In life there are certain things that are best not asked and left well alone. For example, as a man we are never expected to ask a Woman her age, and heavens forbid should we ever try to guess, even if we're asked to! And when asked certain questions like 'Does my butt look big in this?' the answer must always be 'No'. But there are also certain questions that us bearded fellows get asked way too often, and if we had a choice we'd much prefer it if you didnt! So, today here's a short list of a 4 Questions You Shouldn't Ask A Bearded Man...
HAVE YOU ALWAYS HAD A BEARD?
If you're asking if I was born with my marvelous beard, the answer is obviously, Nope. A baby with a beard does seem like a rather interesting (and somewhat brilliant!) combination though. Although I like to think me and my beard have this special, unbreakable bond. Like we come as a package and are as one, and will continue to grow old and grey forever together.
ARE YOU MORE ATTRACTIVE WITHOUT YOUR BEARD?
Oh yeah lady, If you dig the twelve year old naked face schoolboy look then you're in for a treat! But with me having no intention of raising a razor to my face ever again we need not tread down this risky little road. So, however you view it, that question does seem rather pointless don't ya think?
CAN I TOUCH YOUR BEARD?
Now, the thing that tends to grind my gears when it comes to people asking to touch the beard is nine times out of ten the person asking this has usually already began touching the beard, in turn rendering their question pointless. I'm not a huge fan of strangers touching my beard, be it at the bar, at the football or anywhere for that matter. Although I'm fully aware beards are awesome and have that touchable magnetism about em, please consider the dude behind the beard before grabbing a handful of facial gruff in the future.
WHY IS YOUR BEARD SO GINGER?
I used to get asked this all too often in the earlier stages of growing out my beard. And without sitting down and giving a half an hour lecture there's little point in me even trying to explain why my beard is ginger in comparison to my hair. If I'm in a smart ass mood I usually quickly fire something back in return like 'I dunno, why are your eyes so close together?' A little immature I know, but I love giving them a little something to go away and chew on in return.
