I was not up to speed. I had never paid real attention. I just went through the motions and hadn’t had the curiosity I should have had. I’m talking about No Shave November and I’m also talking about Movember.
They are two different things with a similar cause. I was peacefully unaware.
Having had a beard for 15 years and then some variation of facial hair for many years prior, I chose not to pay attention. Facial hair, I get it, I have it I love it. I got a lot of critisism in those dark years of the 1990s when it was anything but cool. So when it suddenly started to take a turn to the mainstream I was happy with the change, but wasn’t part of any movement. Therefore I missed out on the significance of what the month of November was for.
Mens Health. Period.
