I’m happy to welcome in the month of April. This month will bring signs of spring. But, more importantly, it will bring an end the to the torturous “Moustache March,” a terrible tradition among some military men to sport bushy moustaches on their otherwise nicely clean-shaven faces.
Thankfully, Husband did not participate in this tradition. Our neighbor, unfortunately, did. I’m sure this neighbor has a very nice face, but it’s hard to tell, since we’ve only seen him with an outrageous moustache. Same goes for the male church-goers we’ve seen on Sunday at the base chapel.
I’m not against moustaches. Just look at Tom Selleck (aka Magnum, P.I.) Never has a moustache – or a Hawaiian shirt – looked finer.
Maybe I just have a thing for Magnum, P.I. (It’s my dad’s fault for showing me so many episodes of the show when I was a kid.)
Hypothetically speaking, I might have made Husband take a picture of me in front of a “Magnum, P.I” poster when we were in Hawaii. And, he might have complied, after asking repeatedly if it was really necessary. (Of course, it was! Hypothetically, that is.*)
Anyway, so let me be the first to wish you a Happy Moustache-Free April! Unless you are Tom Selleck. In that case, please keep that healthy moustache in April and beyond – and please reconsider my autograph requests.**
* Ok, so it all really happened. I’ll understand if you stop reading my blog.
**I did not really ask Tom Selleck for his autograph, but perhaps I should.
