    KBBAW: When Hubby shaved his furry face clean (except for the remaining mustache) when we first started dating, I didn’t know who he was for a moment. :)

    He finally gave up the mustache a few months after we married. Now he’s a clean-shaven, adorably handsome, intelligent, and funny man.

    CK, I’m OK, just chocolate-less and car-less for a little while this afternoon.

    I think you should copy the second part of your comment 292 and paste it in an email to your honey. You could get seriously rewarded for that. (If ya know’m sayin’)

    Give in to it Henry…
    Embrace it…

    Coming out of working/lurking to say that for a fundraiser I ordered homemade peanut butter eggs and a (white chocolate) bunny and they were just delivered to my office. Susie, one of the eggs has your name on – here you go!

    WOAH! that is fab-u-loso! THank you for sharing your life, dooce! Reading this every day brightens my yechy law student mornings!

    perhaps an odd observation, but jon’s fingernails are so CLEAN! my husband is a service manager for fedex ground and perhaps you could not believe all the dirt and filth he brings home with him. his fingernails are perpetually dirty, and his hands have a fine layer of brown to them – no amount of lava soap makes a difference.

    it’s disturbing.

    and on the subject of chocolate, i just ate a chocolate-caramel POP TART. i took one bite, made googly eyes at its creamy filling, and said “hey there, pop tart. where have YOU been all my life?” then i just smeared the rest of that creamy filling on my hips (since they’ll end up there any way).

    I had never seen my husband without at least a moustache on his face, and usually a full beard.
    Well, he decided to shave it all off one morning when we’d been married a year or two, and he had the nerve to do it without consulting me first.
    He walked into the bedroom, and I was just waking up, and didn’t have my glasses on (the Four-Eyes thing is no joke), and as I opened my bleary eyes, I was positive Jim’s brother was coming into the bedroom in his underwear while I was in there naked.
    I must’ve jumped a mile off the bed, ’cause Jim couldn’t stop laughing for like five minutes. Dude, I’d never seen his naked face! Freaked me right the fuck out!

    Once I got used to it, though, I have to admit that it takes about 10 years off his appearance.

    Does Leta still recognize Daddy?

    Random Question: Hey you guys, if I opened a liberal/organic cool anti-Victorian B&B in Kansas City do you think that would be marketable?

    i love a man with a nose that says, “YEA. RIGHT HERE.”

    Ooooh… how YOU doin’!

  • http://www.kempland4u.com/ Gooooder

    what do you mean by anti-victorian?

    also, organic would be marketable, to those who could afford it. but it personally is not appealing to me. i find the whole organic thing nice for those of us who can afford it. but, other than that pfffft. poop is organic.

    OK, by anti-Victorian, I just mean that the design and visual appeal would be different from most B&B’s you see in the midwest. I prefer something more modern or eclectic to appeal to a younger crowd.
    A friend suggested I should have a veggie garden out back where guests could pick their own breakfast/dinner ingredients.

    Whoah! I’m flicking back and forth between the photos, and Leta looks just like her dad! Maybe you knew that.

  • Marti

    you are a delight.

    Wow! Scrumptious, bearded or not.

    You are one lucky lady Dooce.

    My dad had a full beard until I was like 15. He never shaved it. He just got the usual trim. So when he shaved it off it was a shock. It was like suddenly this man in my house was not my father. I couldn’t look at him for days without going into shock all over again.

    Now I can barely imagine him with the beard.

    Thanks saralynnmo, you may learn some bad habits too. ;-)

    Burdanilex: my dad did the same thing to me, only I saw him thru the window on the floor watching tv in his underwear. I came home from school and it scared me so bad that I wouldn’t go in the house. It was only him and me at the time, and he had parked his truck out back. He wasn’t suppose to be home. He laughed all night about that one.

    saralynnmo – i live in the midwest too, (MO, actually) but the contemporary stuff isn’t that appealing to me. Would you be marketing towards people already in the midwest or for those visiting from elsewhere?

    Lookin’ good, Jon!

    I had my first Dooce dream last night! I showed up at your house (you lived in my town) and played with Leta and talked to you about dogs and stuff. And then one of my shelter dogs showed up and you adopted her!

    greenthumb ~ I am so glad my Dad talked shaving his beard for days before he actually did it. I probably would have thought he was an intruder otherwise. Although he did laugh for a couple days over the look on my face when I saw him.
