It is always an interesting experiment to pay close attention to how people react to me. 

Whether it is my blue hair or eccentric attire that catches their eye - something does. I usher concerts on my college campus for the music department.  The old ladies love me and say things like: “I want to be just like you when I grow up.”  or “Aren’t you beautiful?”.

But the people my age give me dirty sideways glances or just refuse to make eye contact. I wonder why there is such a difference between the two…and it seems rather backwards to me. 

Sidenote: I got a lot of compliments on my socks tonight. 

and long story short…I want to be friends with all the old ladies.
