Seeing a Face

Ok, maybe I am weird. Maybe I am the only person this ever happens to. Maybe I need to seek professional help. Sometimes, when I am looking at a person that I know very well, I suddenly start to see their face in an entirely new light. It's as if I am looking at them for the first time. I start thinking that all the other times I looked at them, I must have not seen it right, because I am finally seeing it clearly now. On top of that, it's almost like I am looking through their face into their very soul, and that is what is making them seem so new and different. It's like a brand new depth of seeing when before I was only skimming the surface. And I'll think to myself, "Ohhhh, that's _______(fill in blank with person's name.)" like I have suddenly discovered their true essence. And I'll feel embarrassed that I never noticed how they really looked before because it means I must have not been looking hard enough. I think I have a habit of casually glancing people over, even really close friends, without actually examining them. Even though this is a completely one-sided experience (I don't tell them what is going on in my brain at the point where their features are becoming clear in my mind), I feel much closer to the person after it than before. So now, the moment of truth...has this ever happened to anyone else? Or am I crazy.....?

Okay, was that comment really from Kristi or someone posing as Kristi? :)

Becky said...

um, i am guessing that is a pseudo post from Kristi because I am almost positive she does not find me HOT.

Kristi said...

Though I do find you utterly amazing, hot is not really one of the first words that come to mind!! Of course I have always been envious of your gorgeous hair!! No, that was not me :)

HA!!! Okay, when I first read "Kristi's" comment this morning, I thought, "That's an odd thing to say. It must be an inside joke between Becky & Kristi."

A pseudo post now makes more sense!
