"A man without a mustache is like a cup of tea without sugar..."
May 13, 2009
Magnum P.I., John Oates, the Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak, my boyfriend (occasionally) – now, what do these fine gentleman all have in common? Uh huh, they are all mustachios!! My adoration of the mustache can be dated back to my childhood. You see, as a young girl, my life was filled with them – Grandpa Tony, Grandpa Ralph, Dad, Uncle Bob, Uncle Richard and let's not forget my Grandma Josie's "boyfriend" Tom Selleck. Yes, these men all stood tall and proud behind their mustaches, each and every one of them reeking of power, poise and uh… MANHOOD. Oh how I long for the days when every man in my life was accompanied by a thick slab of hair upon their upper lip! In today's world, the mustached man is under appreciated. While the mustache is heartily attempting to reclaim its position on the male face, it continues to be challenged by society. Sadly, ladies fail to recognize the sex appeal of a mustache and men no longer have the cajones to grow them out (whimps). I have not given up on convincing my own male companions to cover up those upper lips, however, the only male to indulge my request is my boyfriend and for that I more than applaud him. Ladies, don't knock ‘em till you smooch ‘em and boys (uh huh, that's right, boys), I dare you, no, I double dare you – handlebar, toothbrush, thick, thin, fu Manchu, Super Mario – bring it on!
