From time to time, we like to catch up with some of the characters who have made this blog what it is for the past 28 years. Today: the mustache Tim grew earlier this year, over the protests of his wife, clergy, and counsel.
FB: Let’s jump right in. What have you been up to these last few months?
Tim’s Mustache: Traveling, mostly. I mean, when I was with Tim, it was the same thing every single day: home, work, Monk, home, work, Monk, and on and on and on. That time we met Troy — you know, from the picture, haha — that night was like a freaking vacation, man. I honestly didn’t know there were other places in Dallas. Oh, well, okay, there was the trip to see the space shuttle take off, but the less said about that the better, if you know what I mean.
FB: I don’t, actually.
TM: I, uh, I was actually told there wouldn’t be — okay, look, man. I’ll just say Buzz knows what happened and leave it at that.
FB: Buzz Aldrin?
TM: Hey, I said I’m done talking about it.
TM: [takes long drink of water; refuses to make eye contact]
FB: Okay, okay. Let’s try to get back on track. So, um, uh, uh — so where did you go?
TM: [breaks into a big smile] Ah, well, first, as you know, I’m part Irish, so I spent a few weeks just kicking around Ireland — I’m sure I still smell like Guinness! Anyway, it was so great, you know, just to get in touch with my roots. Really helped me find my center. And then I spent a ton of time in the summer just going from one music festival to another. I ended up in Brooklyn for a while. And for the last month or so, I’ve been laying low here, trying to figure out the next step. You’re not hiring are you?
FB: Yeah, ha, we could really use your help, you know, with the thing.
TM: You’re not talking about…
TM: So, how’s Tim?
FB:Â He’s, well, he’s sort of lost without you?
FB: No. He’s just fine. He was talking about growing a beard the other day.
TM: [storms out of room in tears]
