The other day, someone in the Wallyhood home office (okay, there really is no home office) pointed out this article about growing a moustache in November.
This set off an idle train of thought about how handsome moustaches look on some guys. To wit:
(Okay, the last one, not so much.) Still the vision of a Wallingford peopled with newly-moustached guys was enticing, so I contacted Spin the neighborhood barber who is promoting the event to ask what we at Wallyhood could do to make this vision a reality.
Spin stepped up to the plate and offered a free haircut to the reader who registered on the Movember site, made a donation of any size to the cause of prostate cancer research and posted the best photo of their “mo” there (if you join the cause you must use this terminology because it began in Australia and that’s how they talk).
Then, leave a comment on this post with the name of your team, if any, (the “Spin’s Barbershop” team rocks) along with your first name and last initial. At the end of the month, Spin will peruse the entrants on Movember and pick the most impressive “mo”.
I’ve already succeeded in talking my husband into joining Spin’s team. He hasn’t shaved since last Saturday and has already got a full upper lip (alas, he is too shy to appear on this post, besides who wants to be compared with Tom Selleck?). Other benefits of a “mo”?:
- Freak out your in-laws at Thanksgiving
- Do something productive with the time you save not shaving
- Keep your face warm during the upcoming early winter
- Really wow the ladies
On a serious note, the site is full of great information about promoting men’s health and your fledging mo will become a walking advertisement for that very worthy cause.
