I've been growing my beard out over the past few weeks, which has caused a bit of a stir at school. The students oooh and awhhh when I walk into class, with mixed reaction. It seems the girls think I'm more handsome without it, and the boys think it's cool. I ran into an English teacher (ET) at my school today that I hadn't seen in a while, and this is how the conversation went.
Me: Hi, how are you?
ET: Fine thanks. Your face hair is getting, um, a little big?
Me: Haha, not too big yet.
ET: Are you Catholic or something?
Me: No, but it keeps my face warm.
ET: OK, goodbye.
