This, ladies and gentlemen is my grade nine graduation photo. I've been hoding off for awhile from sharing it with you. As you can probably see why. Amanda thought I should post it when we stumbled across it in my old photo album, along with some really nice, pimply-faced, greasy-haired, buckteethed shots of me. How any of us managed to survive that era is really just beyond me.
As you can see in the photo, I had yet to discover the benefits of tweezing the eyebrows and of course I too had the sausage roll bangs. Dustin said it so nicely when he said I looks like Darren in drag. Thanks honey. At the time I'd never felt so beautiful. All gussied up in my new navy lace dress from Mariposa with droopy shoulders cuz I took out the shoulder pads. Wearing a bad shade of red lipstick. And oh the eyebrows. I do look a little drag queenesque don't I? I think the tackiest part of all was the fact that I happened to be wearing ugly black leather sandals. And they weren't dressy sandals either. Just down right fugly.
I'll have you know Dustin, that at our grade nine grad as I was dressed up so lovely that night I was thought to be hot by many a greasy faced adolecent male. So there!
