Genetics sucks. While my Dad had a great 'stache for 30+ years, I can't grow anything down my snot runnel, so mine always looks split, not to mention the bald spot under my chin. I always hated the Hispanic kids in Jr. High that were growing moustaches at age 13.
while i seemingly got some of my old man's epic stache genes (seriously, it was magnum PI worthy) for some reason it won't grow down to the goatee. if i let it go all out it would connect up but further down the side like those old time western bad guys.
i cannot grow the stache this year, but in support, i will let my goatee grow free. someday i will have the zz top look.
