It's been awhile since I've done some commentary to my images. Lately I haven't been doing commentaries since I like my viewers to figure things out on their own , or that the image should speak for itself. I'm gonna elaborate on this one though since the title doesn't seem to really have any relation to the image.

Way back in higschool, the year 1995, I was playing e-mail tag with my friend Erin. I had told her about this girl I had a crush on and she had sent me a reply about how this girl was one of the biggest ditzes she knew. She backed up this opinion of hers with this story about how they were both in the same math class discussing direct variation and the teacher had asked for some examples. The "ditzy girl" I had a crush on had raised her hand and said that direct variation is like "when you get cold, all the arm hairs stand up, not just all or one."

I don't know why I still remember this story, but today's photograph reminded me of that, and had a good chuckle while post-proccesing it. Some of the best things in life do not have to make any sense at all.
