Okay, gentlemen, I must know–when and if you ever pluck out a single beard hair, how long is the root on it?
Because, I have to tell you, I have a whisker that grows on my chin, which I attempt to pluck the moment I can feel it come to the surface and when I do, the part that is exposed to air is probably no wider than the letter “I” right there, but the part that was beneath the skin is about as long as that letter “I” is tall.
It freaks me right the fuck out. Why does it have such a deep root?! My chin doesn’t feel that thick. I press just a wee bit and I can feel the bone. Where is all that hair hanging out inside my face?!
Is it like a normal beard whisker, just given to me by some weird curse of genetics or is it some freak of nature both because it’s on my chin and because the root is so huge?
Advise me, boys.
