TERRY DULLUM: The Dullum File — Most Frequently Asked Questions (About My Mustache)

Q:  Why — at your advanced age — did you decide to grow a mustache?
A:  I was asked to. It’s for my role in “Death by Chocolate,” the Fourth annual Firemen’s Ball on July 27 at the Mason Lodge in Grand Forks. It’s a fundraiser for the Fire Hall Theatre. I’ll be playing a detective, and everyone knows all detectives have mustaches.

Q:  I didn’t know you could act.
A:  Not everyone agrees that I can. By the way, that’s not a question.

Q:  Have you had a mustache before?
A:  Yes, back in 1973.

Q:  How did you look with it then?
A:  Stupid. But it was 1973, and we all looked stupid in 1973. All men, anyway.

Q:  How long did you have it?
A:  I can’t remember, but I think about six months.

Q:  Why did you stop wearing it?
A:  I was about to audition for a television job, so I shaved it in an effort to look more clean-cut. It may have worked because I got the job.

Q:  Anything surprise you about this one?
A:  Yes. It grew in faster and much more gray than I expected.

Q:  Does it itch?
A:  No.

Q:  Do you like it?
A: No.

Q:  Does Ginny like it?
A:  She says she does.

Q:  Can we see a picture?
A:  No.

Q:  Why wouldn’t you just wear a fake one?
A:  I don’t know.

Q:  Do you intend to keep it?
A:  Yes. For about an hour after the performance.
