Laughing at Myself

I had some silly fun yesterday. OK - granted, it was at my own expense, but it was fun none-the-less. My friend KB, with whom I went to high school in Michigan in my younger years, sent me a photograph of me all dressed up for Homecoming. I laughed so hard I nearly cried because 1) I can't believe anyone ever got me to dress up like that (especially in a strapless dress) and 2) because I can't believe there is proof of it! I posted the picture yesterday (omitting my escort for the evening, not having his permission to post his picture on the web) both on my blog and on my FaceBook page and have been so shocked at the reaction of my friends and family! I have never, ever thought I was beautiful but some of the comments that were made were so kind and sweet and, frankly, flattering. I wish now that I actually felt beautiful when I was beautiful. Of course, I guess that's what being 17 does to a person, huh? I also posted something funny that Kiddo said yesterday - so if you get a chance, check it out. Anyway - back to the silly fun. I pulled the picture out of the envelope and G happened to be standing there. I showed her the picture and she immediately snatched it out of my hand and took off running down the hall! She made me chase her! I didn't know what her plans were with my picture, except possible blackmail - LOL! She scurried (as fast as her adorable wing-tip heels could carry her) into the lobby and tossed the picture at our security guard. They had a good laugh at my expense...dammit. I'm laughing all over again. It really was funny. TTFN JMS

There's nothing like old photos to get people laughing and enjoying bits from their past! It makes me want to dig out a few of mine!
