The Slice

This date in Slice history (1996)

In the Inland Northwest, October 1st is the unofficial start of Maybe I'll Grow a Beard Season.

As always, each man has to make his own decision. (We're pretending for a moment that wives and girlfriends do not have absolute veto power.) But everyone can join in the pre-winter spirit of Beard Season by offering reassuring comments to guys going through those first difficult weeks of whisker-sprouting.

“Got the mange?” has always been one our favorites. But we're sure you can think of your own special words of encouragement.
