I must admit that an area police department’s posted description of a man wanted for questioning in a knife-point robbery made me chuckle a little bit.
The description read “white, short, skinny with blue eyes and a big nose”.
Though not particularly flattering, I suspect it probably was accurate and hopefully will lead to an arrest.
Then I wondered out loud, what kind of physical description might be written about me.
Mostly gray hair, just a little too much weight for my height? Considered handsome only by himself?
Over the years I’ve been amazed at the way appearance can dictate everything from relationships to business dealings.
I’ve often said to groups I’ve spoken to that I don’t care how you look as long as you don’t stink.
We all might be better off if we took that approach.
That’s the way I see it.
