I was mugged while I was walking home last night. This morning, I was at the police station with a sketch artist to see if we could come up with a picture of what the thief looked like.
Sketch artist: Okay, you said that this was a man in his 40’s. Can you tell me what shape his face was: thin, round, oval, or square?
Anna: His face was long and thin, I think.
Sketch artist: Were his eyes more round, bulging, or squinty?
Anna: Well, I think they were round, but not too round, and he had bushy eyebrows. He also had a pointed nose, not a hooked one.
Sketch artist: Take at look at this so far. Is this right?
Anna: His nose in the sketch is a little too turned up. It was more straight.
Sketch artist: What about his ears? Were they big or small? And his mouth? Did he have thin or thick lips?
Anna: His ears were average size and they didn’t stick out too much. His lips were more thin than thick.
Sketch artist: We’re almost done. What about his hair? Did he have long or short hair?
Anna: Oh, didn’t I tell you? He’s bald.
Sketch artist: Okay, then. I’m done. What do you think? Is this the guy?
Anna: Wow, you’ve done a great job. Yeah, that’s him. That’s the guy who stole my wallet.
Sketch artist: You know, he looks familiar. I have a feeling I’ve seen him before.
Anna: I hope so. Maybe you can help find him.
Sketch artist: Yeah, now if only I could remember where I’ve seen him before...
