The Moustache Trend
There seems to be a trend sweeping the world that is affecting men, women, AND children. It’s the moustache trend. Men are growing them and/or donning fake ones of all shapes & sizes. Women & girls are wearing apparel & accessories that hail the almighty moustache & some are even wearing fake ones, too! Tattoos, school supplies, bumper stickers, underwear….. you name it – a moustache is showing up as a prominent image in today’s culture & has been for a while – particularly, the handlebar moustache (like the Pringles’ guy…).
Why am I blogging about this? Why is it a trend? Where did it start? WHO CARES! I noticed when I see a baby with a fake moustache pacifier and a onesie to match, a pair of sunglasses with a moustache dangling by a chain below, a guy with a full-on handlebar moustache, knitted winter hats with a built-in moustache ….. I LAUGH. Sometimes I laugh out loud, and sometimes discretely on the inside. I’ve even attended a charity event called “The ‘Stache Bash” that did lots of wonderful things for the community! When it all comes down to it, the moustache thing doesn’t seem to make much sense, but it’s bringing a smile to folks everywhere, and that’s pretty fantastic!
