Movember is contagious!

I went on a journey today to find Christmas in a cup at Starbucks which the masses probably call a Peppermint Mocha.  That mission ended in success...

...but the very journey yielded a success far greater than the treasure I sought.

As I ordered my drink, I caught my cubical-roomie-life-mate-Ryan checking out the guy working the counter.  Doing a double take, complete with an eyebrow raise, I caught site of what captivated him.

It was majestic.

It was everything I dreamed it could be.

It was the White Whale of all mustaches!  And this, only 9 days in!  But could it be?  Could it be a MOvember mustache or was this a mustache pro, year-round in training?

Like a nervous fan, I approached the counter and said, "Excuse me, is your mustache for movember?"

With a grin he said, "Yes.  Yes it is.  I see you too have some growth.  Have some free Starbucks, on me."

I walked out to the car, feeling happy but not yet complete.  I put my coffee down and ran back inside as Ryan shouted after me, "You crazy fool, where are you going?!"

I said nothing, but approached the counter again, camera in hand.  "Do you mind if I document this?  My friends will never believe me," I said as if I were about to throw back a 40 inch fish.

"Not at all," he said.  

So here he is:

And here is you can see I have quite a way to go...

Happy Friday my Denmonites!
