Show and Tell or Self Deprecation? You Decide.
Finally the weekend is here! What better way to kick off these two precious days away from the boredom that has become my life than with embarassing pictures from my past. Before we move on to the pictures allow me clarify...it's not that my whole life is boring, I'm just not enthusiastic about work right now. It's the whole post-holiday slump I think because, truly, I do like my job.
I asked my mom to look for pictures from my awkward stage. You know what I'm talking about. For me, it all happened around seventh grade. She kindly agreed to scan the best (and by best I mean worst) pictures she could find. She was such a good sport about it. Here is what she sent. Thanks, Mom.
Here I am (left) with Mom and Sara. It appears to be Mom's birthday and nothing says "Happy Birthday" like a toilet scrubber. What a thoughtful daughter I am! Anything for you, Mom!
Wow, this one totally shows off my sexy bangs and bang-swoop, which was generally hardened with hairspray. My braces were totally hot too, but not as hot as my beyond the grave complexion. That's the longest my hair has ever been. If you ever wondered what my natural hair color is, there you go! I haven't seen it in years. I wonder why I didn't have a boyfriend?
And here I am with my cousin and Sara. Apparently I was growing out my bangs? I am totally rockin' the scrawny pale look with style.
This is my favorite picture of all (akward) time. The other sleeve of that Limited Too sweatshirt was red. Hey, it's a lot more conservative than the titty tops young girls wear today. Kids these days, I tell ya. Also, notice how my dad's hair gives him a striking resemblance to Christopher Walken.
Perhaps because she felt bad for me, Mom sent this picture and entitled it "swan." She just wanted to end on a good note I suppose or maybe she wanted to block out the fact that the above are pictures of the spawn of her loins and she is deeply ashamed.
I did go on to win prom queen later that night. All of those afternoons at the tanning salon were totally worth it.
