The thought crossed my mind a few times over the past couple of weeks, and faced with trimming or cutting, I went for the latter. So far, no regrets. Of course, it will probably come back relatively soon since I hate shaving.
It's funny that you'll need to adjust. My boys said I looked weird. The irony being that I've been (relatively) clean-shaven for the majority of their lives. I guess I was still covering my head with the stormtrooper helmets when I was last posting pics here sans beard.
