What to say?

I met the subletter who will take the apartment for the next 3 weeks. She stayed here before, when I was traveling with my sister around Europe, but we didn't meet before.

"You look different than your photos," she said.

"Oh. Well. I dyed my hair brown and got it cut."
"Well, those were before I started sulking in Paris with no clear direction for my life. Before I found out my dad's got cancer. Before I decided to drink a ton. Before I decided to stop drinking. Before I decided to stop smoking. Before I had an erratic bed-time/wake-time schedule. Before I started sitting around my apartment for days. Before I got fat."

"Yeah, well, you know, photos never really reveal the whole person." [Bitch.]
