Another little bit about the motivation behind this act...well, it seemed like things weren't really going where they were supposed to, and going with the whole I-don't-know-and-don't-care frame of mind, I decided to take it all off. Don't worry, I won't assault you or scar your fragile minds with any Memoirs of a Nude Malayalee. Hahaha. Now that you know what I'm thinking, well, just enjoy the...uh...hmm...I don't know.
Well, let's call this the 'starting point'. Someone actually told me I looked like a terrorist. Wow! Triple Threat: Malayalee, Literate AND Dangerous.
This got a bit messed up...I think the flash failed to fire...or I guess I decided to turn off the lights and let the flash do the rest. Hmm... And for those of you paying attention...that's me without the hair.
Clearer, no doubt. I don't know about the smile though. I think that's just my vacuity shining through, ever so brightly. Oh, and I coudn't get rid of the mushtache AND the beard together. I was curious. And after I realized I looked like one of those sleazy cops in Indian cinema, well, I cried. I couldn't believe it. I mean there I was, debo-nair and with a large stock of coconut oil at home, thinking I was cool. But somewhere in me is that absolute, pucca, Malayalee 'fellow' just dying to come out and say, "Oh...my Goad!
Aaah. Full Motta Thalayi. Perfect. Now all I need is one addi with a flat palm right across the back of my head. Well, now the mustache is gone too, and so no more evil policeman look. But still vacuous...if not extremely so.
"Space...The final frontier." Yup...just got off the Starship Enterprise. And about the squinting, well, that's because without eyebrows the flash just came on that much stronger. It's funny, but you never really realize what something's good for till it's gone.
So, there it is. The transformation, so to speak. I was going to use some kind of metaphor, like that of the Ugly Duckling...but this is really going from bad to worse, so I figured that wouldn't work. Please please, waiting to hear from people...and don't spare the adjectives!
