I’ve been trying the whole mustache thing out for the past few weeks as well. There wasn’t much of an inspiration—I just felt too awful to shave when I was sick with the flu a while back, so I didn’t, and I decided to run with it. I’ve never really tried in earnest to grow and keep a mustache before, so it’s a slightly new experience. At first I really hated it, but after about a week and a half it was a lot more comfortable (less uncomfortable). Right now it’s fairly short, as I’m keeping it trimmed… somewhere between Mexican Stereotype Mustache and Child Molester Mustache. I’ve never been much of a fan of the mustache, but as long as it stays away from those two extremes I don’t mind. I don’t know how long I’ll keep it, but it certainly is convenient not having to shave my upper lip.
