If you’ve been reading this Web site for a while you probably already know that I don’t hold too much back. I will write about almost anything personal, the more self-depricating the better. I like to admit to the ridiculous and embarrassing things I did as a kid, like this. I even posted a story I wrote as a kid, a story filled with atrocious grammar and spelling. (Nothing’s really changed there, am I right?)
Why is this important? Because when it comes to the pictures I have featured today, I am truly embarrassed for myself. And because I’m so embarrassed by them, I decided that this was going to be my biggest test yet. And so I have asked myself, “Can you post some of your most embarrassing photographs, Michele? Can you?”
Yes, Michele. Yes, you can.
THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL YEARS
(Descriptions, if any, are above each picture.)
I think I looked pretty cute at age 6.
And then things went down hill. At least with the hair.
Here is a comparison of 1980 to 1981 and then 1981 to 1982.
This was taken during my stint as a kid model for NASCAR.
This was taken at the peak of my Xanadu obsession.
Right before I had that overbite fixed. I swear, my parents are not related.
I’m the second girl in from the right, second row. Just kidding. She’s much prettier.
This was taken in Raleigh. You can probably tell because of the frizz.
Poor Nina, competing with my hair.
I am not sure what to say about these.
A big WTF to my eyebrows and me for sure. But I think the photographer deserves a WTF as well. I mean, who am I? Elizabeth Taylor? No, you don’t need glasses.
AND THE WINNER IS…
This is my most embarrassing picture ever. It was taken when I was 13-years-old. I used to take dance. I was a terrible dancer already and then they had to go and do this. TobyJoe saw this picture and said to my mother, “Well, Diane, you’re only getting one grandkid from us.”
Let’s hope I’m like fine wine because wow.
