The Fire-Breathing, Pink-Haired, Green-Faced Ev is Just Beneath the Surface

By | October 2, 2013

“You don’t LOOK any different,” my cousin says to me. We haven’t seen each other in years. “I’ve been stalking you on your blog, and after all your posts about how you have changed, I was expecting you to have florescent pink hair, an unearthly sparkling green face and flames erupting out of your mouth.”

Just kidding, he didn’t say all that.

But he got me thinking. The wedding was full of people who hadn’t seen me in years, and my cousin probably wasn’t the only one scrutinizing me and thinking, Ev hasn’t changed at all!

He’s right; I look pretty much the same as I did before I left.

Just remember, appearances can be deceiving. I may still have the same sweet smile, but don’t be surprised when I start breathing fire!
