Tuesday morning Kingpin Roulade took stock of his reflection in the bathroom mirror and decided it was time for a new look. An impulsive man, he began by shaving off his eyebrows. The resulting change in his appearance was significant but not at all what he'd hoped for. No, he missed his eyebrows straight away and he wanted them back. Kingpin was not inexperienced in the art of do it yourself barbering, having spur of the moment lowered his own ears on more than one occasion. The secret to success was just to keep evening it up until it looks deliberate.
Before breakfast Tuesday morning, Kingpin shaved off most of his beard, leaving only two eye brow shaped patches of whiskers on his right cheek and jaw; one arched quizzically as if to ask, "Now just how the heck did that happen?"
