Morning Me

I feel like Mr. Karl and Dave copycat guy.

A few weeks ago Karl and Dave wrote about their beliefs and a few days later I wrote my version of it.

Then the other day, Karl and Dave again participated in tandem in a "show us your morning face" challenge.

So what am I doing today?

Oh well, no one ever said you had to be original to blog. And since this is all in good fun anyway - I'll be a good sport and show you my morning face. However, I'm warning you...

... it ain't pretty!


The one thing I'm going to do however that the rest of the participants aren't doing - is show you what I looked like just a mere 30 minutes later - after a shave, shower and grooming.



No, this isn't some kind of backpedal. I simply wanted to cleanse you of that first picture so you can finish your breakfast.

Now, go on and have a nice day!

That's what Charli sees when she rolls over, first thing in the morning? And she still loves you--lucky,lucky you!!! That is too funny!!! We are LOL!!!

Mom said...

P.S. But OMG---you look handsome in picture #2!!!

rick said...

your sideburns look lopsided.

Harmonica Man said...

mom - Nice save. And such a "mom" thing to say.

rick - That may be, but you should see how level my nose hair is!

Dave2 said...

Sadly, I probably look better before, because at least then I have an excuse!

B. M. Lee said...

Rick you are completly right. They are lopsided!

Gale said...

Did you take your own picture? How do you do that?

Bill said...

Be glad you can be two faced!

Heather said...

Wow, that's harsh.

There's no way I'm posting my morning face. NO WAY.

Harmonica Man said...

dave2 - Wouldn't it be great if we could all just keep our bedheads for the day?

brandon - Huh. I must have gotten a little razor-happy on my left side this morning.

gale - I'm just holding the camera out in front of me. It's easy because I have like freakishly long ape arms.

dad - Yeah, because that would be pretty scary if I couldn't move beyond my first one every day!

heather - And which one exactly are you referring to as the "harsh" one?

Jessica said...

I believe this is the first "Rise and Shine" where someone has put a before and after - I love it!

Thanks for participating!

That's hot!

Jo said...

I like the before and after idea - nice twist! Oddly, I think you look way younger in the first one. Is it just me? Maybe I like my men disheveled?

Stacey said...

I haven't been able to post an after picture because I have yet to actually get out of bed.

jenny said...

i love the bed hair! and i particularly like that the door/wall you're standing in front of looks sort of like the height chart in a mug shot.

turn to the left!

Carla said...

You aren't expecting all of us to copy cat that are you?

Karl said...

Looking good, Maynard! Good idea, the "after" shot. Sadly, mine wouldn't be much of an improvement.

~Jennifer said...

I'm with Jo. I think I liked the before better too. Nah, I looked again, they're both good.

yellojkt said...

That is one bushy set of bad bed hair.

Dan said...

I loved you in Taxi and Back to the Future.

Mooselet said...

GAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Like I look much better.... you're a brave soul.

wayabetty said...

This is like one of those cartoons "pick out 7 things that are different from each picture". And the answer is "what differences"? Just kidding Jeff!

I'm SO NOT that brave to post any morning pictures of myself, that's for sure. I DO NOT want to offend anyone THAT early in the morning!
