Then about this time last year, I started trimming up the sides to keep that nice and non-shaggy, but I let the goatee and mustache keep growing and growing. Sam hated it, wanted it gone, and kept threatening to slice it off. As it just so happened, we had a visit from the guys upstairs, our boss's boss's bosses, so I figured it was finally time to say farewell to the overgrown monstrosity that was the goatee.
