Am I a Jedi in disguise?

Being on holidays (paternity leave?) at the moment, I have taken the opportunity to not bother shaving. In fact, I have more facial hair than I have ever had...

I do take exception to my father's unkind suggestion that it is just bum-fluff, but it really would be an exaggeration to call it a "beard".

A funny thing though... A couple of my sons' friends at school, Star Wars nerds all, have suggested that I look like Qui-Gon Jinn. You be the judge...

I can see what they are thinking, but it is a bit of a stretch. I've got a lot less there, and a lot more of it is grey! In fact the best thing about not being clean-shaven is that I am a lot less likely to get "you're too young to have seven children!"

So I think I will keep my light sabre in the cupboard and remember that I would much rather be Dr Who anyway!
