special k has been growing a beard for a couple of months now. A BIG beard.
It’s been fun because I could grab him under the chin in a most satisfying way. It also made him look older and a bit distinguished. It made him husband-k, businessman-k, adult-k.
It also made kissing difficult.
Tonight he finally shaved it off, and as I watched his lips emerge my tummy went weird. It was like seeing the 23 year old I fell in love with suddenly standing in front of me again, and I wasn’t quite prepared.
