maurice’s journey

March 5, 2013

we have a new member in our family.
well, he’s not that new. he’s been around since november 8th of last year.
lots of you have seen him around, and he is growing much faster than our kids.
that’s right. maurice is chris’ beard.
we, no, i decided to give it a name because it is big and crazy enough to warrant one. it eats as much, if not more than the kids do, so it’s a part of our family.
i chose maurice cause chris has a distate for the french and i feel similarly towards maurice. but i don’t hate him. i could just live without him. maurice. not chris.
i get lots of questions about maurice, so i thought i would give him his own blog post today and give you some frequent Q&A regarding him:
-Q: why is chris growing maurice?
A: because he can.
but, i need to remind my husband that
“Everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial.” 1 Cor 6:12
-Q: does chris have to grow maurice for work?
A: no.
the other day he bought some couches off of craigslist, and the house he went to happened to be occupied by people who had a history of narcotic abuse. we know this because the lady looked at chris, shared that her husband was going to be down in a second but was upstairs throwing up. chris asked her what her husband was on, and she said anti-depressants, but he used to be on everything. chris made a comment that made it sound like he was a drug abuser too, and she said: “yeah, i got that vibe from you.”
Q: when is chris going to shave again?
A: november 8th, 2013.
the last time a razor touched his face was on the same day in 2012 and he said he wanted to grow his beard for  a year. now, come november 8th, chris will shave
BUT he might just shave a bit and have a goatee WHICH happens to be my favorite look on him
BUT he says he is not planning on trimming the goatee, it will just be as long as the beard gets but be a goatee. i don’t think that’s going to be a better option… we’ll see
Q: is chris going to donate maurice to Locks of Love?
A: people who have lost their hair due to chemo have already suffered enough.
why on earth would we make them suffer more by having to wear maurice on their head????
that would be the definition of cruel and unusual punishment.
here are pictures of maurice’s journey thus far:
