the face, the lips

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.

    aww…
    Hehe, Beard-state always used to be normal for Ken. I think he was born with a ‘tash and Goatee 😉
    Shame about the moustache, though. That was truely epic!

    I, on the other hand, have been struggling for two years and have only recently achieved a small beard with any volume to it at all 😛
