The furlough is leaving a lot of federal workers around the country with plenty of time on their hands. We expect there's going to be a lot of very clean garages and tidy yards.
We decided to check in with a few of those furloughed workers to see how they're filling their days.
When scrolling around Twitter this morning, we noticed that the furlough was having one very deliberate side effect: extra facial hair.
The Twitter meme #FurloughBeard has been making the rounds. Beards and mustaches are going unshaven until there's an end to the furlough. If you're experimenting with growing a beard or doing anything else with your time off, tweet us @taketwo and send us pictures!
