Today, I had to meet my mother. Being a college student, I decided I was too lazy to shave this morning. She noticed the stubble on my face, and started crying because I'm growing up. I'm 23 years old. My dad yelled at me for making my mom cry. FML

23 is a little late to be noticing facial hair on a man.

My guess is that your face was as smooth as a baby's butt through high school and in your early 20's, and your mom thought you were her little girl.

She's crying over the pain and expense you are going to have to endure to have electrolysis so you can still be her daughter.
