Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Friday, August 27, 2021

When I recounted my beard-shaving incident, I neglected to mention one point of minor concern.

The day before I lost the goatee, I had managed to charm a cute little Aveda girl out of her phone number. (I met her in my company’s cafeteria, while we were both waiting for a sandwich — what a world.) I was going to call her tonight to see about doing something this weekend, maybe a movie.

Now, though, I admit I’m a little hesitant. In a way, I sold her a bill of goods by having facial hair when I met her, and showing up without it (or really, with a slight bit of stubble) could be offputting. I know she liked the goatee, because she commented on it a couple of times during the 10 minutes we chatted.

I was hoping to run into her again this week, so she could see the new look in a casual setting. No dice. I would just toss the number and take a chance on running into her again some other time, but….

Maybe I’ll just wait until next week to call her.

    Costa’s still blogging about the right things, including the dating ethics that surround a shaved-off goatee….
