At one point during our 2 1/2 years of long distance dating, Brandon sent me a text message with a picture attached. I don’t have that picture on my phone (that must have been 4 phones ago), but it’s still in my mind. He had been shaving his beard but saved the mustache because he knew how much I loved (read: very strongly disliked) the mustache.
Now, four phones later and much to my dismay (and yes, I’ll admit it, amusement), mustaches are in. Not just in like “Hey look that Uncle Rico wanna-be” in, but in like “I just found a mustache salt and pepper shaker” in. No joke.
In fact, the craze right now seems to be the “‘Stache Bash” or “Mustache Bash”. Now, as much as I dislike mustaches, I really do like parties. I also like music and I like female art. Combine all of the above, and you get something as stupendous as the Female Art Collective’s Mustache Bash coming up this weekend (Dec. 5) at the New Albanian Brewing Company in New Albany, IN. And there is even going to be some kind of a prize for the best mustache.
