I recently finished The Silent Sister, a fiction book about a girl who, after her father's death, is cleaning out his house and discovers that her older sister, whom she thought had committed suicide, might be alive. I won't spoil the book for you, it was a very intriguing read, check it out.
But there is a part of the book in which the older sister has run away, and is trying to disguise herself, and she dyes her hair, and her eyebrows, and that is all she does. I found myself screaming, pierce your nose, get a nose job! and this got me thinking... What would I have to change of my appearance, to be unrecognizable, if on the run?
While thinking about what to do to become unrecognizable, my fist thought was that I couldn't wear black.... I wear black almost everyday, people are always surprised when they see me not wearing black. The thought of wearing bright colors and / or prints gives me anxiety. The thought of me wearing yellow gives me a headache.
I would definitely have to get a nose job. I used to hate my nose as a teen, especially the little bump on the bridge of it, likely caused by my brothers bumping me on the nose when they were little. I'm ok with my nose now, but if I wanted to not be recognized, I would have to get a nose job.
In talking to Roger, he said that I would have to dye my hair and start wearing make up. And my sister suggested that I would either have to become super fit and bulky or put on some weight to be unrecognizable.
Roger said that he would have to dye his hair and grow a bear... I told him that was very Superman of him.
Sister #2 said that she would have to dye her hair, pierce her nose and stop wearing dresses.
So today, I put it out to you... In the event that you were on the run, what would you do to make yourself unrecognizable ?
