A slightly older shot of The Prof in his Sunday Best
A Woman I worked with last night confessed that she spied The Prof at the train station recently.
" I gave him a very close inspection " she shared in a stage whisper
" And what did you find out?" I asked her.
" Well! " , she said " He's very....... Hummm V E R Y .......well GROOMED!"
I was suddenly very conscious that my hair was sticking up at the back and that there was a stray coffee stain on the front of my uniform"
" Not a hair out of place on his wonderful moustache ! " she waxed lyrically " and soooo beautifully turned out"
Apparently my husband is , what can be termed as, a " mature hispter"
Another , more straight talking, slightly older nurse overheard the conversation and piped up helpfully
" You're NOT alike are you"
" Afraid not!" I agreed.
I was thinking about this in tescos today...I had just picked a 5 £ t shirt for the Australia trip and I was debating whether to try it on or not.
No one, I thought, would ever call me a hipster , mature or otherwise.
A two tone goatee in a shit t shirt?........it's not a sophisticated look.
Now I kind of like this beard thing that's going on at the moment. Every man I see seems to be sporting some level of facial hair, groomed or otherwise, and it IS interesting to see the fashions rewinding back to those of Edwardian Britain.
Hairy faces suit men I think.......and shhhhhhh don't tell anyone but goatees hide double chins.......
