Mustache Dashes, Crashes, and Establishes

Ok, so hopefully this week will get me back in the blogging spirit. I have the next 2 Fridays off at my 2nd job, which means that I'll be looking to get into some action. I still owe Trizzy a dare of talking to two darker skinned ladies, so I'll attempt to fulfill that over the next 2 weekends. Speaking of dares, TTD dared me to shave my mustache off.


I've been enamored with facial hair since I was about 13, the age when some guys get a lil peach fuzz on their chin or the sides of their face or upper lip. At that age I thought that all men had the capabilities of growing mustaches and beards and goatees, but it wasn't until I got into my late teen years that I found out that its all hereditary like everything else with our physical appearance. My boy Lil One is 27 and can barely grow 5 strands on his chin. He still looks like he did when we were in high school.

"You no mustache havin'/with whiskers like a rat compared to Beans you wack" - Nas, to Jay-Z on the song Ether.

Remember the episode of The Cobsy Show when Theo and Cochroach when out on dates and drew in mustaches? Cliff said "I hope it doesn't rain". LOL. That was me. I used to sit in the mirror when I was 14 or 15 and draw facial hair on myself. I used to pray to God that one day I could grow facial hair like my father. I even went as far as taking Tribulus Territris pills because it I read that it boosts your testosterone.

Whether it worked or not, who knows, but I'm pretty much happy with my facial hair. I like to do different things with it, whether it's to go with a pencil thin look and watch it grow back, or go with my most recent look, which is thick along with the soul patch and goatee. I can even grow sideburns if I wished, but doing so causes my face to break out and it took me too damn long to get my face right from bumps.

So to TTD, I won't be shaving the mustache now, however, if you all remember back around April and May of this year when I had to go to court, I said that I shaved all of my facial hair to look young and innocent in front of the judge, and I took a few pics of me in the babyface. So enjoy and laugh at my expense, like Missy did.

With facial hair:

On another note, I wonder if you all can tell in the difference in my face after losing weight. The pic without the hat is from July of 2005, while the pic of me with the hat was from just last weekend.

Without *gasp*

I had more but not only is my phone acting up, but I've been trying to put these pics on Blogger all day, so this is good enough. Yall get the picture, literally.

Thanks for Reading,

Robert Mack

Whoa! You look like a completely different person...but the facial hair on you is um....yeah, I'll keep that to myself. ;o) And uh, I just had to tell you that my son's mustache is very noticeable as a 6th grader, but my family genes are like that. They were kinda born with a 'stache. LOL That probably didn't make you feel any better about your lack of at his age, huh? My bad...LOL

@ Mr Mack

I was just about to ask where ur clothes were in those pics but someone beat me to the punch....maybe u should have aimed the phone a lil lower...LOLOL....just kidding....partly

And I love a man in a baseball cap....

LOL do you really think I would have some pics like that roaming around? I think I took a pic of the piercing a long time ago but I dont know where they are...and what girl didnt have a crush on BJ? I had this jersey and everything :-) Really he's on ESPN? What time? Now I have a reason to watch ;-)

Oh yeah, Mack: You look marvelous with or without the whiskers and nubs. You strangely resemble actor Morris Chestnut to some degree in the pics with the white shirt on.

Got good news, too! I'm down a whopping fifteen pounds now, and at least ONE of my chins is gone, too, LOL. I'ma post some pics later in the week so you can see the difference... I can def see the difference in your pics.

Youre so crazy!! Tell me what youre really thinking...LOL!!!

I've only done the babyface like that twice in the last 6 years. If I get into the acting, I may have to do it again

Yep...I've lost as much as about 18 so can I read some comments on your blog?

JoJo D
LOL! Come on now, don't act like you don't know that I got that from Snoop!
Hoepfull ill be your town really around thanksgiving.

Divine Lavender
Thanks babe! Oh I got the email too, I was just extremely busy and I forgot to respond back..

Is that good or bad that I look like your vice principal. Did you want any detention?

Baby that was 6 months ago when I had to go to court. Besides you broke up with me when you recruited The Freshman. LOL...
I remind you of Mr Marcus or something in the hat?
LOL @ The Wire..Missy told me I looked like some killer dude from NY..

LOL! You are crazy... I like your new blog...Come pounce on me, we could say Fuckaroni together..LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah its more oval than rounded. People have been asking me if I lost weight (without them knowing I was on a diet), and they said they could see it in my face but I could not tell until I compared the pics..I know why you like men in hats...see what I said to Nika..

Man I felt bad for you when you donned the babyface a month back or so and I was gonna post the pic then. I look like a lame huh?

Thanks babe...and its cool on the "favor"...

I got the next 2 fridays off from the 2nd job...

Tiger and Tenacious
I tried to photoshop a shirt on, but it didnt come out right so I just said eff it

Tenacious, Nsane and Isis
Just call me Mr MackSus Get it???

well send them to me. LOL. I wont show no one else..You believe me?

Jo Jo
Ok, that's what I'm talking about...did you see the Bears game last night, Charles Barkley said he lost like 30 some pounds and he did look better...still big, but not as big..They said I looked like that boxer (I cant think of his name now but Nika likes him a lot) when I didnt have any facial hair.

LOL..tell me about it....I guess I'm letting it grow out now because once I do the acting thing, you know that they want you to look as young as possible, so I'll probably have to have a babyface or a very thin mustache anyway come January...
