I realize that I have some white hair on my sideburns. I've noticed this before, but now that I'm growing a beard I see that on one side it is actually a long white streak going down the side of my face and up to my temple. And only on one side. I'm like a sideways skunk.

Having hair has always been more important to me than the color of it, so I've never really worried about this so much and still don't, but it is a curious little phenomenon! The streak seems to be growing.


  1. I'm starting to get what one would describe as "peppered with gray" hair. Gack. I guess I agree with you that it's better to have hair at all, but geesh, I'm not sure I'm too pleased about this gray stuff...

  2. Ahem! I am sure I will have enough black-n-blue hair dye for any other folk less-than-happy with their natural hue! Contact me after Christmas care of Old, Chalsfont, England. Let's do this thing!

  3. Andy, are you going to post pictures on your blog of the Black-n-Blue Beard Experiment?

  4. Well, I think after such build-up, it would be a crime not to! So, I say YES! I will!
