It wasn't until someone else commented on his appearance that I realized the significance of the little cut above his lip.
He'd cut himself shaving.
His goatee was gone.
Now, I fully admit that I'm not always the most observant person. But not noticing his facial hair was no more? Pretty bad, even for me.
(Although my husband will sometimes tell people he's shaved his mustache when they ask why he looks different. He hasn't had a mustache since before we met. He might have worn his contacts instead of glasses that day, though.)
Coworker is starting to grow back his goatee already. And I, for one, am glad. How else am I supposed to recognize him? Erm, except for those times I don't even notice the facial hair - or lack thereof.
Your thoughts - beards? Goatees? Mustaches? Five o'clock shadow? Or no facial hair at all?
