Don't Notice Me, Hey, Why Aren't You Noticing Me?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Hedgehog Talk : One Thread
Have you ever not wanted to be the centre of attention about something, but when you aren't, are you annoyed?

Yeah, last time I cut and dyed my hair, very few people said anything. Hello? Long and blonde, to short and bright red???

When I plucked my eyebrows for the first time I was being all expressive with my husband and he took not one notice of my oh-so-well-designed eyebrowisms!

The only surefire way to get commentary on your appearance is to wear a hat or a military garment. A fur coat will generally do it too, but not in a good way. I don't know why people always need to say "Nice hat," or ask you if your peacoat is authentic and where you got it, but they do. Even a simple beret provokes commentary. Other aspects of your comportment, well... When I got my braces off: nothing; all the times I turned my hair some hideous and inadvertent color: nothing; when I wear a skirt so short that it scarcely covers my ass: nothing. Everyone was then too busy looking for people to say "nice hat" to.
I can double the commentary on my wardrobe by wearing my Air Assault cap with the insignia, as it's both a hat *and* military. Actually the watch cap with an 8-ball patch on it that I got at a Mexican flea market gets so many off-the-wall remarks that I don't even like to don it anymore.
