Van Gogh's Ear, Conspiracy Theory / Teoría De Conspiración De La Oreja de Van Gogh

La versión español está depsués de la versión inglés.

I LIKE MYSELF without the beard (click here) — for now. But I don't like having to shave every day. So I figured out that I can give myself a clean shave as little as once a week as long as I buzz-cut my beard every day or two and shave around the edges to give it shape every two or three days. Today was a buzz-cut day and I caught my left earlobe in the corner of the my electric beard trimmer. I didn't know that was even possible! I checked for blood but at first only found a small piece of detached earlobe. Fortunately, it seems that earlobes repair themselves quickly.

I wonder if Vincent Van Gogh's problem was simply one big misunderstanding.

ME GUSTA A mi mismo sin barba (haz clic aquí) — por ahora. Pero no me gusta tener que afeitarme todos los días. Así que me di cuenta de que podía afeitarme apenas una vez por semana, siempre que me cortara la barba (corte de zumbido) todos los días o dos, y afeitara los bordes para darle forma cada dos o tres días. Hoy fue un día de "zumbido" y atrapé el lóbulo de la oreja en la esquina de la afeitadora. Ni siquiera sabía que eso fuera posible. Busqué la sangre, pero al principio solo encontré un pequeño pedazo de lóbulo de oreja desprendido. Afortunadamente, parece que los lóbulos de las orejas se reparan rápidamente. 

Me pregunto si el problema de Vincent Van Gogh fue simplemente un gran malentendido.


EIGHT HOURS LATER. MIRACULOUS.
OCHO HORAS DESPUÉS. ¡MILAGROSO!
WITH BEARD AND WITHOUT. WAS IT ONLY A SHAVING ACCIDENT AFTERALL?
CON BARBA Y SIN BARBA. ?DESPUÉS DE TODO, SÓLO FUE UN ACCIDENTE DE AFEITADO?

  1. Yep - intact ear when bearded and no beard after the shave. I think you are on to something! Or maybe on something. Hard to tell.

  2. Good theory! May be accurate.
    I only shave once a week ......maybe twice depending if I can stand looking at myself bearded! lol

      I love the scruff look but in my case it's the excessive-compulsive-scruff. Stubble but neatly trimmed around the edges.

  3. I hope you gave the small piece of detached earlobe to San Geraldo as proof of your obsessive love for him.

      I like the shadow but I don't like the unshaved neck. So I compromise.

      When I worked, I shaved every day (even if I had a beard, I shaved around the edges every day).

  6. Yeah, I have to shave my face hair two to three times a week. It's growing in white. It's kind of disconcerting considering I'm female and all. Never in my sixty-two years have I ever had to shave my legs, though. It's a good thing, Mitchell my man, that you don't use a straight razor. You might not have stopped at the lobe!

      When I was 15, I decided to shave my sideburns with a double-edged razor. No one told me you don't slide sideways!

      When I was working from home, I made a point of shaving every day just to keep myself in "work mode."
