My beard is mainly out of laziness (who wants to shave every day?) but last night it came in handy and saved the day. I was half asleep and rubbed my eyes which caused my left contact to come out but I was half asleep and wasn't really sure if it did or not. I turned towards the TV as my way of checking if I'd lost it or not (can I see it clearly or not) and as I turned my head just the right way I could see the bottom part of my beard and the contact was just hanging out right there where I could see it with no light except the TV. If I had gotten up to turn on the light and then look, I would have lost it for good.

In addition, the contact case I normally use is in my golf bag which a friend has so when I went to put the contact in a spare case, I found that there was already a contact in one side of that. That's huge since I'm down to my last pair of contacts. Now I have my last pair and one spare. Both of my eyes are the same prescription which hasn't changed for years so I'm really glad to have that one spare now in case something happens and I lose one before I can get more.

I think I'm going to get actual glasses this time around since I'm tired of dealing with contacts so I just need these contacts to hang around for another couple of weeks until I have the exam next week and the glasses arrive.

Agreed. I don't keep my beard this long anymore, but there are times I wish I'd grow it back out again. This was taken a couple years ago when Mrs. Swirls and I went to a local Oktoberfest.

I grew a beard one time in my life; and everyone told me I looked like my Dad's twin. Now I love my Dad....but I don't wanna hear that. So no more beards for me.

I'm 35, and if I were to try it would still grow in all patchy white trashy like Joe Dirt.
