CAROLYN’S DAILY POSTS: 2011
MY HOMEGROWN SANTA
I kept hearing my husband say he was tired of shaving.
“So don’t,” I said. “Grow a beard.”
He wasn’t so anxious to do so, but in mid-summer the straggly growth began. By October he was being asked if he planned on portraying Santa Claus this Christmas.
His beard is full-grown now, and has been barber-shop shaped for the holidays. And yes, I like it. He’s sometimes hesitant, but I hope he keeps it after the season.
Then he won’t have to shave and I won’t hear his complaints.
