I forgot that November is “Movember.” Men grow moustaches to support awareness about men’s health issues, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health.
You’re supposed to start the month clean-shaven on 1 November and grow and groom a moustache through the end of the month. Moustache-growing teams raise money to support cancer research and men’s health. You can read about it here:
It’s been decades since I last tried growing a moustache, and when I did, the light blond whiskers on my upper lip were barely visible, so you really couldn’t tell it was there. Maybe I’ll give it another shot this month and see what happens. I’m guessing it may be more gray than blond, and will still be barely visible. Oh well.
