Well this sucks.
It’s quite smooth (natch) but I’ve developed a spot of alopecia areata on my face just to the left of my goatee.
It’s not particularly gross per se but it is distracting and (potentially) face-altering, at least from a perception standpoint.
I likely won’t be able to grow a warm, fuzzy winter beard until my stress level drops significantly and my follicles get back to growing. Damn you work-induced stress!
Oh well, I was gonna rock the Fu Manchu post Turkey Day anyhow. Now I have an excuse.
