This post is mostly for fun. No offense meant… mostly. 😛
We have never understood why people tend to ask things like, “When you switch, does your shoe size change?” or “Does the color of your hair change?” Ooo, ooo! BEST EVAR: “Holland is African American. Does your skin tone change when she comes out?!” (To which I, with the monotone voice, suddenly enthusiastically say, “OH TOTALLY!”) I guess, because we have been multiple since toddler-hood, we just don’t get how people can ask such questions. No offense, but COME ON PEOPLE! 😛 One body-many minds. ONE BODY-MANY MINDS. ONE BOD… you get it now, I figure. 😉 Many people with D.I.D. never tell anyone, and many have no idea they have it. So I figure there are many more of us than psychiatry acknowledges. This means, if these things happened, people would be walking down the street and suddenly their shoes are too big or their raven hair goes blond. They would get taller, shorter, heavier, thinner, darker, lighter, way older, way younger, different species altogether … and you would wonder who slipped what into your caramel latte. (Acid is a weird drug, ain’t it?)
There are certainly things that do change, but not solid physical things. We might walk differently, have an accent, deeper voice, different mannerisms and ways of saying things, there are talents some here possess I’d love to have but don’t, but our physical body doesn’t change. (I mean, if it did, the skinniest one of us all would be made to front with me all the time! lol) And as for penmanship, it’s slightly different, but same hands, yanno, so it’s not drastic really. While the voice may change a bit, the only person here who sounds NOTHING like myself is Farren. The first time I heard her on a recording, I almost wet myself. We all share a voice box, so getting an accurate portrayal of our voices out here is hard.
We often wish certain things could change, but we switch so rapidly there would be civilians dropping left and right from heart attacks.
