i almost went with a couple others that made me laugh more, but this one is both funny, and has a bit of poignancy to it! seriously, these poor guys didn’t choose their uniforms. they need something to cover up with. and don’t we all, from time to time, need a little mustache (either literally or figuratively) to give us some dignity!?

shoot me an email with your book choice, jess.
