Lloyd, Prototype

Behold! Wolverine-like Lloyd!

Lloyd made a survey for the middle schoolers to fill out that gave them four choices for his hair, and four for his beard. The hair part I’ll still keep secret, but of Abraham Lincoln, Wolverine, Fu Manchu, or goatee – they chose Wolverine. He decided to ease into the look with the Abraham beard, but now he’s fully committed. (He can’t get his hair cut because he always comes home after Bob the Barber closes.)

Y’know, if someone had told me as a young girl that part of marriage would be to look up images of an X-Men hero on my laptop in the bathroom while my husband shaves off part of his beard and then make a slashed-up tie for him to wear, I never would have believed them.

Note the green pens.  I actually made a prototype retractor, but it was too bulky.

Best. Marriage. Ever.

    That would be handy if Wolverine’s claws were pens. Making a deposit at the bank would be hassle free!

    Boy Lloyd, you’re lucky. Our sports guy on the morning news grew a full beard then took an online vote for how to shave it off. The winning style was Fu Manchu. They shaved him on the air. He looked like a porn star. I don’t think it lasted a week.

    Check out this clip about it -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJjza-IvVVA Good times! 🙂

    If you would have used RED pens, when you ‘slashed’ someone there would have been ‘blood.’ Oh, well. Will you shred my home documents for me, I don’t have a machine yet?

      Grasping the pens was awkward. I don’t recommend it. And it took too long to setup to be impressive. And I can’t think of another word with the letters “wkw” in a row.
