Compare and contrast

You know Highlights magazine...the kids' magazine that seems to be ubiquitous in doctor's offices? Each issue seems to have a 'compare' picture where you're supposed to find the differences in the picture.

We kind of had our own version of that yesterday. I have a 'picture frame' on my computer, and this picture of me from 18 months ago came up. It was truly awful to look at. I called Mike over to see, and younger son had to see what the excitement was about.

"That's a picture of me from a while ago. Do I look different?"
"Yeah."
"What's different?"
"Well, your hair in that picture is blonde, and I don't like that. It's too golden. But your hair is really dirty blonde, which is the same as mine, and I like it better." (Mike and I are snickering at this point already. The reason I'd been coloring my hair is that it was coming in a gunky grey-brown prior to my celiacs diagnosis.)
"Okay...what else?"
"You're wearing earrings now, and you weren't then. Also, you went to Florida and have this really cool NASA shirt that you're wearing now."

He wandered off at that point...never mentioning the fact that I looked pale, puffy, and sick in the picture.
