The familiar alert that a new text had arrived interrupted my cooking so I ignored it a while.  (Come on, your shock at the fact that I was attempting to cook should make you understand that there was no way I could break concentration, right?  Moving on.)

Eventually stuff on the stovetop no longer needed constant attention so washed my hands and checked the beloved EVO’s messages.  (I just realized that my phone doesn’t have a name.  How the fuck could I have gone for almost a year and a half with no name for my phone?  Eek!  Suggestions?)  ( Ok, where was I?  I really need to write here more often in an effort to help lose some of this scattered brain.  Sheesh.)  My high school best friend had sent me a “Just found this pic of you and E at the zoo” message with this photo attached:

First of all, at first I didn’t even remember going to the zoo with little dude.  Secondly, I am not even certain that I ever looked like that.  And lastly, the child in that photo turned 14 this past March.  FOUR FUCKING TEEN!  (translation:  I am old!)

Back and fourth our texts flew, mostly about how times have changed and all, but then she sent two more pictures from a long ago trip to South Park (I think it was South Park):


I was flabbergasted.  Basically  I have it in my head that I have always looked the way that I do now while somehow thinking that I still look exactly like I did then.  I forget sometimes that I am 40 and was young once.  (And apparently was at least 75 pounds lighter than I actually am.)  My head has an awesome mashup of me and I kinda like it.

Anyhow, I asked how old she thought I was in the two images of me alone and when the reply was “22″ I just couldn’t believe it.  Not that she has any reason to lie, but wow.  22.


Might have to pull out the old photo albums.  Was fun flashing back for a few minutes while dinner cooked.  Kinda wanna check out the “reality” of pictures as opposed to trusting my memory.  If I find anything fun perhaps I’ll slap it up here.  Really has been too long.  Don’t like neglecting this blog.  I think I sorta miss writing here…


First person to comment on my shades or Steelers shirt gets spanked.  Same for the fact that I look like Yinzer Secret Service Agent or something.  Also, commenting on the tight jeans with penny loafers and a t-shirt (and a scrunchie around the wrist!) shall result in spankings as well.  Then again, I still have about a dozen white t-shirts that I live in and I don’t have a lick of fashion sense now so I guess not having it then is no surprise…

    OK, so there’s lots of stuff I CAN’T comment about, according to your rules.

    So I’ll just say that the tar strip in the parking lot in the second picture makes it look like you have a tail. That is all.

    I thought it was a snake! Then I wondered why you would be holding a snake. No comment about the shades ;)

    Geez – does no one like spankings anymore?!
    You look adorable – and sooo young – in spite of the cheesy clothes (hey – who didn’t dress cheesy then?!)!
    Also, you keep your tail hidden nicely, now.
    ALSO, you are still adorable – and very young looking!
    Definitely post more often, please!

    I meant despite instead of in spite – whatever – it’s early…

    Damn, woman. You *do* look exactly the same. Would you please age a little so the rest of us don’t look so bad?

    Nice tail. (re B.E.Earl)

    I love reminiscing on old photos. They make great blog posts when you shake yourself out of the wistful thinking back on times gone by.
