In the absence of evidence to the contrary,
people are inclined to take you at your face value.
A conversation between me and myself:
ME - I love making squiggly lines with India Ink!
MYSELF - Of course you do - it is loads of fun!
ME - I think I will make squiggly lines directly on her face and not just her hair and the background.
MYSELF - Maybe you should rethink that idea - may be a bit too much squiggly for this girl. . .
ME - Nope! There is no such thing as too much squiggly!
Time passes while too much squiggly is added to picture. . .
ME - Maybe I will listen to MYSELF next time!!
