I haven't completely humiliated myself yet here for Sincerely 'Fro Me To You. I don't have a whole bunch of pictures from my past and the ones I did happen to have ganked from my mom's house before the fire are typically the pictures I liked... so there weren't a whole lot of really embarrassing ones to choose from.
That is until my sister gave me a framed picture of our family from a long time ago. It sure was interesting to look at. It was before The Man, before four of the youngest generation were even thought of, before my other sister's current husband joined our family and when her ex-husband was still a part of it.
However, it wasn't that picture that I'm posting. It was the picture that my sister had put behind that picture in the frame. I don't think she realized it was back there and, honestly, I'm not sure what possessed me to open up the frame and see if there were any other pictures stuffed in there.
But I did. And there it was. The subject of today's Sincerely 'Fro Me To You post.
The year was 1989. The first Bush had just taken office, the Cold War was ending, and Paula Abdul was rocking the charts with Straight Up.
I was in 7th grade.
But wait... there's more.
Seeing this picture inspired me to dig out my 7th grade yearbook. I had friends on the yearbook staff in middle school. Friends who I still know to this day. Friends who should have known better than to publish a picture such as this in a book that would be looked at for years to come.
You might wonder what I'm doing there. I'm doing the chicken dance. At an assembly. With my principal. I love how I wrote "stupid picture" across the front of my shirt.
As if I had to point that out.
It is possibly the most humiliating photograph ever taken of me. Definitely the most humiliating photograph taken of me and then distributed to over 300 of my peers.
I'm not sure what inspired me to actually do such a thing.
Oh yes, I do remember. I won a Milli Vanilli tape for doing it.
That's right. Blame It On The Rain, peeps.
