If it were only not true.
I was minding my own business Tuesday morning when a message arrived with startling news.
A sweet friend that I think I’ve seen exactly once in the last 20+ years sent me a little heads-up:
So, I was scrolling through this little thing a friend posted on Facebook this morning. Just flipping through on my phone, kinda scrolling fast, 'cause it was funny, you know, but not like super funny or anything. But, then, hey, hold on a second, screech the scrolling to a stop half way through, because YOU are in this thing!! What?!
And then… I clicked on the link she gave, and saw a title that made my eyes widen (pun intended).
And sometimes I really dislike being right.
I reluctantly clicked on it, and my retinas were immediately traumatized.
Remember how you were supposed to have loads of makeup, hair teased to ridiculous heights, popped collars, satin gloves, the whole bit?
Well I blogged about it once up on a time. Remember when that poor girl was exposed for the whole mall to see? I posted it three years ago. And then y’all hassled me into posting the pictures that I had taken over 20 years ago?
So then I did?
Well, then THEY did.
Steal them, I mean.
Buzzfeed stole my ridiculous Glamour Shot picture off my blog. Which, y’know, is all kinds of humiliating funny.
I giggled about it until I saw that the post had been viewed…
FOUR AND A HALF MILLION TIMES.
And for some reason, it’s getting shared around again. So I thought I’d do some damage control and post the one semi-normal picture here, so y’all don’t think I’m some weird satin-glove-wearing chick with a random floating head against a dark background.
And by semi-normal, I mean please excuse the insane hair.
Now, just so I don’t have to suffer alone… here’s my sister’s shot.
(I’m safe because she can’t unfriend me this close to Christmas.)
Keep in mind, she was twelve years old. TWELVE.
So… can you figure out which one I am? Because people didn’t believe me at first. But then, c’mon…, becoming the butt of an internet joke is totally up our alley, right?
Hey, at least it wasn’t People of Walmart. WIN!
