To Beard or Not to Beard

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.

the same mistake saw me obtain my first no guard hair cut, but it was my lass who made the error. Her yell of 'OH NO!' was the first hint of the mistake for me.
