During COVID I wanted to do some gardening, but I live in an apartment, so the only thing I could grow was a handlebar. ;-)
The handlebar made me more WYSIWYG (out of the box look for out of the box thinking).
My favorite mustache wax is Bossman MUDstache, unscented, very easy to apply, water washable, and with a strong hold.
I recently shaved my mustache. It was fun, but I'm taking a break. I may grow it back at some point.
