So I recently made a deal with my students that if they would promise to try their best on the STAR examinations that I in turn would allow them to design my beard and come to school one day with the design that they had voted upon. My students voted for a half-beard. So, this past Monday I made a fool of myself and came to work with half of my face shaven. Needless to say, observing the one class of students that does test with me. . . all of my students have the appearance of making an honest effort on the exam.
For those of you that are curious as to what type of ugliness exists with a half-beard (and let me be the first to admit that it is quite ugly), you may view the aberration below. I must forewarn you, however, that by looking at these images, you may have nightmares. As such, I include this disclaimer that I am not responsible for anyone soiling the bed in the middle of the night as a result of some half-bearded creature that is roaming about one's dreams.
Best wishes to you all. . .
*Note: This entry will only be posted for a limited time. . . I can only handle so much public humiliation! Nevertheless, there are a few friends who have inquired as to the look, so here is your brief window to check it out.
