The day that we went to Stonehenge and Salisbury, Dan and MJ and I passed the time on the long bus ride (which wouldn't have been too long except the coach driver -- who was prone to drive rather lurchily -- took the longer way back) asking Dan "only-a-guy-could-answer-this" questions, and him furnishing like queries.
Not oddly, our questions turned to hair: us asking whether that "men like long hair" thing really is true and him asking us what we thought of a variety of styles of facial hair.
Interestingly, this seems to be a question guys ask a lot.
Sadly for all who've courted my opinion, I have not been able to come up with an across the board answer.
That Chester Arthur thing -- that is NOT the way to go.
