Glass Half Full has challenged all of us 'beautiful swans' which of course we all are, to post our 'ugly duckling' photos. Now I seriously have way worse photos of me as a child than this one, but this one has a story.
First, my dad told me once that this is the photo that he thinks captures 'me' and that this is how he'll remember me as a child. Along with my prom photo, THIS is the photo he carries around of me in his wallet. (along with the photo of me and N, and a few of Elliot, of course)
Secondly, this is my 2nd grade class photo. Recently, I joined myspace and I had so much fun finding people I knew from highschool, that I didn't stop there. I pulled out details of the kids I went to middle school (I went to three different middle schools) and elementary school. Would you believe I found my best friend in second grade? The girl I only knew for one short year (when we were 7!) and then moved away and I never heard from her again? And we remembered each other. Even when I emailed her THIS photo, she chose not to deny the friendship! How cool is that?
The dress I'm wearing was seriously my favourite article of clothing in the world, and I wore it for all occasions. It looks hideous, doesn't it? Don't get me started on those massive glasses. Or the hair. Go ahead and laugh, I am too.
