They couldn’t even get me to do this at work that time. But here, I feel there’s more at stake. Although I’m frightened, I feel I must explain the gnarled roots at the origin of this post
When Coaster Punchman posted a photo of the character Olive from the film Little Miss Sunshine, Beth posted a comment. I then posted something about Olive looking like Beth as a child although I had no way of knowing whether this was safe to say.
Beth posted her 4th grade photo comparing herself to Olive but what she really did was prove that enduring quality can start from a humble fashion nugget beginning.
Old Lady mentioned that we should all post a cringe-worthy photo of ourselves on our respective blogs. There was immediate enthusiasm for the idea which in itself frightened me. A date was chosen – October 1, 2006. Sunday bloody Sunday.
We’ve all improved since our geeky schooldays right?
We weren’t responsible for those clothing choices or haircuts were we?
If our eyes were half closed, it was the photographer’s fault, correct?
So, care or dare to join in the madness? Come on. Everybody’s doing it.
Brave hearts all – Old Lady, Beth, Coaster Punchman, Lulu, Dale – we’re in. Marni and Bubs sound like they’re in.
October 1, 2006. Be there. Or after school, you’re dead.
