Now this was unexpected. I've had that beard for about 20 years, and I hadn't planned on taking it off. Yesterday I started to trim it with the electric razor I've used for the last seven or eight years, and after a couple of passes on the right side I saw that something was wrong: the razor was cutting off the hairs at the skin instead of couple of centimeters above. After a moment of mild shock I realized there was nothing for it but to go ahead with cutting the beard off completely. When I was done I called ahead to Eva to warn her to be prepared for a change before I walked into the room she was in. It took her a while to take in the disappearance of all that facial hair.
