I’m going two ways with this post. The first is a photo taken of me in May 2000 – so just over 10 years ago. Nothing embarrassing here (at least not for me). Yeah, I had shaved my head. Very functional hairstyle. woo hoo. So exciting.
And now for the embarrassing bit. Here’s me, ready for my Junior High Prom – sooooo, I guess 1987 (23 years ago). It’s not pretty. Steel yourself. This is me in full-on Don-Johnson (Miami Vice) mode; sleeves rolled up and everything. I make no apologies. yeah, I was a dork. My pants were too high on my waist. My hair was not stylish at all. My glasses were too big. I had tassels on my shoes… and I had my one and only date with a girl.
Okay, maybe i do make one apology. I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to her. Dawn, you probably would have actually enjoyed your prom a lot more if you had gone with someone who wasn’t a closet case. To ensure this never happened again – neither the ruining of someone’s good time nor the fashion trainwreck you see before you – I did skip all future dances and proms. Hope that goes some way towards making amends.
