My hubby and I are the kind of people who finish getting ready at home.
He spends a good portion of the morning on his beard and takes pride in it.
I need to make sure I transform my ‘dragged through a bush’ hairstyle to something much neater. I have been blasé about it a few times and tried tying my hair up in the car. Nope. It looked dreadful and I had to fix it as I walked into the office.
So when I see ladies doing their makeup or kids tying up their hair up in the car, I find it rather fascinating. I watch in awe at their ability to do this on-the-go grooming.
This is mind, let me tell you what happened this morning.
I am taking my daughters to school. We are in the car sitting in the traffic, not moving at the moment.
I glance in my rear view mirror and I see the man behind me brushing his beard.
Obviously, I find this incredibly amusing, so I tell the kids.
They think that this is very funny and both whip around to have a look.
The guy then puts down his brush and suddenly has a lit cigarette in his mouth. I look again and he is drinking coffee. I blink and he is texting on his phone!
“Shew”, I say to the girls “a man that can multitask!”
(Then I had to explain what multitasking was and how men are teased about not being able to do it.)
I said “well, no one’s stopping him from doing it!”
Without a pause, my 6yo says “No one’s going to stop him. He’s too sexy.”
I was dead. We packed out laughing and I blushed all the way to the school.
P.S. In our defense, my hubby sports a thick awesome beard, so we may be biased. 🙂
