When my sister was here a few weeks ago, we nearly died of laughter looking at old photos. Our sides literally (as in, really and truly) ached from cracking up.
She brought this treasure with her. Her second grade class picture I think. (SO CUTE!)
BUT how did those bangs happen? How did the person taking the picture not sweep them to the side to hide the large untrimmed chunk? And the person who braided her hair so nicely--why did she NOT notice?
Our hypothesis: After braiding her hair, maybe our mom stood back and thought that her bangs were hiding her pretty face so she did a quick hurry-we're-late-but-I-want-to-see-those-pretty-blues trim and didn't take a second look. It for sure makes for awesome laughs nearly 30 years later. ;)
And then there were these. My taken-at-home senior pictures-"The Blue Hat" version. Why? I don't recall ever wearing that hat in any other situation. Perhaps I thought it matched my shirt?
And the boots. What in the world?
Please note how it is sitting atop my head so as to not crush my "natural" curls.
Ahh...and then there's the hat-on-the-knee shot. Because sitting around with a blue straw hat on your knee is very normal.
Laughter is good for the soul. :)
