269: Marked

It is very strange to be somewhere where my appearance marks me as a rich person. That takes some getting used to. I am certainly not in the habit of thinking of myself as a rich person, and it is disconcerting to have others mark me so – just by the way I look. Now, understand me – I am not wearing diamonds and designer clothing. My shoes are from Wal-Mart, and my shorts and t-shirt together did not cost $5. It is not what I wear, however, it is the paleness of my skin (even tanned) that sets me apart, marks me as prey.

I can change my clothes, no problem.

How do you change your skin?
