i'm no delilah, but...


...how in the world do i go about asking my dear husband to shave off the thing growing on his face without doing it myself in his sleep? the more i tell him i dislike it, the more intent he is on keeping it. the chin part is now all but gone, leaving these two caterpillar-like lines on either side of his jaw. its beginning to give me nightmares. please help!

remove certain priviledges and he may get the hint. If you know what I mean ;)

Ha! Ha! I want Troy to grow a gotee (?) and he REFUSES.

Also, if you guys have lawn chairs could you throw them in your car for Garrett's party? I'm not sure if we'll have a ton of tables where we are planning on being.

Somehow let him believe you when you now change your mind and tell him you LOVE it. Kind of like the briar bush and tar idea.

Evil! I can't believe you women, ya, "you women". A mans facial hair, however sparse and spotchy, is his pride, you can ask, but trickery or coersion is beyond abhorrent. It's like a BBQ, you just don't go there and fiddle with it, definitely don't make fun of it either, but now you will, cause girls are evil deep down in the core. Poor Josh.

No razor should touch Deliah either...hairy legs and armpits coming right up!

What can I say? I like facial hair on men. Still - looking at the gleam in his eyes I'd have to say to you - your married someone full of beans AND you picked him of all the men you could have had :). The nightmares will pass.

I LOVE James' comment.

So how's your pit hair coming. HA HA JILL.

edit - you married, not your married.

we have an agreement, I keep my hair long and he keeps his face hair never beyond a weekend. When I go to Canada he can have a beard or fumanchu or whatever it is that he thinks looks so great that I cannot stand. ugh, face hair is like an automatic -10.

Josh doesn't look creepy though, looks trendy on him. But I totally get the nightmares. I can't stand kissing sandpaper.

chances are he'll get tired of it soon enough and go back to whatever his 'norm' is. I remember when my husband did a chin strap...i was not fond of it, but he had wanted to try it so bad. so he did, and eventually he realized it was too much maintenance (especially for a guy who generally shaves only once a week), and shaved it off.
in the meantime, you could tell him that since he's trying something new, you're going with it and not shaving your legs... :)

kelly said...

uh...now i've actually read the comments and realize the no shaving idea was already mentioned...
my bad.

I thought your husband was a strong Christian. As a Christian husband he is called to die to self, and LOVE his wife and to give himself up for her.
I will be praying for you and him, and that he will realize how he is in rebellion to God's command to husbands. His prayers will not be answered until he repents.
