Rocking the 60' and 70's School Photos, or How to Get Your *ss Kicked at School
I've decided not to wait for the "embarrassing school picture" tag. In fact, you can see all of them. Take note of the school dance photo in all of it's overexposed glory. My date was the dweeby clone of the boss's son in Dirty Dancing. And I obviously did not know how to comb out my hair after taking the curlers out. Sweet. And how about that plaid blazer, powder blue top, and huge beads? When my father showed this one to the guys at the office they wanted to know why his "son" was wearing a necklace. The one with the big yellow bow is when I did my hair by myself, after my mom had pulled a drunken all nighter, and I literally had to step over broken glass to get through the living room and go to school. Good times. My all time favorite is the black & white of me and my friend from English class. I really loved him, he was so sweet.
It's amazing that I made it out of school alive. If I hadn't been able to change my clothes and put makeup on at my best friend's house, I would have looked like these pictures every day. But the photos were really for the parents, so I wore what they wanted me to. Some day, I'll show you the flip side of school.
