Have I done a good job of keep my secret love of beards quiet around here? ;-)
Whaaaa?! Now, why would you keep that secret... the more card-carrying beard fans the merrier, I say. ;)
Just to be clear I'm not using "older" as a pejorative by any means.
Yeah, there's two contexts going in this thread, it's easy to get mixed up. ;) ("Older" in general, which you're right, totally isn't a perjorative. And "older than he actually is" - which I don't see, even in that photo, but that's just me.)
