“Hey! I've got a question for those who know me: Do you think I radiate some kind of... "I'm Evil" vibe or "I will consume your soul"? You know, the kind of thing that a small child might pick up on?
I ask the question because I'm at Disney, and there are lots of small children running around, and several times today, some child has been bouncing along happily, come closer to me, suddenly stopped bouncing along happily, and then kind of... slinked by, basically fearfully. Like... suddenly <i>shut down</i> and did the "Oh my God, that thing will kill me." Just happened a few minutes ago. Boy was literally skipping along, he got within a few feet of me, saw me, suddenly stopped skipping and kind of shuffle-walked past me, turning his head and keeping his eyes on me the whole time - as if he thought that if he took his eyes off me, I would jump out and eat him.
I don't <i>feel</i> especially ogreish today, I'm actually smiling and enjoying myself. But I feel like there's some kind of... <i>field</i> radiating from me, that when small children penetrate it, they suddenly become fearful. They sense my true nature or something. I'm not especially displeased by this, actually, I'm more amused by it. And I just thought I'd share, because... I got nothing better to do.
Anyway, I'm going to go wander around a little bit, enjoy myself some more. Bye!”
