No Shave November: A December 1st Reflection by Chad “Tough Guy” McCarthy
I was a proud participant of this year’s “No Shave November,” a necessity for any and every good looking dude like me. In the past, I’ve been asked to take place in the annual holiday, yet I never got around to it. To be honest I’m not really sure why bros around ‘merica participate, but I guess it has to do with the cold or something. Definitely provides some much needed heat in the appropriate region, though.
I’d never really been a huge fan of growing out, let alone going an entire month without grooming. I always had questions about how to take care of the mob of hair. Do I buy a comb? Is there a special type of shampoo? Does it get annoying? When I took on the month long challenge, however, it became very clear how easy to maintain, and how good it looks, to have my own “big and curly.” And yes, I did need a special type of shampoo.
The longer November went on, the greater my hairy legacy expanded. For example, on Thanksgiving morning I found a bird nesting in my thick bushiness. It reminded me both that I’m a rugged outdoorsman, but made me ponder whether this forest was getting out of hand and starting to overshadow the beauty that surrounds it.
My bros frequently ask me “Yo Chad, you ever think of shaving now that November’s done?” I’m always caught off guard; I can’t even imagine my life anymore without it. However, I’ve thought about it a lot and I think I’m gonna shave my initials into it. I’ve seen people do it on the sides of their head, not sure why it won’t work for me. I just hope that when I’m shaving “Chad Wuz Here,” I don’t cut my dick.
