Little kids line up in front of the giant sign filled with pictures of colorful faces. What would you like? hmm I don't know they respond shyly. All they know is that they want their faces to look different for a little while. What's the appeal? From a young age it is a wonderful delight, a special treat, to have a stranger paint a picture on your face. Something pretty, something scary to show off as you stomp around outside with your friends. Sometimes it's refreshing to not look like yourself. We put so much stress on appearances, and most days you're stuck with what you are. Mirrors everywhere you look, it's a nice break to not have to look like yourself for a little while. Dressing up, dressing down, whatever the appeal is, it is certainly there. Go ahead and hide, or go ahead and loudly display something other than yourself for once. Go ahead and play pretend and live another life until the paint washes off. You look beautiful my dear.
