It’s been little more than 36 hours since I shaved off my beard of 15 years, and I’ve already noticed a huge difference. A certain someone used these words to describe how I look now: young, harmless, innocent, not intimidating, less guarded, and vulnerable. Another friend said that he thought my beard gave me magical powers. And I think they’re right. Here are just a few of the differences I’ve noticed between Bearded Adam and Beardless Adam:
|Never had to wait in line because people let him move to the front if he asked.||Has old ladies butt in front of him because they think they can take him.|
|Could easily pass as a lumberjack.||Can’t even pass as an altar boy.|
|Only got hit on by gay men with bear fetishes and women with a thing for beards.||Gets hit on by old women and college-aged lesbians.|
|Could walk, talk, chew gum, and text at the same time.||Can’t even talk to his friends and masturbate quietly simultaneously.|
|Felt comfortable in freezing temperatures.||Gets cold in the movie theater when his chin gets cold.|
|Could fly on a good day.||Can barely jump.|
|Never had anyone make direct eye contact him when he walked through a store.||Has people randomly approach him to ask if everything’s okay and if he’s lost.|
|Started buying beer without ID when he was 14.||Got carded for an R-rated movie.|
|Growled at children and snarled at old people.||Has strangers hand him their babies to hold.|
|Listened to Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, Taylor Swift, and Gwen Stefani.||Oh – no change here.|
|Could lie to Jesus.||Can’t even lie to his gardener, Jesus.|
|Always had friends ask if he was angry or upset.||Has friends ask why he’s about to cry.|
|Put women on a pedestal and considered most men to be brutes.||Cleans the pedestal really well first.|
|Was an elitist pretentious snob who knew that he was smarter than you.||Knows he’s smarter than you but just wants to break it to you nicely.|
|Didn’t wear pants and worked in his underwear.||Would consider a dress.|
|Couldn’t stop playing with his penis.||Can’t stop playing with his chin.|
