The Story Behind the 'Stache.

As some of you may remember, the very first post I made on this blog was regarding a certain FLAMING MUSTACHE that I had the pleasure of seeing each day as I walked home to my lovely home in heritage halls.

(in case you don’t remember that post//you did not have the pleasure of reading that post, you can read it here)

also, here is a picture to jog your memory:

Anyway, I’m taking an art class this year and one day my teacher said something about the flaming I had to ask if she knew the story behind it! Sadly, she didn’t. BUT HER T.A. DID! So I now (after TWO YEARS) understand the mystery behind the ‘stache :)

I don't remember who the artist was or anything like that, but apparently he had a very bushy, red mustache. Over time that became his defining characteristic i guess you could say. Like when people spoke about him they would say "he's the guy with the flaming red mustache." WOW. It all makes so much sense now. I can't believe i didn't think of that before!! It's so simple! and it actually MAKES SENSE.
So...what's your defining feature? I would probably say mine is my freckles.

Hm. It would be hard to make an artwork of a one would be able to tell what it was. Sad.

my freckles: [notice the "band-aid"'s especially prominent in this picture ;)]
