Manly Man

nat scherenImage via Wikipedia"I haven't had one shaving cut," announced the young man formerly known as Elmer*.

He's only shaved once. But the 6'2", 200 lb 14-year-old is the picture of young manhood. The peach fuzz covering his cheeks and chin was getting out of control, so after a few day's urging, he took razor to cheek and did the deed.

Today he picked up shaving gel; "I'd better get two cans," he announced, "I'll be shaving again tonight."

"Shaving what?" I wondered, but did not say.

Because he is no longer *Elmer, the tween Looney Toons fan who wanted a pseudonym like MamaEdge's boys, Taz and Rocky. He is now Dude McDude; Dude, for short, a whisker-growing, deep-voiced, young man.

  1. He shaved again, last night and this morning.

  2. Ah, shaving. I've now got two (reluctant) shavers in the house. Can't believe Dude is 6'2"!

  3. Just wanted to stop by and wish you and Dude the happiest of holidays and many blessings in the New Year! Hope the shaving's going well! xo
