Long-gone, unfortunately, are the days when unwedded royals swapped portraits and sized each other up for marriage. Ringlets were ogled and dentures examined before anyone decided anything. And then, only then, were locks of hair exchanged.
Now we have Facebook (yep, there was no middle ground there at all) and can make sure Friday’s hookup really did have two different-colored eyes (look it up, dude, it’s cool, and the number of celebrities supposedly with this condition is absurd).
Fortunately, Intersection for the Arts holds a free (and DJed!) portrait day where you can go get your image preserved for all time, and maybe even swap it with an intended. Don’t go cutting any locks of hair. Yet. Show up on Saturday, get camera-snapped, and receive your photo (FREE) sometime early in the next week. And begin your conquests, portrait in hand.
