Remember those awkward years? How can I forget mine? I believe this was my 5th grade school photo. This is one of those photos the family likes to hold over your head. You know, like publish it in the local newspaper on your birthday kind of picture? My sister calls this my "Tom Petty" picture. I remember being so proud of myself for rolling my hair with sponge rollers (the reason for the dent just above the curls). My hair was always so straight and I just wanted to look different. On top of that, look at that chipped tooth! That day is vividly implanted in my brain - read #15 for short recap.
I remember rolling my hair the night before and being so happy about how I was going to look. I had a beautiful image of how pretty my curls were going to be. Wow, was my mind playing tricks on me!
It's funny to look at this picture and see how pretty the color of my hair was. Was is the key word here since it's turned more of a dirty dishwater color frosted with gray.
This was one of my favorite shirts. I liked it because my lunch ticket would fit just perfectly in the front pocket. I hated when I grew out of it.
So, how about you? I'm proposing a challenge. I dare you all to post your awkward childhood picture. Come on! Do it!
Leave me a comment when you're done.
