How not to grow mutton chops
In trying to grow mutton chops for halloween, I have come to the conclusion that I would have been easier to grow a full beard and then cut into it when the time was right. What I did instead was to let my side burns grow down and out. They usually extend evenly, but as I let them grow forward I had trouble keeping them even. Side burns are easily kept even by finding landmarks on each ear. As I ventured away from this "coast" however, landmarks are harder to find and one is easily distracted. So now I've nearly shaved them off.
