You know what? I wish I could grow a long beard. Even if it's not a full, big, bushy type of beard. I'd be fine with a wispy, wizened, old-man type of beard. Mostly so I could stroke it, go "Hrrrmmmm...." and act all wise while saying "profound" things like, "In order to go left, you must first find the path to go right within yourself." or other ice-cream koans. It'd be such fun. Or stroking my beard and swishing it to the side while acting like the stern, old martial-arts master.

As a man who has a full beard i can tell you that growing it long is trying in quite a few different ways. Beard oil and beard balm will sooth the skin. However regular combing or brushing are needed to keep it neat. It is a daily task, but not substantially different from brushing or combing other hair on the head... except the crumbs. Accidental chewing on beard ends, and the associated beard hair hair pulling is a potential source of humor.

I wouldn't mind all that, actually. I've already got really long (waist-length) hair that I usually keep in a long single braid like you see in those kung fu movies, heh. But the beard is more troublesome, as I've got those southeast Asian genes that seem to make it impossible to grow much facial hair. Would be nice though, with the hair and the appropriate mustache, I might even be able to pull off Fu Manchu =p
