New Day #209

Full disclosure: I've worn a little beard to either hide my double chin from when I was a pudge, or, now that I'm thin, to compensate for what I believe is a weak jaw.

See? Chins should jut out, like Tom Cruise's and the dead Nazi he's playing, not in.

At the urging of the Long Suffering Floyd, I finally decided it looked mangy and I wasn't fooling anybody, anyway, so shaved it off, leaving only the soul patch (a new thing for me).

Sidebar: soul patches came into fashion from jazz trumpet players, who grew them to hide the scars under their lips.

So now I look jazzy. Jazzy and chinless.

And who wants to look like a Nazi or a Scientologist, anyway?

Chins just get in the way of things like eating, kissing and make a great target if someone who is angry at you. Very over rated.

Interesting factoid about the soul patch. Thanks for sharing.

You're very handsome with or without chin-hair-I'm sure Floyd would readily agree!

What do you mean weak jaw? I think you have a very defined jaw. How G.I. Joe of you... haha!

In profile, you look a lot like one of my cousins.
