I have a love-hate relationship with beards. I think beards look great on a lot of guys. Yet, I have never been able to successfully grow one. It’s not about getting through the itchy phase, although I’ll admit that phase is a huge pain in the face. It’s the fact that my facial hair grows out like steel wool and never gets soft and cuddly. It’s very annoying. I end up looking like a deranged lunatic, and not because I’m out in public with no pants on.
