Dear 100 Hour Board,

What does five o'clock shadow mean?

- Obviously not a guy

A: Dear one-uh-dem-ladytypes:

Five o'clock shadow is the stubble that most guys get on their faces when they haven't shaved in about 10 hours (around 5pm). Some guys get five o'clock shadow three days later. Some of us get five o'clock shadow around noon.

A: Dear Girl,

My two cents: 5 o'clock shadow's are handsome.

A: Dear Not a guy,

No five-o-clock shadows for me. Yuck... I like my guys freshly-shaven.
