Beard Love (a.k.a. I blame Ryan Gosling)

So, there I was this morning, sitting in my therapy session, thinking about how I think too much, and thinking about how I should practice delayed thinking so that when I feel tempted to over-think things I can merely push that thinking to a set aside "thinking" time for said types of thoughts, and then, out of nowhere, while over-thinking thinking, I had this thought:

I like beards.

No. Really. I promise you. In the midst of all of that chaos going on in my head, for a fleeting moment, those three words somehow passed through my brain. And while, yes, I do like beards (on men, not women) I found this recognition to be somewhat disconcerting.

I wonder what Freud would say?

I blame him:

He was one of the first to solidify my love for facial hair.

And now, somehow, he's made it into this blog post involving my therapy, my over-analysis, and my love for beards.

At least I offer something pretty to look at here, folks.

Happy Hump Day.
