We've arrived at the midpoint of NaBloPoMovember 2012, and after 15 days of Utter Follicular Neglect, I've managed to come up with this:
The inspirational elements are pretty basic, because one of my first priorities was to shave off all the gray bits. From there, a little Guy Fawkes emerged. But mostly, it's inspired by ferocious French taunting.
As a bonus (and evidenced by the face on the right), I can make it look like a "T for TwoBert." Who, because of this, will undoubtedly launch a whole lot of French taunting at his older brother.
This is my third go-round with Movember (you can read about Years One and Two), and it's been gratifying to see the funds and awareness increase so dramatically. In 2010, I had to explain my mustache to almost everyone who commented on it; now, mustaches are almost as commonly expected in November as are N.Y. Giants losses.
If you're inclined and able, I'd be grateful if you'd donate whatever you can to the Dad 2.0 Summit / NYC Dads Group team to help promote awareness of and research into curing prostate and testicular cancers. All funds go to LiveStrong and the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
With luck, in the future there will be less opportunity to make castanets out of our testicles, already.
