Well we’re just about at the end of week one in my quest for a moustache and as you can see I’m going ‘lip and side bars’ – Come on!!!
Now people, I wouldn’t want you to think that this raising awareness doesn’t cost, it does. There has been a heavy price to pay in my quest for understanding with regard to Prostate & Testicular Cancer. What is it you ask. Let me tell you…
You’ve heard me ‘wax lyrical’ about the other half of me. The more beautiful, intelligent and amazing half. Just thinking about her makes me feel warm inside :-D. Yes, I’m talking about Jan.
Jan IS wonderful, however, she hates and I mean Hates with a capital ‘H’ my facial grooming. She’s offered to pay me double what I expect to raise in funds for charity if I shave off the ‘tash’. I’ve tried to explain that it’s not all about money, it’s about ‘getting the message out there’ and having this on my face enables me to speak to people and do what it says on the tin, raise awareness. Sadly she doesn’t seem to understand and has sent an edict (nice word) from on high. It goes something like this…
“Thou shalt not kiss me whilst you have that thing on your face!”
Now for a full blooded male who loves his wife, this is a bitter pill to swallow. One whole month without kissing the face, nay, the lips of my angel of beauty. Seriously, I don’t know how I will survive.
More than ever before guys, I need your support. This is going to be my toughest test to date. Forget cake. Forget pie. Forget burgers, fries and peanut butter & jam (jelly) sandwiches. Even forget chocolate. I hope and pray, for the sake of testicles everywhere, I am able to stay strong, remain kiss-less and thus keep that blade away from my face until Movember 30th.
Stay with me guys. Keep me strong. Testicles (and Prostates) across the world are depending on you.
