Movember first caught our attention when Sam Brunson over at Times And Seasons announced he'd shaved his beard of two-and-a-half years. Then, we watched GUYDE's Movember Edition, reminding us to check our balls (medically speaking, of course). Finally, after receiving a guest post from Marcus, we knew we could ignore Movember no mo.
The Shields Riot, where he updates his readers on the family's travels, humor, thoughts and other meaningless adventures. You can read Marcus' first guest post here or check out his Movember page here.
This is my first year participating in this great cause and I am sure I will be doing it every year from here on out. (Although my wife might have another opinion about this) Now that I can actually grow a moustache, I feel like it is my duty and responsibility to participate and to help others become aware of what is happening with men's health.
I have been growing my moustache for almost two weeks now and it is definitely noticeable. It is great to see people's reactions when they notice it. Some people will take a second look, while others will straight up ask me, "What's with the moustache?" Last weekend I attended a fancy-schmancy Political Gala in Salt Lake City, where a gentleman in his freshly rented tuxedo straight up asked me why I had a moustache and if my wife liked it. I told him about Movember and what it means and that my wife did not condone the stash, but was still supportive. He was very intrigued and fascinated and will hopefully be participating next week and I hope you will too!
