Trees, Men, and Beards

I have long hair and a long beard, and I discovered recently my nickname among the employees at my local WalMart is “Beard Man.” Apparently they have some sort of contest among themselves to see who gets to carry out the groceries for Beard Man.

That’s not the most imaginative of nicknames, but I’m still fond of it, and here’s why: my favorite character in Lord of the Rings is an Ent named Tree Beard, so named because he is a tree with a beard.

Tree Beard, Beard Man; it makes me smile.
