If youâ€™ve listened to Art & Story or follow the same folks I do on Twitter, you know that a few of my friends have been bugging me to grow a beard. Why? Because Iâ€™m home alone for a few months, and, well, I guess thatâ€™s just what dudes do.
Beardâ€™s itch like hell. I donâ€™t want to do it.
Iâ€™m willing to sacrifice my personal comfort by issuing a challenge to you, dear PC Weenies reader.
So, if 5 copies of â€œRebootus Maximusâ€ are ordered, then my beard grows for 5 days. I leave for India on December 19th. Thatâ€™s 73 days from now.
Plenty of beard growinâ€™ time. (And admit it, you WANT me to sport that ZZ Top beard.)
If I sell 73 copies, Iâ€™m taking my beard to India to freak out Aarti. (And, for the record, she really hates beards.)
So, the gauntlet is laid down. I am issuing a challenge. Are you ready for Beardus Maximus?
P.S. If I get 100 orders (or more), I will also have my head BALD. Nothing will freak out Aarti more than a bald-headed bearded dude.
