Thoughts While Not Shaving

My beard was born on July 24th 2005.

Or should I say “his beard”?  What is the style here. Should this kind of website stuff be first person or second person.

I have been advised by the Shabby Gentry that second person is the way to go. Or should I say Dave has been advised…It reminds me of my fourth grade teacher saying “Now Miss Sheilds will show you her slides of Mexico”.  Seemed odd at the time. Like she was talking about herself as if she wasn’t there.
