Labels.

  7. My dad has always had a 'stache. I remember asking my mom if she's ever seen him without it, and she hasn't. My first boyfriend had a 'stache. One night while I was asleep, he shaved it off. He came into the bedroom and woke me up, and for a second I thought there was a stranger in the bedroom and flipped out. He looked utterly ridiculous without it. I've noticed that some men NEED a mustache. They have too much skin (like my ex) between their lip and nose. It ends up looking really weird. All that space and nothing to fill it.. I'd say to rock a fake one, but not only would that be even more ridiculous, I figure by the time you found a good realistic one, your caterpillar would already be back keeping your upper lip warm.

    1. You know what...........maybe I will leave it off for a while LakiSwirl?!?

    2. I haven't seen you with or without one, so for all I know you can rock facial hair the way Denzel can and be hot either way. Some guys are lucky like that. Only a few men actually need a mustache. If you can fit more than two fingers between your nose and upper lip, it's probably best to hide that barren stretch of land with some hair. I'm sure you're fine :)

    3. LakiSwirl I'd never heard of the two finger rule. But I do know that my lip feels pretty bare.

      But I'm gonna keep this look for a couple of weeks or so.

  8. LMAO @ Hitler ruining the little moustache for everybody. Men with facial hair are HOT, so I hope it grows back really soon.

    1. Oh I know it'll grow back Queen, but I'm seriously thinking of leaving it off for awhile.

      .......or maybe not?!?

    1. Thanks Angie, but my face feels rather strange.....and I don't look like the same dude in the mirror.

  10. It's very effortless to find out any matter on net as compared to books, as I found this piece of writing at this web site.

    Have a look at my web blog - Sessel mit Aufstehhilfe *http://unityforachange.org/cooperativemedia/groups/echte-sessel-mit-aufstehhilfe*

  11. What did your coworkers say when you walked in without it?

    1. Interestingly enough, hardly anyone said anything BayouCreole. One mentioned towards the end of the day that I looked different, but couldn't put her finger on it.

      I guess my moustache wasn't particularly memorable.

  12. I now have a full beard so work with what you got

    1. Big Mac I don't think I could go with a full beard. I think I'd probably scratch my face constantily if I had a full beard. Years ago I kept a goatee and that itched like the devil at times.

  13. Hi Reggie! Have you grown it back yet, or are you leaving it off?

    1. No, it's still bare. One day I might grow it back, but it's really starting to "not grow" on me so to speak. I like the feel of my bare lip.

      Delete
  14. That's sort of funny. Surely it has grown back by now?

    1. Actually I wrote this post on August 5th, today is August 22nd and my lip is still clean shaven.

      The bare lip is starting to grow on me.

  15. I shaved off all facial hair and hair on my head as my way of protesting to being deployed years ago. I have been told by several ladies that the look suits me, so I have been hairless..except for eyebrows ever since..But yes..during that little protest of mine...the eyebrows went to... Never again Reggie...never again. I tried growing my mustache back a while ago..but I looked like a damn old 70's porn star...so my lip is naked and proud in all its glory.

    1. Dirty Red I wrote this post three weeks ago.......clearly that's a sign that I need to write another post; but my face remains shaven. I'm actually starting to get used to it. The eyebrows are off the table. If I didn't have eyebrows I'd probably look like a mutant. I take enough heat for my fair skin and hazel eyes. I don't want to go completely lizard.

      Wait a minute.....is there something wrong with the pornstar look?!? Did that go out of style?!?

      Maybe it did for you and me both?!?

  16. Yeah.. I feel ya. Rollin like Hitler is NOT Shit-ler. Another cure is to wear it neat & trim, like dudes did back in the 30s & 40s. Check out vintage Clark Gable flicks or Google "1930s-40s leading men images" for some inspiration.

    Just a suggestion.

    Meanwhile, hope you're enjoying the book.

    One.

    1. I enjoyed your book, I read it last month.

      You know usually I will post a lot more often than I have since I wrote this, but it's been a hectic month for me. A lot of traveling and a lot of stuff going on in my life.

      I'll post again soon.

      But.........I've actually kept the shaved lip look. I haven't grown another moustache and I'm not sure I will again anytime soon.

    1. Ya know, I've actually kept mine off. My face has been shaved for awhile now and I've gotten used to it. I'd had a moustache for more than 25 years and just like that....it's gone.

    2. My condolences to you for your loss of the stache...

      I love goatees on men as well.

      Delete
    3. At one point in my life I kept a goatee for years. I loved mine.

      My moustache has slowly returned, but I find the thought of shaving it off rather easy.

    1. I had an easy time of it really, because I had a lot of help from people that I used to work with............and one that works in my current office.

      This past weekend I finally finished getting my apartment together. I found an apartment a half mile from the office that I'm working in...........I can walk to work now.

      I'm just glad that this move is over.
