It doesn't really look like my face to me, but sure enough, This Is My Face

Several months ago I found this drawing while rummaging through some childhood memorabilia at my parents' house. I drew this picture circa 2nd grade, which was circa 1985, back when I lived and went to grade school in Cahokia, IL. I had some sort of assignment called, This is my face. It was simple enough - draw my face and then finish this phrase, "Most of the time my face is _____."

I decided that my face was better than okay, it's very good ...most of the time. Whatever that means.

This is my face
Most of the time my face is okay very good.


Here's me with blonde bangs, circa 2006:

In Arizona

And here's me reenacting myself as a sleepy head, merely three months ago:

Day 359: Sleepy head

These three images have one thing in common, to me, not one of them looks like me.

Why is that?

Break time is over. Get back to work.


  1. You look much better with dark hair.

  2. I agree. I don't like myself as a blonde; it's just not me. I'm more of the dark-hair type.

  3. You went from middle aged in 1985 to 29 recently. How in the world did you accomplish that?
