A man sporting a beard has informed an acquaintance of how he bravely overcame the itchiness.
“It was tough, but I made it,” said 34-year-old local Mason Baker.
“I was tempted to pull out the razors, but I held firm.”
Baker says he now feels “no itch at all”.
For the first month of growth, Baker was forced to notify his work colleagues on a daily basis that he was in fact growing a beard.
“See this disgusting sordid growth on my face, that’s going to be a beard,” Baker told his work mates.
Baker has recently started reading beard-grooming tips online during office hours.
