Different Like Everyone Else
“The weirder you’re going to behave, the more normal you should look. It works in reverse, too. When I see a kid with green hair and three or four rings in his nose, I know there is absolutely nothing extraordinary about that person.” — P. J. O’Rourke
I’m always amused when “unconventional” and “shocking” people act uncomfortable around me. They really do. I guess when everyone is different, the person dressed casually normal is the freak.
Interestingly enough, people who really are unconventional seem to get along ok with me. I suppose I-Don’t-Give-A-Fuck attracts I-Don’t-Give-A-Fuck.
